You know those videos we sometimes share with you that feature a highly respected firearms instructor blowing you away (no pun intended) with their essential shooting techniques? Yeah, this isn’t one of those. Rather, it’s a firearms instructor carelessly firing off a negligent discharge.

Firearms Instructor Fires Off Negligent Discharge

In the video above, we have a firearms instructor going through basic lessons some with his students when the .44 Magnum he’s handling negligently discharges. He tries to play it cool. He even jokingly responding in the affirmative when asked by somebody off-camera if he “meant” to do that. But the look on his face tells a very different story.

As our readers are no doubt aware, this firearms “instructor” violated one of the four cardinal rules of gun safety and nearly earned a trip to the morgue in the process. Say it with us, everybody: Always keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot. Be safe, kids.
