No one really wants to talk about firearms safety.  We all just want it magically to happen to us and everyone around us.  But, like everything else in life it takes work. What can you do if someone around you is being unsafe with a firearm?

Immediately after the safety briefing, as we were getting ready to go into the range, the idiot across the table from me takes his Glock out of his range bag and racks the slide, AND I’M LOOKING DOWN THE MUZZLE.   I told him that if he pointed his gun at me again, that he and I were going to have a serious problem. I thought he should have been kicked out of the class, but the instructor just told him to be more careful.  This was no more than 30 seconds after the safety briefing. Needless to say I never felt safe for the rest of that class. Anyway, keep up the good work Ben. Stay safe, Addressing Firearms Safety: Problems for instructors in class: Everyone has to have the gun on right now Can’t sit still, like a bunch of kids at Christmas Target focus on getting started and here Charlie Brown’s teacher Couple Issues from the past: Training a guy at the armored car company and kicked him for pointing a gun at me Soldier pointing a rifle at me in the chow hall overseas Shotgun pointed at me at a gun shop Shooting Steel with a rifle at 50 yards and having someone ask me about it Solutions?

What can you do to make it better? Praise in Public, Criticize in Private Ask if you can help Be able to explain yourself emotionally and logically Ask Questions… with actual curiosity Play to their egos Get help from range staff or others Leave Huge Leadership Challenge Takes practice Will do it well and badly If we all work at it we can all get better We could all be a little more paranoid about firearms safety We could all improve Handle your weapon every time like the instructor you admire the most is watching and like your kids are watching and how you want them to do it.   Thanks for listening, don’t forget to check out the Shooter’s Club, and if you need ammo check out Lucky Gunner. Stay Safe, Ben
