Idiots with Guns #2

Vote for LauraI suppose Laura can only hope that her other supporters are more intelligent. This young man may soon become even more open minded if he is not more attentive to his muzzle direction and choice of pistol.

The purpose of "Idiots with Guns" is not to glorify those who made incredibly bad decisions on film, but to teach others proper gun safety. Read Jeff Cooper's 4 Rules in my sidebar. There has never been a negligent discharge that harmed anyone while the 4 Rules were being followed. In fact, there have never been any negligent discharges at all while the 4 Rules were being followed. Because of this, wise old gunnies simply follow Jeff Cooper's 4 Rules. They cast them in stone and accept no excuses for their behavior. You never hear on the news that these old gunnies encountered a gun that "just went off".

Over the years we have seen many 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 ways they are listed, in personal albums. If you have archived any of these type photos, feel free to send them in to bayouroversATjamDOTrrDOTcom

Some might say that the gun pictured this week is a 1911 with the hammer down. Granted. C&S makes a nifty little kit to sidetrack that argument if it were installed in this pistol. Besides, it's a matter of acceptable behavior, not conditional behavior. Monkey sees, monkey does. The next monkey might own a Glock. Argue with Cooper's wisdom if you must.

Is it me, or does that thing look like a toy?

It definitely does not look like a toy to me. The custom hammer and extended beavertail grip safety make that theory unlikely IMHO. Also - any gun, toy or otherwise, when held by an idiot should not be considered to be a toy.

I'll toss in my two pesos.....
I do not believe it is a toy. Not many people carry toy guns in a shoulder holster. The hammer is distinctive. i believe it is a Infinity hammer by Strayer Voight. That leads me to believe the pistol is real. The hammer being down is already noted. For me, that is not an excuse, nor would a toy gun be an excuse.
