Responsible Gun Owners

Now that gets everyone to think and train for every threat scenario or at least more than looking at a nonmoving target 20 feet away

Wow :exclamation: When you see it in writing and say it out loud, that really goes against the grain. I too have served with some special operators and never, have I ever seen a draw from any position with a finger on the trigger!
Again, WOW :exclamation:

I like how you phrased it “Learn how to discuss (not argue )”. If we practice that here — and treat each other like family, then that could prepare us for when we do face anti 2A personas in the real world.

I too personally practice waiting until “fire”, before I touch a trigger. I would not agree to touch a trigger any moment sooner.

I don’t know what model firearm our colleague uses. but if he owns a revolver, double action/hammer not cocked, with a heavy trigger pull, maybe for him, he can rest his finger on it, perhaps soft pressure sideways, in order to acquire a faster and smoother trigger pull. I think we are all referring to “the first shot”. Because if we are conducting rapid repeat fire, then all of us are guilty of keeping our finger on the trigger.

But when we pause in between, I suspect most of us learn to “remove that finger and extend it straight”, myself included; That way does feel natural and safer for me as well.

I believe he said “will draw” then as the pistol comes up solidifies his grip ready to fire

Well it looks like more are thinking about the process of getting your firearm to a firing position I believe that is good and that means you will not be on YouTube saying I Shot My Self

I find I can have a respectful discussion with almost everyone here. IDK, it’s like we’re all old schoolers who have been through shyte and are interested more in learning about firearms than insults. The problem comes when newbies drop in with their preconceived notions that stick to a script.

I’ll talk to anyone that is respectful and will engage without their script doing their thinking for them.

Perfectly stated. Finger off trigger until you have made a conscious decision to shoot. Absolutely perfect

But even that we can still expect people who don’t agree :zipper_mouth_face:

The hope is, more we talk about it, more non educated people will understand it and change their thinking.

Hahaha love it but I don’t want to be the person charging her, I kid, I kid. Many years ago I was the punter on the high school football team. One of the things we did in practice was to have players charge me while I was punting. You get used to people coming at you and continuing with what you’re doing.
