I really hope this is an air soft shop. Clearly that is not a real grenade, but if I popped off smoke in my local gun shop there would be multiple drawn pistols…
Eyes and ears people. If you don’t take care of them, you won’t get to keep them.
I totally get the thrill of shooting larger caliber weapons. I do.
But as the owner of some of those guns, I also need to know that I am not going to hand a larger caliber weapon to a novice shooter until I see them work up to it by shooting smaller caliber, easier to learn on, weapons.
Be safe, shoot smart.
I feel really bad for this shooter. He probably didn’t think he’d be going to the hospital when he went to the range.
Be safe out there, it just takes a small moment of lapsed judgement to end up in the hospital, or worse…
In the grand scheme of things, this might seem like a minor infraction, but if a hot casing bounces off the truck and ends up in or near an eye, its not going to seem so minor anymore.
Be safe out there, always wear the right gear and follow safe gun handling instructions.
These guys are so lucky no one was hurt.
This is why you treat every weapon like its loaded, and you always point it down range.
If there were two rounds on that gun, he easily could have jerked the trigger on the recoil and killed someone next to him or behind him.
Be careful, be safe, treat every weapon like its loaded, and don’t put your finger on the trigger until your siting down range. Using a safety is also good practice, but it really is the last resort in safe gun handling.
I can see that at least the two semi auto’s don’t have clips in them – but is there a round in the chamber?
Sure, this shooter probably checked every weapon before he had a bit of fun, but it does violate two key rules of firearms.
- Treat every gun like its loaded.
- Guns aren’t props or toys.
Be safe out there.
I feel sorry for this fellow and hope he is okay.
Be safe out there, treat every weapon like its loaded, and make sure it is on safe and there isn’t a shell/round in the chamber if you need to set it down.
What happened to treating every weapon like its loaded?
Guns are not props, and guns are not toys. End of story.
