Here’s an innocent enough video of a young lad named Jake learning how to shoot a .357 Magnum out on a range with his father.

Note the excellent form on young Jake. Watch his concentration and excellent balance and how he braces for the inevitable kick back. Take notice of the huge grin of excitement plastered on his face after the shot goes off. And then… whoops!

Before you decide to spin around to bask in Dad’s praise kid, how about you go ahead and safety and holster that sidearm? Thanks.
