What exactly happened in this shocking video?

Well this shooter is lucky he still has all of his toes.

Witness the gun range fail that certainly could have ended up much worse.

In this video shared by YouTuber Vince Pinto we witness an inexcusable gun safety violation that could have been fatal.

While the kilted range officer looks on with timer in hand the shooter readies himself. Upon draw he fires a round off directly into the ground in front of his feet. He holds the pistol out like it is a venomous snake that just bit at it’s owner.

Well buddy I hate to tell you that the trigger was pulled before you were on target by, you guessed it, you. Light competition trigger or not you are responsible for every round you fire. The moral of the story for the rest of us is don’t be that guy.
