What happen to the gun instructor was an accident. He was killed when a 9 year old fired an automatic gun and she couldn't handle the recoil. It's a sad tragedy but I still believe that kids need to be taught the proper handling of guns and teach them the importance of it. My husband taught our daughter how to fire a small gun when she was 7 and she likes the fact that she can defend herself if there is a worse case scenario that she needs it. I pray that nothing happens like that though. On another note, I finally found heat guns online . Hubby designated me to find this kind of gun that we can use on our project downstairs.
