Going downrange in a civilian training context, much less a new shooter is really dumb, and as a Training Counselor I'd say that was dangerous enough that the NRA Director of Training would want to talk to him and maybe save his life.

A mounted remote camera would be different.

The instructor is teaching bad habits to the newbe.. No part of the body should ever be past the firing line.

Having been a RSO, Firearms Instructor and Armorer for 13 years MY opinion if this is "just a photo op", the instructor personally cleared the weapons and the line is clear of any other shooters then I don't see any problems.

Other than that should not have happened and might have been the little head overruling the big head. If the line is hot there should be NOTHING downrange.

I would not allow something like that in one of my classes for new shooters. Especially as the new shooter now thinks this is acceptable practice around guns.

Heck even at advanced classes I've been to a safety angle off the muzzle is enforced and this photo seems to be inside the standard safety angle.

I agree that this would be acceptable in a "no live rounds present" "closed photo set", but it doesn't sound like that was the situation here.

Using a tripod or even very carefully using a "selfie stick" would be the safe way to take such photos.
