Accidental Pistol Discharge Becomes a Great Lesson in Gun Safety

Always keep your weapon pointed in a safe direction.

In this gun training class, a pistol accidentally discharges. Good thing it was a teachable moment.

In this video shared on Facebook by ViralHog we witness why gun safety is so very important. This is especially true of keeping the weapon pointed in a safe direction at all times.

A shooter is on the firing line while being given commands. He draws is unloaded weapon a couple times practicing the shooting routine. When he inserts a loaded magazine and pulls back the slide things go bad quick. With the shooter’s finger off the trigger this pistol has a malfunction and fires a round downrange when the slide moves forward. It is a good thing that pistol was pointed in a safe direction when the hammer dropped in this pistol malfunction.

As shooters and hunters we must all times adhere to all gun safety rules at all times. Failure to do so could leave a very bad lasting impression.
