    Ouch is right! I want to know exactly what ammo he was using so I know to avoid it... so a .38 fired from a .357 (i'd assume snubie) bounces off of a desk top and fails to penetrate the guys arm - unless the classroom is extremely long and the guy who was hit had arms much larger than most people's legs it sure sounds like a weak cartridge. You would think that the bullet would have either punched through the desk with ease, or if at a small enough angle it would have carried most of its energy and passed through the guys arm. No broken bone and no through and through.... freak accident in favor of those behind him I suppose...

    I bet they couldn't hear any instruction after that!

    This is what they would have heard from me "I want my money back".

    An instructor so complacent as to not check to see if a firearm is not loaded is slipping. Accidents do happen but really.

    I think the instructor missed the his basic handgun course. You know, the one that teaches the basic tenets: Always assume every firearm is loaded, Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction, and keep your finger off the trigger until you have made the decision to fire. He blew all three.
