Y'all hear about this?

One 'high speed, low drag' sooper-seekrit operator (Sonny Puzikas) runs a shoot house exercise without clearing the range first, goes into a room, and engages a 'target' with 3 rounds without verifying the target with light. Turns out that the 'target' was another instructor taping targets.

Sonny Puzikas has a reputation of being unsafe. He has posted some super stupid videos to youtube, and then says that it's 'big boy rules' when people call him on it. Same excuse that uber-douche James Yeager used when he had living-and-breathing human photographers downrange between targets while students were shooting!: http://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2012/03/08/tactical-response-still-puts-photographers-down-range/

Anyway- If you take a training class here is a tip: Research the heck out of the instructors, and if anything seems unsafe, STOP. Demand a refund. there are too many good trainers out there that are safe to risk going to this kind of tomfoolery.
