Note: Thius story is safe for work. But use caution
Perhaps it’s a sign that I take firearm safety rules so very very seriously, but I can’t be the only one who looked at the specific piece of hardware in this story and got a nauseous feeling in the pit of their gut because:
- the firearm in question was loaded
- the trigger has no trigger guard
- I don’t know for sure, but I can’t imagine with a hammer that small it’s a single-action piece, and
- a trigger pull that short ain’t much safety even if it’s double-action.
None of the above was intended to be a double-entendre, pinky swear, although on second read it occurs to me that not only is every word of it is exactly that, but tjhere is literally no way around it.k
