In the army our instructor sayd that if a gun has been disassembled (no pin, springs, trigger mechanism) then looking down the barrel has uses. If you see anything after cleaning, the weapon goes to the armory for full inspection (damage to the inside of a barrel is BAD news). And looking from the breach end might keep you from seeing damage to the muzzle end so chek both ways.

The page image is actually a pretty poor example of "bad" gun safety. The girl in the image has the slide locked back AND has her finger off the trigger. Contrary to common belief, it's actually completely safe to look down the barrel of a gun in that instance, because the gun can't fire (even "accidentally") in that situation.

Looking down the barrel AFTER PERFORMING THOSE SAFETY STEPS is a standard part of firearm maintenance.

Would the high-ranking police fast-tracker causing a negligent discharge in Series 2 Ep 5 ("Catastrophisation") of Twenty Twelve count as You Fail Gun Safety Forever?

A shame no RL examples... the video of the FBI guy demonstrating gun safety to a class full of kids who shoots himself in the leg immediately after saying 'I'm the only person in the room capable of handling a gun safely' would fit so well...

Apparently it was growing too large. When a RL section starts outgrowing the other examples, it gets cut.

Although it's using archery - would Mia shooting arrows while the maids were still downrange in Princess Diaries 2 count?
