  3. It's easy, just take into consideration that he's a World Class, Self-entitled,I've got a VERY Wealthy Casino Executive Daddy, Douchbag !

    Lots of folks I've talked to in the shooting community here around Vegas seem to think there's more to the story than is portrayed in the well produced NRA Poster Boy commercial.
    NO ONE is saying it was a bad shoot, but popular opinion is that the "story" might be too smooth to be the way it REALLY went down.

    Just My opinion though . . . YMMV !

    Lots of speculation. In the absence of actual facts, might as well speculate that it was an alien invasion from Mars.

    Has anyone put money on "the guy who was shot was tweaking on meth and though Baldwin was a ham sandwich?"

    Peace favor your sword,

    Beautiful woman. The fact that she can use a firearm effectively in self defense makes her even more attractive to me.

  11. I was thinking that too. Finger off the trigger until your firearm sights are on the target and you are ready to shoot. That was my training at least.

    So how DO you keyboard commandos do a function check, then?

    Holy crap, one gets sick of the “Hey, yer tuchin’ the gun in the wrong place!” comments on a video where they’ve cleared the gun four times, demonstrated that the fake round used was in fact a fake, and there is no live ammo within 75 feet of the gun.

    It’s a freaking photo shoot, people. I’m sure 12 people checked the gun for clear.

    But it sets a bad sample, what about the kids....

    With the muzzle pointed at the ground and in a safe direction, like one should. Now take your pot meet kettle ass on down the road, I think you're missing your daily teacher's lounge zoom meeting.

    Talk about adding too much to it.

    "Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire."

    Covers all that extra chit you added, because if you have to be told you're not ready to shoot until your sights are lined up, you shouldn't be handling a firearm.

    Point was, touching the trigger isn’t an automatic fail.

    And school is out, baby!

    Same here. Kids turned in all their books and laptops last week.

  18. I, too find it somewhat (more than mildly but not as much as wildly) amusing when a utoob jockey feels its necessary to enthusiastically gesticulate the slide to demonstrate that the weapon is really, really, truly, and absolutely, clear. Frankly, I don't care. Shoot yourself in the foot or the neighbor upstairs, both will be passed off nonchalantly by me. Heck, you'll probably get more views if the thing discharges. And when someone is affronted by a picture of a professional team shooter that has her finger on the trigger (or in the apparent vernacular of the day "booger hooking the bang switch") and feels the need to promulgate a reaction can we not easily surmise that it is merely a photo shoot and in all likelihood the weapon has been cleared probably multiple times? Most certainly, and lastly, by her?

    Should we expect critical commentary regarding the fact that she also lacks appropriate eye and hearing protection?

    But that's just me.
