Idiots With Guns #47

"Grandpa, tell us about you killing those Japs on Iwo Jima!"

It isn't Alzhiemer's disease, it's an obvious lack of training. Military experience and age may command respect, but they do not automatically bestow firearms competency. Welcome to the finger on trigger pointed in the wrong direction Hall of Shame Gramps!

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 always 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 until you are ready to shoot
4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it

I'm a newbie, no shame here. Newbie question: is it ever acceptable to use the middle finger as trigger finger?

Only if you do not have an index finger. If Gramps' gun were to fire, he would no doubt injure his hand.

is that a real gun? It looks to me either to be a toy of some type or a cigarette lighter.

There does not seem to be a slide, and that would make it, at best, a single shot "derringer" type thing.

is that a gun or a lighter that looks like a gun? It's really small...

I had not consider that it could be a cigarette lighter. It even has what appears to be a "port" near the muzzle. You fellows make a good point! I think you may be right. Maybe Grampa fooled me!
