Trigger Fingers: 1 is good, 2 is not-good

Somebody doesn't know much about guns.

Ian Rankin is not a bad writer. He's very big in the UK, I understand.

Well, they haven't had legal handguns there for ... what, a decade?

In the process, they've become even more out-of-touch with the principles of gun-handling than the American Main-Stream Media.

For those of you who are at a loss when presented with the question "What's Wrong With This Picture", the answer is -- if you need two fingers to pull the trigger, give it up. You won't hit anything anyway.

Oddly enough, this was the cover illustration for Rankin's 1993 book "Witch Hunt", about a female assassin. (This is actually the cover for the 2004 republished edition.)

Ah my, The Brits. I love 'em, but they don't have much of an IPSC program there any more, y'know.
