The big question is, were you shot by a classmate, the teacher, or yourself? The level of fml rises exponentially in that order.

They were trying to teach what NOT to do, you just happen to be the not-so-lucky participant. I'm sure everyone learned a valuable lesson on gun safety that day.

Time to fire the teacher.

We don't have the full story

"Yeah I got shot by a 9 foot grizzly with a 45 magnum in a bar fight on fire"

wait were you, the gun, the bear, or the bar on fire?

What was the caliber??

It's a gun safety course, so probably 9mm.

Actually, most safety and basic training classes use .22 LR, not 9mm. It is a much smaller round with almost no recoil, so good for first time shooters. It is also much cheaper. 9mm costs $15-20 per 50 rounds of range ammo. I've bought 500 round boxes of the same brand/quality .22 LR for about $30.

Obviously pretty low. High-caliber gun safety courses don't allow their students to get shot.

Doesn't mean accidents don't or won't happen, Richard.

Accidents happen, Richard. I was just curious as to what caliber he got shot with because I've been shot with .22LR in my right calf, not a fun experience.

Did you pass the training then?

Well hopefully after you pass the course this won't happen again.

At least they said sorry right?

It would be a pretty dick move to just say "sorry", especially when it meant whoever was handling the gun was handling it at the wrong time or the wrong way. In training classes I've taken, you only aim and shoot in one direction/area, but it also depends on the gun they were working with.

Is your name Jim Carrey? It's Jim Carrey isn't it?

Given the passive tone used here ("I got shot" vs "someone shot me"), it's probably a fair assumption that they accidentally shot themselves.

I would like to believe that it's all of the above

Killbot 1: "We're gonna get fired." Killbot 2: "SOMEONE SAID FIRE!"

sounds like a sketchy course considering i just did mine in Alberta and all the guns in my course were modified to not fire and all the bullets were duds
