Hoplophobes are right about my obsession with guns...while I have it in my hand. If something happens that doesn't involve the gun and shooting at a target, my finger leaves the trigger guard and the gun is probably laid down on the table in front of me, even if it's an "emergency" like a hot case going down my shirt.

I've taught people to shoot and 3/4 times, that first time at the range they will go to talk to someone behind them and turn the gun in their hands and point it at them at the same time. Fortunately I've learned to anticipate this and stop 'em before their arms follow their eyes. ^_^

I'm going to need to see a pic of the woman with and without her blouse in order to make a determination.

Mayhem of the Black Underclass: I would think that it was an involuntary response. She contracted a whole series of muscles and she just happened to have her finger on the trigger.

Doesn't matter, it's not that difficult to control. All you have to do is get yourself in a mindset of not doing anything until the gun is safe. If that means you get burned, well, you get burned.

BarkingUnicorn: I had no idea that hot brass burns were an inherent part of shooting.  And you guys call that fun. Wow.

It's an inherent risk, not something that will happen (though the more you shoot, espescially around other people, the probability approaches 1), and that part isn't fun at all. However, I've received much worse injuries doing stuff that is much less fun, so it's a risk I'll take.

This is why I stick with revolvers.  Plus, they look cooler.

Muta: Gun owners are stupid. Wanting a gun should disqualify a person from owning a gun.

I live with my mom. That shows no effort at all. You can do better.

syrynxx: This wouldn't have happened with sensible magazine size limits in place.

Or, if she had put down the gun and THEN went fishing for brass.

/ this is also why you teach your girlfriend/wife about muzzle control
