Let's remember to be careful out there folks.

(and for you fellow Utahwanians, no jokes about the goofy owner of the range- this is a serious issue... even if he is an incredible butthead...)

From the Salt Lake Tribune, April 24

Gun instructor wounded

A man was airlifted to University Hospital in serious condition after an accident at a Kearns indoor shooting range, authorities said Wednesday. The man, an instructor, was teaching a woman how to shoot at Totally Awesome Guns and Range, 4075 W. 4715 South, about 7 p.m. Tuesday, when a hot piece of brass discharged from a gun and went down her blouse, said Salt Lake County sheriff's Sgt. Shane Hudson. She flinched involuntarily and accidentally shot the instructor in the thigh, he said. Authorities did not identify those involved.

(emphasis added)


Obviously this unfortunate incident could have been avoided through strict adherence to The Rules, and possibly a little more awareness on the part of the instructor.

Well, I've heard of a "drug bust" - I guess this is a "gun bust"... :D
