    The best advice for your trigger finger...

    There's a video on YouTube - YouTube - cops that shouldent have guns that shows a cop accidentally (?) discharging her weapon. One of the comments made me laugh out loud:

    "Keep your booger hook off the bang switch!

    That is the best, most concise summary of this golden rule I've ever heard!

    "Keep your booger hook off the bang switch!"

    First time I heard that used was on the firing range here on base (Navy) by the RSO.........I plagiarize it every training session.........people remember it. When I took my daughters to the range last weekend, I asked them the four rules and that's the rule they remember first.

    When we need to stop the train (slow it down quickly) in an emergency, we grab the brake handle and swing it all the way to the right and "bang", the rail cars and locomotive go into emergency. While some RR's say dump it or blow it, or plug it, we say shoot it. Needless to say, every engineer trained by me learns the cardinal rule of keeping the booger hook ON the bang switch. This makes for a funny reminder if they should rest that hand elsewhere.
