    Make shure you take that gun safety class

    Gun Safety Instructor Shoots Student In Class

    Posted: 13 Aug 2013 02:00 PM PDT

    I don't think there's anything to add to this story:

    Oh the irony. An Ohio man was shot in the arm. At a gun safety class.

    Michael Piemonte was attending a concealed-carry class with his wife Alison in central Ohio's Fairfield County over the weekend. Such classes are required for anyone wanting carry a concealed weapon in the state.

    There were 29 students in the lecture-type class, Piemonte said. He was sitting in the front row.

    While the instructor was demonstrating a self-defense techniques, the gun went off.

    The bullet struck Piemonte in the arm. Even he didn't realize what had happened.

    "Everyone was in shock," he told CNN. "It took me a couple of seconds to realize that I had been shot."

    The 26-year-old said he's in good spirits. "I'm just glad my wife did not get hit."

    The instructor did not return a call for comment, but Piemonte said he has been calling him regularly to check in.

    "It makes me feel good that he is so concerned," he said.
