A student at a Vegas CCW CCW class negligently/accidently discharged his firearm injuring another student on Sunday August 14th, 2022.

According to media reports, a student who was attending a CCW Course at Vegas CCW, located on Highland Drive in Las Vegas, was "disassembling" his Glock firearm in a classroom after the range portion of the class when the firearm he was handling was accidently/negligently discharged.

During the discharge the bullet hit the ground resulting in sharpnel hitting another student that was nearby.

Reports say the injuries to the student were non-life threatening and that the LVMPD's special investigations unit is currently investigating the incident.

Vegas CCW is owned by Nephi Khaliki (also known as Nephi Oliva) and the instructor teaching the class that day is reported to be Ronald West. West is listed as one of the companies instructors on Vegas CCW's website.

Mr. Khaliki released the following statement to Channel 8's I-Team (who first reported on the incident):

We have repeatedly requested LVMPD to approve CCW courses in languages more inclusive of the diversity in our city. The student who had the accidental discharge was having difficulty understanding the material because there are no approved courses in Spanish. We have also repeatedly requested the approved use of non-lethal training ammunition which would insure a completely safe learning environment. LVMPD forces all instructors to use live ammunition, even knowing the high volume of first-time shooters in CCW courses. Had both of these requests been granted, this would never have happened to these students or to the guest instructor."

- NEPHI KHALIKI

According to the report, Mr. Khaliki stated that while the incident was the result of a student error and that no live ammunition in the classrom was already a rule, they have implemented further procedural changes after some safety meetings following the incident.

NO live ammunition in the classroom! As a NRA Instructor, you are told this numerous time while doing your instructor training. Even the NRA's RSO (Range Safety Officer) course has it in red bold lettering on the bottom of the Power Point. Not long ago, a student was killed at a local range. We will never know the details on that one, I'm sure everyone involved will be sued, so no one is talking.
Gun training is, or can be, dangerous. ALWAYS remember the 3 basic safety rules. All three rules were broken!
How can LVMPD continue to list them as an approved CCW training course?
I doubt that LVMPD would deny a spanish language CCW training course. CCW instructors must have their course approved by LVMPD, maybe it is time for someone to write one up and get it approved...
BTW, a 6 year old child can "shoot" a SIRT/laser pistol. That does not show proficiency with an actual firearm. That would be like having somone play Flight Simulator at home and then handing them the keys to a real airplane and tell them to fly it around...
