He told her not to mess with it. She deserved it. Great prank.

Ever think that is why it was done? To get her to understand, why guns are not toys?

I don't know.. I hope she learned a lesson. There are other methods, besides pranks, he could have used to convince her that guns are not toys. Scaring the heck out of her with the gun in her hand was not exactly the best way to accomplish that. I'm hoping the gun didn't have any ammo in the magazine or the chamber, but imagine what could have happened under different circumstances with hammer cocked.

I'm under the assumption it didn't have any ammo. If it was loaded, he needs to be beaten for scaring an inexperience handler while she was holding the gun.

If the gun was empty, and the intent was to teach someone to leave guns ALONE if they don't know what they're doing....then it was an outstanding job. If it was just to screw with someone......they're a genius.
