To show a woman that his gun was "Safe"
The last thing you do to prove a gun is safe is violate all the primary safety rules.
Everyone knows you don't drink and drive, and you don't drink and handle guns.
You Do Not point guns at things you do not want to destroy, and you always keep your finger off the trigger until you have made the decision to fire.
Lastly no matter how highly trained you are, bullets will not bounce off of you.
