Idiots With Guns #31

Let there be no doubt. Those are hollowpoints.
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

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

Not sure, but doesn't it look like the upper left chamber is empty? As in, maybe the weapon was being carried hammer down on an empty chamber until it got cocked, meaning there's one in the pipe at this moment? Also implying that the hammer is back?

I haven't shot a revolver in years so I could be wrong on this one.

It would all depend on the revolver........A Smith, no, a Colt, yes. I'm still trying to figure out the type of revolver, but I don't think it's S&W.

not to flame, but why is it unsafe to point a loaded gun at a camera with a timer? if the camera is down range from anything and far enough away?

Maybe I'm just being a "Jerk" about it.

But, what if you are "willing to destroy" a camera to get a shot?

"They hate the cameras, stay away from the cameras!" :D

As to the type of revolver, could it be a colt with a sight rib like a python?

Then would you not also be willing to destroy the image itself? If that were the case, then why bother?

Rather than try to re-explain, I will simply direct you to this post that adresses that issue.
