“I’m the only one professional enough…”


As a general rule, the most dangerous people on the gun range are not the new shooters (n00bz as they are sometimes referred to as).

If a new shooter is doing something wrong, then they tend to immediately and positively respond to correction. Usually the mistake is not having the gun pointed downrange while in the shooting booth or moving an unholstered or uncased gun outside of the shooting booth.

From my experience, the most dangerous people that I have encountered on the gun range are the ones who think they already know everything because they last shot a handgun at Fort Benning over 30 years ago or that their good luck in not unintentionally shooting anyone in spite of their unsafe gun handling is a validation that they are doing everything right and how dare you tell them any different!

The mistake that I see the longtime informal shooters make is not having the gun pointed downrange while in the shooting booth or moving an unholstered or uncased gun outside of the shooting booth and “flagging” the people in the other booth with the muzzle of the gun. (Back to NRA Rule #1: “Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction”.)

When it comes to gun ownership, humility and a willingness to learn go a very long way. I remind myself at times that I am the most dangerous shooter on the range since I can fall into the same trap as the type of person mentioned above.

  1. […] GA_googleFillSlot("TaurusArmed-300P"); Today is going to be a doozy with some postings I have coming. First up, this arrogant agent teaching a class has the audacity to say that he is the only one qualified to shoot the glock .40 that he is holding, yet he barely finishes his sentence when he shoots himself in the foot. And then he keeps talking! I can't say anymore, just watch: ?I?m the only one professional enough?? | Gun Safety Blog […]
