>Sounds like a bad joke, doesn't it? A man attends a gun safety classand accidentally shoots himself -- and his wife. It was no joke for Michael and Michelle Deel of Roanoke, Va., who both took a firearms safety class over the weekend. When the instructor left the room, Michael shot himself in the hand with a .45-caliber handgun. The bullet passed through his hand and struck Michelle, who was sitting next to him, in the leg. The couple was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening wounds. No word on whether they'll be taking a makeup class.<
Just wondering, did he load it himself, or did the instructor leave a loaded gun with them?
Don't play with something smarter than you are....not sure? Ask...don't touch...that cat named Curiosity...he's dead.

Another reason why a professional instructor would never mix the ammo and firearm when not actually on the range and under controlled situations. Doing a gun safety class at a residence? Unsupervised gun handling - with ammo in/near the gun? WTF?
Proper safety is paramount. NO AMMO in a room when you have firearms present unless that room is a range. Period.
