How Not to Be a Firearms Instructor

This more properly belongs at the gun blog, but the events contained are so extraordinarily dangerous they deserve an audience as wide as I can provide.

Front Sight is a firearms training school with a good reputation for their level of instruction, even if they have gotten in a bit of hot water over some of their off-range antics trying to establish a shooting-based resort.

Recently, an excellent shooter with very impressive shooting skills submitted a series of videos to Front Sight's director as a sort of visual resume.

You won't believe what this guy did. I highly suggest that if you ever come across someone like this, you find the most convenient exit possible, and take it.

Needless to say, the would-be instructor didn't get the job.

I just hope he doesn't use his students as "hostages."

just wow.

from the age of ten when my father started instructing me the one cardinal rule that was never to be broken even with an unloaded gun was never to point a firearm at a person ever. loaded or unloaded. unless you were in mortal danger from that person.

all other rules revolve around that one.

My grandfather shot a cigarette out of another man's mouth on a dare. It's not really his fault though. They were all pretty drunk.

(Completely true. And he hit the smoke, but didn't put it out, which was the bet, so he lost.)

His previous partners could not be reached for comment :)

These scenarios have russian-roulette vibe, see "The Deer Hunter".
