Idiots with Guns #1

Stupid SoldierI'm going to start a new theme called Idiots with Guns. There seems to be a need for many people to advertise their ignorance of firearms by taking up a handgun, and pointing it at a camera with their finger on the trigger. Once a week, we will post another idiot who imortalized the reason they should not be allowed to touch a firearm.
To start off the festivities, I present one of the US Army's finest. Here is proof that either the Army does not train it's soldiers in handgun use, or they recruit idiots to stupid to retain their training. Buford's cup & saucer grip helps demonstrate his level of competency as well as holding a semi-auto handgun so close to his spectacles. His finger on the trigger is what earned him the title of Idiot with a Gun #1 though. Thank you Buford, you may now take your finger off the trigger, put the pistol down and step away.

The purpose of Idiots with Guns is not to humiliate, but to educate. Over the years we have seen photos of people who, upon picking up a gun, just cannot resist pointing it at something they should not, with their finger on the trigger. This is usually the camera, another person, or themselves. These photos are often difficult to google up, because of the pages they are shown on. If you have archived any of these photos, feel free to send them in to bayouroversATjamDOTrrDOTcom

Perhaps there was no one behind the camera?
I know when I've taken a picture like that, the only thing behind the camera was the table, and floor.

Lets Review...........
The Four Rules
1. All firearms are loaded
2. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger unless your sights are on the target
4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it

Maybe he really *was* shooting at the camera.

In which case no rules were broken.

I've still gotta ding him some points for the terrible 'cup-under' grip, holding the gun close enough that the slide would break his glasses, and the fact that he looks like a 14 year-old boy.

And what's that on his right-hand ring finger? A decoder ring?

Well you corrected "it's" to "their," and extra points for using their correctly. However "to stupid" should still be "toO stupid" (notice the second o.) The pro-gun crowd gets enough flack for being "stupid rednecks," correct grammar is a good way to avoid such accusations.

Apparently your mother taught you no manners. Keep it up.
I would rather have poor grammar and good manners than good grammar and poor manners. You are an ass.
