Who doesn’t love a good compilation clip of people doing stupid things with firearms? We all do, and this one combines some of the best acts of negligence involving firearms and uses them to make points about safety.

There’s three main points made in this video, one of which is to always practice proper trigger discipline, in other words, always keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire the weapon. The clips shown are a beautiful example of what happens when this single most important safety measure is overlooked, especially because some firearms have a very light trigger that take next to nothing to fire.

The second point made is always know how to properly handle your weapon. The people shown are presumably first-time shooters, or at least are unfamiliar with the particular gun they’re firing and you can see the result. Fortunately nobody was injured in this video but that doesn’t mean that it’s not possible.

They also make the point about proper attire when shooting. While heels and low cut blouses may be fun to wear, shooting is about practicality. Granted, it’s always good to train in the same attire you would be wearing if you had to defend yourself, but for everyday target shooting it’s probably best to wear clothing that will protect you from hot brass or burning powder.

Anyways, enjoy the compilation. Remember, ALWAYS practice proper firearm safety and don’t ever try to replicate what you’ve seen on this video, you’ll just end up getting hurt.
