    Props to that RSO. How do you grab the hand/gun when someone does that and not risk the trigger getting pulled? I would be scared to death that grabbing their hand would cause them to react and tense up.

    Basic firearms safe handling and manipulation should be taught in every school and be part of every citizenship exam. If they really wanted to save lives........

    I've actually seen dumber stuff. Went out the the woods to do some steel drills. Saw two guys shooting and one of them fired his pistol right next to the other one's ear. They also had "targets" set up to where they were shooting at 90 degree angles without a backstop.

    Yeah, I got out of there quick.

    Stuff like this makes me smile.

    I love our right to keep and bear arms.

    Sadly that means people like this guy has that right too!

    Looks like a foreign country. What nations flag was on the RSO's hat?

    RSO redirects the pistol downrange in a hurry. As soon as it's moved, doesn't matter much if it is fired.

    Yeah, I'll do my shooting at the club thx... I've had enough close encounters even there!

    WOW! That was almost in the “selfies taken moments before disaster” site. That’s a fast moving RSO right there.
