-- It is a new reflex game. Can you move your hand fast enough to keep the bullet from hitting it once you pull the trigger.

-- Forgot he wasn't wearing his Kevlar glove.

-- Does a breeze come out of the barrel with the bullet

-- wants out of jury duty tomorrow.

Probably then sued the range for not protecting him.

A true idiot. From a scientific perspective, I would have liked to see a close up of his hand though. ��

Amazing stupidity! Oh well...

Did anyone else notice rule #5 of gun safety in the article?

5.Keep your gun at the minimum level of readiness.

Really?

It looked to me like he was trying to get a laser sight to work.... At least his shot hand wasn't his shootin' hand....

It hurt just watching it. I have no idea what he was trying to do or look at but at least it was pointed down range. Dumb, just plain dumb.

Maybe that will keep him away from guns in the future. He was apt to be one of the next big shooting stories that makes us all cringe.

The first and only shot pushed the gun out of the shooter's hand, the hammer spur putting a sizable cut on this moron's forehead, on it's way to slamming into the plexiglass window behind the booths. The two idiots were ''escorted'' out by a extremely angry range master. And yet this video bothers me more than that event.

I believe this is a form of natural selection.. Yet another reason insurance premiums keep going up.

Now he will probably come up with a tall tale of how he fought of 3 attackers and stopped a bullet meant for him with his hand..

As above stated Forest Gump would say..... stupid is as stupid does.
