Now class, who can stand and recite the Four Rules?

All guns are always loaded.
Never allow the muzzle to cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
Be sure of your target and what is beyond your target.

I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

Depends. For a gun that requires a heavy squeeze to discharge (e.g. Makarov PM), it's ok to rest your finger on the trigger.

Ah, he's OK... So this doesn't quite qualify for a Darwin award.

I loved how he just walked back into the room all nonchalant-like and told everyone what had happened. Kinda like "hey fellas, I just shot myself. Pass the beer nuts." ;D

I'm with Fong on this one. He shoulda given new meaning to 'shooting a load'. busting a nut. getting your gun off. getting a little head.

Makarov's a good gun, very Russian--sturdy and dependable. But whatever sort of gun you are shooting, it is a good idea to keep your finger out of the guard and off the trigger. Startle/flinch reactions to unexpected events can cause an accidental discharge even with a heavy trigger pull. I follow this rule, and what I usually shoot is a Smith revolver--it has a heavy trigger pull.

Furthermore, with the Makarov you have a lighter trigger if the hammer is back, and in the confusion of a crisis, you might not remember whether the hammer is cocked from firing, or whether you cocked it with your thumb a few moments ago, so it is good to get into the habit of using the digital safety--in other words, pull your finger out. (A finger is a digit.) :)

You know, this guy makes a very sound case for gun registration and control: people this careless should not be allowed near guns. He could have killed himself or someone else doing stupid things like this. What else is he using a loaded gun for? Hammering nails in the wall!?
