    I thought you kept your flippin' finger out of the trigger guard unless you're pointin' downrange? Silly, outmoded safety fundamentals. I don't think I'll start ignoring them at this late date.

    and qualified?
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    You're emailing your hands? Or did you mean your fingers?

    I can see this being an issue when it the "freak out" mode...when your brain is processing information at light speed and your reflexs just aren't keeping up.

    When that adrenaline gets switched on and you start losing fine motor skills, this just does not seem like a great idea to me...

    Is this really from someone we should recognize? Should we respect his expertise in the matter? No thanks, I think I'll just keep my finger completely away from the trigger while holstering.

    How do you reholster?
    I normally "palm" my pistol getting the barrel started then use the heel ofi my hand to push it in . Is there a "right way" to do it vs any way that doesn't pose a safety hazard.

    - The right way to do it is to keep your finger off the trigger. However, the most important part is taking your time holstering. There are no awards for speed holstering.

    That's the big problem. I think some people buy into the idea of "tactical holstering," and see it as something that must be done as quickly as possible. Save that speed for the draw stroke (but only when you can do it quickly and safely, not just quickly). Holstering can and should be done as a deliberate, sometimes even slow action, making sure all of the safety rules are being met.

    Yup, they took it down, but in a cowardly fashion, not even explaining why the link no longer works. At least common sense prevailed. Good work, everyone who contacted them.
