melcervini The man made a mistake.. To be honest, he made several, but that's not the point. The point is, we've all made mistakes. Luckily no one was hurt here and a lesson was learned.
Internet trolls love to say shit like "STUPID motherfucker! he'd have been escorted off my range RIGHT THEN!" on these kinds of message boards. I guess it makes them feel good about themselves somehow. Kind of sad really.

This gave me a bad flashback of firing a .357 Magnum when I was nine. Dad didn't make sure my arms were locked. Not sure if the hammer pierced my skull or just my skin. All I know is there was a lot of blood pumping out of my head.

Scary. Just how incompetent is this guy? You're supposed to leave the cylinder empty so that very thing doesn't happen. By cocking the gun that way? He put the round in the active spot, then he sticks his finger into the trigger area... inviting disaster. :-/

Three mistakes:
1. Demonstrating with a loaded gun.
2. Failure to keep the gun pointed downrange.
3. Failure to keep finger outside of the trigger guard while demonstrating.

Used to own a Colt Python .357 Magnum, which had a very soft trigger when cocked. This is easy to do if you're not paying attention.

megrendel Should he has pointed the gun upwards or is that a bad thing too? Not a gun owner.

fancylad Always keep it pointed down range, pointing the gun upwards in an indoor range is just false security, it can still make a ricochet go crazy or go through the roof and hit something or someone else. There could be a gas, electrical, or sewage pipe above him or another business. For instance the range I go to actually has a post office above it, which always makes me chuckle a little when I think about it.

fancylad If they were outside? That would be OK... but inside it's just dumb, I think.
Too bad it didn't recoil into his face and smash a few teeth, that would teach him a lesson. Came pretty close, lolz!

@ it's loaded, keep it pointed down range.  If it's not load, treat it like it's loaded.  (I would consider it safe to display the gun IF the cylinder were open.)

fancylad No - If the gone is loaded, always point it towards your target.

Looks like he needs some re-training.

Yea he meant to fire a bullet into the ceiling, and he could have killed someone.  He should not be an instructor or a gun owner, that's careless.

For him, his first mistake was ever picking up a gun. You NEVER cock the hammer during instruction UNLESS the gun is not loaded. Rule number one of gun safety is that a gun is ALWAYS loaded. Even if you just removed  it's ammo, you treat it as loaded.

scheckydamon Learned that rule at 6 years old. Broke it once didn't want to sit down for a while, hehe. In my defense I was 6 and not an instructor.
