It's a matter of training. It's better to go over firearm safety before even allowing the person to touch a firearm. I use a dummy gun when I do this (it's foam).

The verbal instruction also affords the trainer an opportunity to determine the communication between pupils and trainer. Is it effective? Are the students learning and demonstrating safe practices?

Then before going to the range, it's firearms handling. How to operate a firearm safely. All classroom. Again, communication, feedback and the trainer determines if the student is suitable for handling a firearm.

After the student(s) is familiar with safety and competent handling, then it's range time. Even then, it's dry fire (repeat classroom) before loading with one bullet. As skill increases then so does the bullets loaded in the firearm.

Time spent on classroom prevents on range accidents.
