    Personal values, responsibility, and maturity

    Has any one read "Personal values, responsibility, and maturity" by Charles Ellis in the latest issue? Did anyone like it?

    Are you talking about the Nov. '05 issue? If you mean the December '05 issue, I haven't got it yet.

    Do you KNOW who the photographer for that picture was? Try Oleg Volk.

    I've read and heard people complain about pictures of people taken holding guns, some with their fingers on the triggers, and some with them off the trigger.

    What the heck difference does it make? IF the picture is to be a "life-like" one, maybe the photographer told them to do that, did it ever occur to anyone?

    I had this semi-famous pic taken back in August of 2003:

    It appeared in the Detroit free press along with the story of the Michigan Pink Pistols. FYI, a lot of the info they have is wrong. For one, I did not start the group, someone else did. I just took over when they had to drop out.

    But, you'll notice that my finger is not on the trigger. So WHAT??

    Ok, maybe I'm complaining too much. I'm in pain, my leg hurts worse, the infection is back, and I've got the nasty beginnings of a head cold. STILL, pictures get taken of people holding guns all the time. Many times with their finger on the trigger. Have you heard of any of the photographers getting shot? I haven't.

    Al,

    You're right. A picture represents 1/100th to 1/250th of a second in many cases. It is frozen in time for all to analyze. My AR-15 made the Washington Post in the hands of a lady who shot it at a Women in the Outdoors event. In that picture her finger was in the trigger and she had turned her head to look at me as I was the instructor for that event. I reminded her to remove her finger and she did. The bolt was also locked to the rear as I only give a first time shooter one round. The picture was posted on a large gun forum and the maelstorm that followed was humorous. I finally chimed into the thread and gave everyone the facts and it subsided.

    So for me I don't worry about seeing pictures with people and guns in various conditions. Finger on the trigger is ok so long as it is necessary to make the point, as the USCCA picture does. Now a model holding a pistol across her body in a pose doesn't need to have her finnger on the trigger IMHO. However, as we have seen, most do.

    Hope your leg gets better soon.

    -Scott-

    Just chipping in - seeing as I am ''sweeping'' everyone here with my avatar!

    I have had to defend that a time or two but remind folks of that useful deal called the self timer - were there any injury to be suffered in the process of getting the pic - I'd be out several hundred bucksworth of camera! Failing that (and this would presuppose the gun was loaded) - there might be a divot in the ground!

    For model poses, the classic ones - certainly on balance the straight finger does look better, if only because of setting an example.

    Lucky - which issue? Wasn't in Nov one and I can't believe we'll see a Dec issue yet awhile!

    As for the subject tho - it is close to my heart. Being old and ''old school'' I hold very tight to values in general. I grieve over the apparent disappearances of honor, respect, integrity etc.

    If I strike a deal with a handshake - it is my contract - but how often these days will we find such traditions? Not so often.

    It is these basic values which I consider make for better people and as far as CCW goes - would wish them to be intrinsic in all.
