    The shooting occurred when Calvin Smith was showing another student in the course how to properly grip her gun when it discharged, and Crystal Smith, who was standing beside the other student on the firing line, was shot. Sheriff Chuck Wright said on Saturday that the bullet passed through Crystal Smith’s arm and entered her side.
    Wright said Calvin Smith, a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division certified concealed weapons permit course instructor, was unaware a bullet had been chambered into the pistol. Calvin Smith was off duty when the shooting occurred.

    There have been a large number of folks in this area obtaining CWP.

    If he had remembered 1) then gun is always loaded, 2) never point your weapon at anything you don't want to destroy 3) finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire this could have been avoided.

    You break one of the basic gun laws, you are asking for trouble. Break three, then you will most likely be learning a very costly lesson as these folks did here in Spartanburg.

    Stay safe out there! :thumbup:
