Incredible safety violation

I almost never stray from the reporting of the local shooting news, but this warrants a deviation from that policy. By now, many of you have seen this video. If you haven’t, then please watch and learn from the mistakes that were made in this situation. It did not occur at any of the local clubs, and I have not seen any reference to where it did occur.

Everyone is responsible for safety on the range, but no one more so than the Range Officer. Many of us are formally trained, and many others handle the timer without the formalities of a USPSA RO class. Regardless of your training level, if you pick up the timer, you must pay attention.

We can debate who was at fault here, but the point is, someone could have been injured or killed, due to carelessness on the part of the RO.
