    I know that sounds like a hassle and more work, but I'd rather take the extra 2 minutes to ensure safety, than to see someone get hurt or killed.
    The class I went to the instructor met us each at the door and we had to show clear. Any loaded magazines got left on the table in the entry way.

    But about 3/4 of the way in to the class he found out that one of the guys who was auditing w/ his wife had a loaded revolver in a shoulder holster. I don't remember him asking the guy to leave though.

  4. Isn't the reason that some Floridians oppose Constitutional Carry is because if untrained people carried guns they would accidentally shoot each other?

    It's a shame, but the Instructor forgot the three rules of handling a gun. It's loaded, it's loaded, it's loaded. Until YOU ensure it's CLEAR, it's Loaded.

    Sorry to see the Orlando Slantnel ran the story. NOTHING BUT Libs and flamers working there.

    In the NRA classes that I teach, I cannot have a loaded firearm in the classroom, therefore NOBODY can have a loaded firearm in the classroom. I don't care who you are, LEO included. I've asked many LEO to "unload, clear and store" their firearms or leave the classroom. I had one guy get into a hissy, going on and on about how he's qualified, etc. I brought up the video of "Lee Paige" (former DEA Agent who shot himself in the foot during a presentation at a school). The guy still refused to comply. Luckily, there was a captain from the same department attending the class with his son. He came up, identified himself as a captain, then had a chat with the opinionated officer. A few minutes later, the guy apologized for being an azz, cleared and stored his firearm as requested, then the class was under way.

    Of the many classes I have conducted, only 2 have had major disruptions due to folks insisting that they should be allowed to break the rules.

    Not my reason. If untrained people shoot untrained people that cleans out the STUPID gene pool.

    Buckslayer- I'm thinking about going back to that, too. Another instructor told me that I was too 'paranoid' about safety, so I relaxed a bit. I'm glad someone other than me does that. I feel better. Thx

    Not quite. Even after I've personally ensured that it's clear...

    ... it is STILL loaded.
