Gun range customer seen on video pointing gun at self, friend while taking selfie

By Keith Garvin

HOUSTON - Lesson number one when shooting at a gun range: Never, ever point a weapon at your friend's head -- or anyone's head for that matter.

Surveillance video from the Top Gun Range on Beverly Hill Street near Richmond and Fountain View, near The Galleria, shows a customer doing just that last Friday.

Very scary situation," recalls the range's general manager Kyle Harrison.

The man in the video -- in an effort to take a selfie -- starts off by breaking one of the cardinal rules of gun range safety. He's pointing his pistol toward the lane next to him -- rather than downrange. The lane next to him is filled with several people who were taking a safety class.

Then -- for a second selfie -- he decides to point the gun at his friend's head.
