The Sgt. may still be an idiot but his finger is running up the side.

I initially believed the image to show his finger through the trigger guard, but following a closer inspection I believe that his finger is actually laying beside the trigger guard, and a lack of clarity in the image has created the false illusion that he has his finger through it instead.

Even if he is maintaining proper trigger discipline, however, the man depicted in the image nonetheless appears to be a "douche bag".

His finger isn't on the trigger. Zoom in on the picture and you can see the full shape of the trigger in front of his finger. At least you changed your previous statement that the weapon was loaded.

If you ever see someone carrying an Ar-15 on their shoulder into a coffee shop, get a latte, sit down and prop it against a bald-headed tattooed non-conformist.  And eat a scone while humming a war tune.  Take a video and share it with us.

You are absolutely correct. The lax firearm carrying laws of New Jersey are the cause of this occurrence; absolutely no blame should be applied to civilian disarmament advocates who willfully lie about firearms in a deliberate effort to incite irrational fear.

Or alternatively a fan of the amusingly goofy yet somewhat obscure Papa Schimmelhorn series of science fiction books mainly from the 60's and 70's by Reginald Bretnor: The Gnurrs Come From the Voodvork Out etc etc.  Silly as hell, basically parody, but good parody.  Papa's wife constantly threatens him with "der bumbershoot" being poked into various places for being an unrepentant old horndog (whilst his subsconscious genius invents stuff that invariably is crazy high tech - think about at the 'indistinguishable from magic' level - that saves the day for himself and others.  And gets him in bed with all sorts of hot young women ("pretty pussycats" in Schimellhorn-ese.)  Papa saves this world, other planets, and various magical weirdos on a regular basis thusly - despite the fact that other than his subconcious genius he's not really terribly bright at all.  Well worth reading if you're cool with that level of silliness in a series when it's well done.

Yeah, kinda a derail but a strangely relevant one I'll claim.  Who the hell gets to honestly write a plug for something like that in a thread about idiots mis-identifying weapons FFS?  Couldn't pass that chance up when it came!

No, but in Basic Training I was taught that the gun is always loaded until proven otherwise, especially when it has the appearance of such.

I was also taught that when I was 10 years old and attended the TWRA hunter safety class that was mandated for me to take to get a hunting license.

And was reenforced in every class I've ever taken in CCW and street survival.

But yes. Let's pretend that I'm trying to be the next FLYNAVY by pointing it out.

There's a story about a British major in WWII who could never remember the password when challenged by sentries; his solution was to always carry his umbrella with him, his reasoning being that "it would be quite obvious to anyone that the bloody fool carrying the umbrella could only be an Englishman."

And after you clear the gun, it's STILL loaded.  Firearm is always loaded as far as safety purposes - also learned from every sane gun safety source I've ever participated in/come across starting with my grandfather when I was 9.  So yeah, I don't give a damn either what the situation may be, you keep your finger away from the damn trigger and the firearm pointed in as safe a direction as can by had until you are ready to fire the damn thing.

No exceptions - ever - cause that's what gets people hurt and killed that one time out of a hundred when something goes wrong or you forgot something.

/you willing to bet the life of a friend, family member, or poor random SOB in the area around you that this isn't that one time when shiat will go wrong?  Is that EVER a good idea when you really think about it?  Any time you start in with any variation "Oh well in this situation it's ok to brush off safety rule X" you are just placing a bet that it won't be you that it happens to.  This'll be cold comfort at the funeral.

This. And the fact that none of that money is his. And the cigarette isn't lit, because if it were lit, he'd be in trouble with his CO, and he knows it. So he didn't light it. The whole picture screams "pussy d-bag."  And Mr. Testicle Thundercles thinks this is some sort of photo he wants to be associated with. Hahahaha.

There's probably a reason that Sgt. McAvoy is stuck in the quartermaster room guarding sheets of paper.


His impeccable haircut?
