    Keep your finger off the trigger...

    ...unless you are Chuck Norris.

    I taught a friend to shoot the other day. I drilled the concept of "keep your finger off the trigger". Well, we had dinner together last night. She was telling me that she was watching Walker: Texas Ranger the other night. During a chase scene, Walker was running with his finger on the trigger. She says, "Even I know you aren't supposed to do that." That is unless you are Chuck Norris. The gun would be afraid to AD.

    Television shows are not the place to get firearm instruction.
    And I don't think Chuck was doing anything wrong; his finger was on the trigger BUT he was not holding a firearm; it was a stage prop

    However I'd like to get one of these revolvers that can shoot 20 rds without reloading; maybe I would actually ditch the G-26

    Very good observation. Taking note of others mistakes is the best way to avoid making them yourself.

    The real problem is that all of a sudden everytime you walked into a convenience store there'd be 5-6 BGs intent on killing you, oh and they are also all armed with automatic weapons.

    Now, you've got her seeing gun-related things in films.

    Oooh, you're a baaaaaaad man.
