That’s some fancy shootin’ to hit two people with one shot. Most people take years to become that proficient.

OOOps!

Was he a DEA agent?

Other than .45 caliber, what kind of gun was it?

Well, thank God he is in a GUN SAFETY CLASS because clearly, he NEEDS it!

By the way, was this Dick CHeney?

Thomas Starke, the instructor told police that he left the room and soon heard a shot.

Don't let this person ever teach another class.

He is unsafe at any speed.

Why did untrained students have their own loaded guns ?

I’ve heard it called a “Quiggly”. Personally I’d bet there’s once-fired .45 for sale. cheap.

Did he have one of those Dan Wesson Havoc’s with a trigger pull so light, you could breath on it to fire (for competition only).

“My common sense really hopes this means they didn’t pass this class...”

I know a police sergeant in a major city that shot himself in the foot. He kept his position but with no small amount of razzing from his fellow officers.

What better firearm safety class than shooting yourself?

Again, in answer to the question, should everyone own a gun that was posed earlier this week, no, some folks are just not cut out for gun ownership.

This guy and the guy who shot his girlfriend thinking he was shooting a hog (fired blindly) is the other example from just this week why the answer is no.
