Thread: Had to Remove a Student Today - Opinions Sought

    You handled it good. I had a friend one time while shooting the gun misfired instead of him clearing it he looked down the barrel while squeezing the trigger then the pistol discharged barley missing his face. I immediately took the gun he's never gone with us since

    I agree that you gave hime too many chances. In the military, if you flag anyone, the Sgt would come over to you and you would not be able to get up for about 10 minutes after he closed line you.

  4. There are some people that are not mentally capable to handle a gun. this guy seems like a gsv waiting to happen. I assure you that in the next few months you will see in the paper where he either shot himself or someone else.

    I personally believe it went on too long. After the 1st request he should have been ejected. I would have each student sign something at the sign up of the class that "any" safety violations will result in immediate ejection of the class. This will put the responsibility back onto the student. There is no way to remove all the crazies from your line of work but you can limit the damage they may cause by acting fast and severely if a violation occurs.

    The second time he unsafely handled the gun it would have been "out" of here!

    Amazed

    I am a new owner of a pistol and CCL, about 4 months and I am continually amazed at how people like this have a license. I applaud your professionalism and patience with this bozo. Is there a way you can pursue getting his permit revoked ?

    When we tried to disarm him, he refused to hand over the gun. One instructor was a police officer and gave him a choice. Hand it over or be arrested on a reckl-ass endangerment charge. He handed it over. We took his ammo (paid him for it) and escorted him out, locking the gate behind him. I think the message was sent.

    Good job handling a bad situation.

    That's pretty "muddy" in legal terms confiscating the guys gun even though the instructor was a LEO.
    The situation could have been even "muddier" if no LEO had been there.

    Idiots born every minute!
    I had a similar incident about 8 years ago with a security guard when I was conducting a re-certification, were on the line conducting live fire. He wanted to keep turning around with a hot weapon. Needless to say he did not keep weapon pointed down range or at the ground!..After 3rd occurrence we removed him from the line and he like your guy wanted to instruct us how we were wrong.

    We had his security license revoked.

    I think you made the only call you could make to keep others safe!

    You did the right thing, not just for the sake of the club, your career but for his own sake. I took a friend shooting one time. I got him setup on the line, gave him the run down, and went off to the long range line. Well when I left him I heard later the RO had raised his voice with my friend a few times. The violation was primarily not keeping the muzzle pointed down range. Some may say this is my fault for not staying with the friend, but he had his own firearm and I assumed he knew how to use it (safely). My friend was inexperienced and is much better now, but your student was just an plan idiot.

    Seriously at the 2nd or 3rd chance that's game over, get out. This guy is an accident waiting to happen.
