HOUSTON (KTRK) – Two men were banned for life from a gun range for trying to take a dangerous selfie.

The gun range customer held a gun to his friend's head, hoping to get a picture for social media.

The gun range not only banned those men for life - but they said they hope their stupidity will be a lesson to others.  

Top Gun Range manager Kyle Harrison said it is a cringe-worthy moment when he points the gun at his friend's head for another picture.

In the surveillance video, you can see the safety officer quickly intervening.

"He reacted perfectly.  He was quick,” Harrison said.  “He was professional he was very direct. He disarmed the gentleman, cleared the weapon and evacuated the range."

Harrison said that while the gun was not loaded, this is everything you shouldn't do when it comes to firearm safety and that's why they're sharing the video."

He said you should never point a gun at anything you don't want to destroy.  

While the range is there for practice, customers are expected to do it safely.  Harrison said they violated the rules, and they won’t be allowed back. 

“So after they had the incident we took them to the lobby,” Harrison said.  “We recapped what rules they broke in our range and then we got their stuff for them and we banned them for life."
