A representative from Sig Sauer Academy insists that the firearms training facility that’s popular with law enforcement, military and civilians takes steps aimed at preventing accidental shootings like one last week.

Adam A. Painchaud, the academy’s vice president, said incidents are “extremely rare” and that the facility is prepared to handle them.

He was rushed to Portsmouth Regional Hospital with what police authorities described as non-life threatening injuries.
