    You can usually tell what hollywood star actually has his own guns in real life

    When I watch a movie that has an actor handling or using guns, I watch for their trigger finger.

    Is it on the trigger as they're prowling around? Or is it indexed along the side of the gun for safety, ready to access the trigger but not on it as an accident waiting to happen?

    Once the finger is on the trigger, is it wrapped as far as possible around to the other side, like the hand is trying to give the gun a bear-hug?

    Those actors who grip the gun funny like that, with the trigger finger curling way around the trigger, or the ones who choke-up on the back of the grip so that the web of their hand is in the way of the slide (or the hammer in the case of a revolver) crack me up.

    You just KNOW that they've never used a gun in their lives, they hate guns, they don't know squat about them, and they probably made some, "Ewww!" comment when they had to take the movie prop gun in their hands.

    My boring old comment on actors and guns is ......... if they are anti gun then do NOT take parts in movies where a gun is required!! That would be appropriate.

    But no ... $$$$ matter much more, and I doubt they feel any shame or guilt as they apply their double standards in public. With the very outspoken ones it is pure hipocricy.

    As for whether actors do know anything about guns - true enough, usually the 'signs' are there in either direction - plus in some cases even the fluency with which they operate the mechanics can show familiarity beyond the stage, or not!.

    i've actually never paid attention to how the actors handle the gun. I always paid attention to what gun was being used.

    I'll have to pay closer attention when I see the next action movie.

    But have you ever noticed how they will have some skinny babe handling a Desert Eagle .50 or some other monster she can hardly pick up. It looks so silly and out of place to me.

    Best trigger-pull and gun handling I've ever seen is by the guy who hosts "Futureweapons" on Discovery... course he's an ex-SEAL and its not Hollywood.

    An excellent gun handler (and owner) is Tom Selleck.

    Tom Selleck is actualy a BIG gun endorser. He's made 3 made for TV movies where he portrays Chief of police Jesse Stone in a fictional small Massachusets town called "Paradise." In one of the movies (Night Passage) he is on the range with a young officer and he actually teaches the kid about keeping his finger off of the trigger until the decision has been made to fire.

    If you have never seen these movies, you are missing out! 3 of the best movies I have ever seen! They are Night Passage, Death In Paradise and Stone Cold. They are all based on the novels by Robert B. Parker.

    I never read a book cover to cover in my entire life until I saw Stone Cold - now I can't wait for his new books to come out! I have read all of the Jesse Stone novels and a few of the Spenser and Sunny Randall ones too...I AM HOOKED!

    Sorry for the hi-jack!

    Just happened to see a smidgeon of what my wife was watching on ''Starz'' earlier and there's this guy - detective I suppose - wearing what appears to be a quite comfortable sho rig.

    But ..... on left is a horizontal snub - and on right MAG pouches!!! They sure were not speedloader pouches!
