How do you hand gesture a pistol?

  • Pic A ( I like to have a smaller round but more in the mag )

  • Pic B ( I like to have a bigger round but less in the mag )

When you form your hand to make a pistol do you use one finger for a barrel or two?

Like so:

A.


OR

B.

I do it correctly, i.e. pic A. Of course, if I was referring to a derringer it would be pic B.

I've been known to do both. Sometimes both at the same time when I'm duel wielding. I guess I am an outcast and can't vote on the subject.

hmm looking at the pictures I was thinking A, but when I went to do it I flashed up B. Strange. When doing it style A seems weak

I guess A, but I think in reality I just mime the actual use of a pistol, with no finger pointing outwards. I just imagine a trigger and use my trigger finger like I would to actually fire a weapon.

A because that's how we played the politically incorrect game of cowboys growing up.
