Rule 3

This is a decent political ad. But, at the end there, keep your booger-hook off the bang-switch. We don’t do that until we’re ready to shoot.

    Yeah, hey there, Forrest, keep your boogerhook off the bang switch.

  2. Huck Says:

    In the very last part, where he turns around, he does have his finger off the trigger.

  3. Paul Says:

    I did not see a trigger. Guard looked to be empty to me, although my eyes are getting weak these days. he did have his finger in the right place walking away.

    Seems to be a fire breather…..just not sure how much the GOP is really going to roll things back.

    Split scene, when he first picks up the rifle his finger IS inside the trigger guard. After the cut, his fingers are in the lever loop. I guess someone caught it and they re-shot part of the scene, since text covers the guard in the beginning they probably thought no one would notice. I survived Navy boot camp – I pay attention to detail. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I noticed the rule 3 violation when I first saw that ad. I’m guessing this guy learned to shoot before rule three got as much emphasis as it does today. Keeping you finger off the trigger was just part of a long list of rules, when I first learned gun safety in the early sixties. Getting rid of some of the redundant and extraneous rules has made it possible to really hammer the important ones into peoples heads, and make people develop safer habits.

    I hope someone sets him straight, but he sounds much better than most polititians.

    Oh, there’s a semi-pornographic screed from an actual cowboy going around (a thong, a metal ring and a saddlehorn are involved — how else could you describe it?), explaining how one always carried half-cock on an empty chamber on horseback, because the design of the lever forces putting the finger inside the guard to pull the rifle out of the scabbard. It’s a reasonable position, in the same way that people who actually carry SA revolvers do so on an empty chamber. But it certainly goes down hard with us postmodern NRA instructor types. Doesn’t it?

    I thought the NRA didn’t use the Four Rules, but rather promulgated their older Three Rules of Firearms Safety:

    1. Never climb a fence or a gate with a loaded firearm.

    2. Never ever load the firearm until right before you shoot the deer.

    3. Do not spill your gin & tonic on your Perazzi.

  8. Crawler Says:

    I’ll second comatus on this one.

    Carrying a lever action rifle equipped only with a “half cocked” safety system like a Winchester, who could see the hammer position of the rifle? I couldn’t. Much ado about nothing to me…

  9. Sean OH Says:

    Either way, I’d vote for him if I could. Glad to see someone willing to publicly admit “I like guns”.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
