Would it be correct to assume your camera is on a tripod since your finger looks like it is on the trigger?

Nice pics and it looks like you have a little bit of money tied up in just the lights. What kind of watch is that?

My friend took the picture. I didn't mean to display my watch, as if it's something special... my wallet (a gift from my lovely VERY sexy girlfriend) and watch (classified) just happed to be there. I'll post more pictures as I take them. Any suggestions?

Yeah, chibigui, anytime you provide pictures here, people will be analyzing your adherence to the basic gun safety rules. No one likes when your finger is on the trigger.

But hey, good stuff.

oh my god guys, just relax. I'm not some little kid playing with daddy's gun, alright. I have been trained and am use to handleing firearms. IF I place my finger on the triger at all when I'm not target practacing or going to shoot someone, I first check the mag and the chamber to make sure it's not loaded and I don't even press the trigger and it's always pointed in a safe direction. In all my years of gun ownership, I've never once pressed the trigger on accent, not even close. In any other pictures, my finger WILL probably be on the trigger if it's an aiming pose I'm doing but please have comfort in knowing there are NO bullets in it, not because I'm assuming there isn't any, because I checked it just seconds prior. It's my gun that I have with me 24/7, I know what is in or not in it.

Oh yes, I'm going to send it in for an Armory Cote, I'm going to miss it greatly but I'll have to make due with my service XD while it's gone.

Here's a picture I took a while ago:

I know all about gun safty. I just did it for the picture. It was not loaded.
Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded gun...

The only truely safe gun is one with the action open and no mag in the magwell

other than that you took some great pics

We may dry fire, but we usually make sure it's not pointed in even the general direction of someone or something important. Even for my pic looking down the barrel, I made sure that my finger was off the trigger and that the camera was holding itself up.

Of course, maybe my feeling doesn't count, because I've had a negligent discharge. But then again, maybe that makes it worth more.

In the best-case scenario, what does putting your finger on the trigger gain you? In the worst-case scenario, what could putting your finger on the trigger cost you?

Like Overkill said, not in the direction of the person holding the camera.

Didn't mean to come off nagging though. I just figure it's always better to be safe and restate the rules than to not.

Just my opinion though...

NIce pics man and you really don't need to defend yourself everyone is gonna get on your case anyway.

Overkill I would say having had a negligent discharge makes your feeling count more. I have not had one yet but I will not say it will never happen to me.

GunSlinger is 100 percent right. Just look at his credentials they speak for themselfs.

Perhaps his ego wont let him admit hes wrong.

Good pictures by the way. :D

Now where have I heard that before. Shall I dig up the video of the "trained," and only "authorized" to handle a Glock DEA agent who shot himself in the leg with an unloaded gun if front of a class full of elementary stundents? Or has he had enough? :wink:
