Instant Replay

A 23-year-old man was shot at the Instant Replay Pawn Shop and Shooting Range in Orlando, Fla. The man accidentally shot himself — a minor grazing wound to his leg — while trying to re-holster his 9mm pistol. He was there for a gun safety class, which he needs to become a security officer. “Everything was safe,” says store owner Ryan Stumph. “It was done in a safe manner — um, not shooting yourself, of course.” Stumph noted that “You want people to make sure they’re handling themselves safely with firearms in the public, so that’s why we put them through the training situations. So if they can’t do it here, they definitely can’t do it in public.” Sheriff’s deputies are looking at security camera videos as part of their investigation, and the man was taken to the hospital. (RC/Orlando Sentinel) ...No! He really needs that class.
