7. Bouncing/Ricocheting Bullets: Instructor discussion 
In shooting, the path a bullet travels can not be controlled. Bullets will bounce and ricochet after striking an object, including a person. Bouncing bullets can result therefore in the injury or death of an innocent person, even one who is far away. The potential for injury from a bouncing bullet requires you to be aware of this possibility in a shooting. 
In addition to shooting only if you are justified, you may want to order people to fall on the floor or take cover before shooting. 

D. Grip

The proper grip is very important. If the firearm is not gripped properly, the shot will not be accurate. The firearm cannot be gripped correctly unless it fits the shooter's hand. The proper shooting handgrip places the firearm in the webbing
