funny... the first thing I thought of was...
hmmm... must have some major gun legislation coming up.
that aside, I run a cold range. this darwin candidate was giving cherrys live ammo in his house. stupidity should hurt. he was lucky.
btw... I've seen kitchen windows shot out by an "empty" 1911, and a ceiling ventilated by a 12ga.
glocks don't have a monopoly on being handled carelessly.

Uh, dunno about other folks, but I call self loading weapons "safe" when I've removed the clip, worked the slide or bolt and _visually_ inspected the chamber and carrier to make certain there is no ammo in the weapon.
Even if it is empty, you are not supposed to dry-fire a weapon anyway.
Conclusion: The instructor was stupid or his students were not listening (and he was stupid to trust 'em!).
Still, as they say in Cowboy Action Shooting: there are two types of Cowboys; ones who have been DQ'd and ones who WILL be DQ'd.

Oops! I didn't know that card-carrying NRA members (member #025870227) were not allowed to criticize (hushed breath) Glock. Cool it with the inference.
Maybe Glocks don't have a monopoly on being handled carelessly, but you wouldn't believe it by the news reports. That was my point.
