    I still do not see a gun pointed ant her head. Close does not equal pointed at.

    At an "angle" to her forehead. See bold text.

    Aimed at an angle to her forehead...

    I just see a model doing her job.

    The worst part is the ad. I have no idea what the heck is going on in that. What does an eye have to do with guns?

    At her head, see the title.

    Using a false title to attract readers then correcting it in the text later on is the tactic of the tabloid journalist. It is dishonest. If the title says I will see a picture of a woman pointing a gun at her forehead am I wrong to expect just that?

    I assure you it was NOT an intentional dishonest tactic to attract readers. Never entered my mind.

    Now, to the point of my post...do you see anything wrong with her gun handling and having the gun so close to her forehead? Is this a position you see as prudent and could recommend to friends and family?

    I would not teach anyone to do that. Then again I do plenty of things I would not teach others. I have no problem with how this person in the picture is handling the weapon. Unless that is they are portraying it as a safe method of gun handling.
    Instead of railing about her doing something we consider unsafe why not use it as a teaching tool to show others examples of unsafe practices? We used to be taught that just because you see another person doing something doesn't mean that its a good idea to do it yourself.

    What she is doing is much less dangerous than someone practicing fast draw with a handgun. And fast draw is much less dangerous than walking a tightrope over Niagara falls. People need to learn that what another person does is not necessarily safe for others to do without proper training or safeguards. And even with training it may be risky.
