When signing up for a concealed carry class, writtten notification was given that
- A pistol and ammunition were to be brought to the course location;
- Students would line up and present their UNLOADED weapons either in a holster or in a box for inspection before entering the classroom;
- Ammunition was to remain in vehicles;
- If any weapon or ammunition was discovered during inspection or in the classroom, automatic expulsion sans refund would result;
My initial reaction to the fact that the instructor donned a vest before starting the inspections was amusement until I thought about the number of accidental discharges that occur each year, and that the instructors had no way of knowing whether any given student was a yahoo or not.

Gary Kassel, 56, of Syracuse, was unloading the .40-caliber Glock and didn't realize there was still a round in the chamber when he pointed the gun at the cement floor and pulled the trigger "to render the gun safe," deputies said.
Anyone ever notice when incidents like this occur, or in criminal shootings, Glocks are the only guns mentioned by name?
The gun grabbers really have a hard-on when it comes to the lack of a manual safety, among other things.

George...in my Gun class here in massachusetts...the instructor had all the guns, and all the students , no matter what their background, were considered to be novices. The Instructor made sure all of his guns were empty, before the class began and at all times. Only during the actually shooting test, were we allowed to have a loaded gun, by that time the instructor was assured we knew how to handle a gun. The Gun test was also a one on one with the instructor.
