In the end, it is up to them to eat the cost to build one more for me and make this a positive PR situation or suffer some amount of blemish on their reputation.
I have to be honest with you, that's a bit unfair IMO and if I was them I wouldn't do it (nor would I expect them to in your shoes).
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
