To be honest, there are a lot of mishaps that are actually the result of someone who is more experienced and knowledgeable in the evolution. This is particularly true with firearms. Generally speaking most experienced people are professional enough not to do stupid ****, but every once in a while you get a few that just completely blows my mind. Hell I even get annoyed when I get flagged by someone holding a fake gun in a training environment. Of course in a class room setting it's kind of expected that you'll get flagged, but it's still encouraged to keep it to a minimum.
