Any tool can malfunction. However, the movies routinely show nailguns being fired this way, and a properly functioning nailgun will not fire without the safety depressed. That you know of one counterexample of a malfunctioning tool does not make this often-misused plot device any more realistic.
I enjoyed this episode. It wasn't as far fetched as most of them. The most unbelievable aspect of it for me was that there was nobody watching Jacob's relatives cabin.
My favorite bit was when the Blonde follower says to Ryan "You won't shoot me" and he promptly shoots her dead and then walks past her I honestly expected her to be wearing a vest or somehow survive the encounter in some far fetched manner. I'm liking the character of Ryan more and more each week.
