Idiots With Guns #34

Be careful who you take to the range. Teach proper gun handling at home prior to the novice's first range trip. They might be a mild mannered liberal elementary school teacher, but without a little prior education before arriving at the range, they may become a full blown idiot with a gun.

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

You know what bothers me the most about the last two "Idiots with Guns" posts you've put up?

It's that they happened at the range, where presumably there were experienced shooters around who could have stepped in and gently educated the new folks about firearms safety.

What I want to know is, what in the world has happened to gunowner culture, that so many are willing to let the uneducated and the dangerous get away from us without a single word?

Here's an idiot with a gun and a badge. NOPD Chief Riley says he'll confiscate guns if another disater strikes. Here we go again...

Vertical grip grooves on the M1911, and only on the rear of the slide... and a military style hammer, dark finish, not blued, and what appear to be walnut grips.

I'm guessing a Springfield Mil-Spec or GI M1911A1. Unless it's a carefully refinished government surplus pistol.

Too bad Ms. Dippy Trigger Finger doesn't appreciate what she's holding.
