A gun safety lesson to remember.

I think it was extremely effective in getting the point across:
A 26-year-old Phoenix man accidentally killed himself early Sunday while explaining gun safety to two Sierra Vista residents.
Samuel Benally Jr. was at an apartment on West Tacoma Street when he said guns should be kept unloaded because people could point them at their heads, said Sierra Vista police Sgt. Brett Mitchell.
Benally then demonstrated by putting his own 9mm Ruger, which he believed to be unloaded, to his head and firing it, Mitchell said.
Benally was flown to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Mitchell said.
An investigation is ongoing, but police do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved, Mitchell said.

Awful. Never, never point a gun at yourself or someone else.

That is just plain dumb. Never point the gun at anything that you wouldn't shoot...just the most stressed rule of gun safety ever.

Idiot. Always point the muzzle in a safe direction, even when you think it is unloaded. That is the first thing taught in any safety class.

damn thats ****ed up.

Everyone always makes fun of me when we're using guns (we usually use shot guns) cause no matter how unloaded i know the gun is, i never point the muzzle towards anyone. For example, I could have JUST unloaded it, have the action open, a lock through the action, a trigger lock on, and still be anal about where the muzzle is pointing as I put it in the case. I know its obsessive but I guess it's just habit.

That is good because you are training your body to do this through your habit. If it even saves you from doing something stupid once, it is worth it.

Personally, I don't shoot with guys who are lax about this and I watch others at the range for the same thing. It only takes once to really screw things up.

The guys I'm with are very cautious, and we are constantly pointing things out to each other if anyone get's careless for any reason... they just think i go a little overboard, but w.e. We all make safety our #1 priority tho... I've seen everyone I hunt with pass up on good shots for the sake of safety, so i feel pretty safe.

I've seen hardened US Marine combat veterans accidently shoot themselves or others more than once. Usually fatique leads to carelessness. They're professionals with the best weapons training in the world, that live with their weapons 24/7 and where safety is stresseed 24/7, but accidents still happen.
