I would hate to learn of the millions of gun owners how many have taken a single gun training course. Why was the gun loaded? Some pistols will fire when dropped and some are designed not to. How many owners know that about their weapons, very few I'm sure. Perhaps the most common accidental shooting comes from semi-autos with a single round in the chamber and the victim believes the gun is not loaded because the clip is out. Many years ago I dropped at Colt 38 caliber derringer while I was going up the basement stairs after target shooting. It landed on the stair in front of me and the round sailed by the left side of my head missing by only a couple inches. Why did it go off? I forgot to quarter * the hammer putting it in the safety position. One mistake, one time is all it takes. You can spend an eight hour training day learning a lot despite the idea you are convinced you are gun smart when in fact you may learn one small thing that may save your life someday.
He also cut Cris Carter because, "all he does is catch touchdown passes." I don't think anyone's claiming Buddy was a Rhode's Scholar. He may not have been an offensive or special teams guru, but the man sure knew defense.
