Okay, maybe this guy didn’t OWN the gun. But as RF is fond of pointing out, if the gun is in your hands, you ‘own’ it. Now I’ve been to the range I don’t know how many times. And every time I go to a new range, I have to go through their safety check procedure, put in place to make sure I don’t do something stupid. But I’ve found that in life, it’s impossible to make anything foolproof, if for no better reason, fools are so ingenious. In all my range time, I’ve never seen an item on the safety checklist “be sure and don’t put your hand in front of the barrel and pull the trigger.”
After seeing this video, I suspect some ranges may be adding this admonition to their list.
