    I hate it when people don't grip the forearm properly.

    Tron, it is bad form to grip the forearm, it should just rest lightly in the hand.

    I was shooting with a Dr. I knew and he had a very pretty young lady with him. I told another friend who was with me that, "Doc's daughter is a pretty good shooter". He told me that the pretty young thing was Doc's new wife. Glad I didn't say anything to him.

    Lighten up P3AT, it's a photo op. If they are really shooting, think of the person taking the picture!

    All safety rules should be practiced even in a photo op.

    Great photo. Typical of this forum for the grumpy old trapshooters to find something bad to say about just about anything. Mark

    They are not shooting, It's only a gun fit session!

    Since she or the instructor don't have hearing and eye protection, I wonder if she also rest the gun on her toe between shots??

    My guess, of course!!!. If she's going to take the chance of losing her sight and hearing, she might as well blow off a few toes, too.

    That would be a shame. A blind, deaf, crippled but pretty girl!!

    Resting the muzzle of an open O/U on your toe is safe for the shooter and squad mates. I hate shooting on a squad where a shooter rests the broken O/U on his shoulder and swings the muzzle or butstock around smacking his fellow shooters in the face.

    I know it is an acceted practice to rest an open gun on a toe (except in SCTP).

    I was just being a smartass!

    I am guessing because I don't know for sure, but I bet she pops the shells out on the ground also ... This practice as we all know limits the clubs that you can shoot at for the most part but not enough to matter ... Beautiful young lady, Beauty and the Beast is right ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Maurice, wrong. If you grab your shotgun by the forearm and hold it out at arms length, that's the amount of grip you should have on your forearm when mounted. You have more control and less felt recoil. You can not control the gun properly with it just resting delicately on your hand. Also, it looks like she's likely cross eye dominant, being that she's squinting the wrong eye.

    So there.

    Tron, you are clueless, You do not control your gun movement with your hands, the upper body including hands, arms and gun should move as one unit, you do not push the gun with your hands. Obviously you have never been taught to shoot properly.
