Default What is up with the pics

Ok - I apologize for another newbie question. So i see a lot of gun pics with a pen or some other stick like thin in the trigger. What is that? It doesn't seem like it would prevent the trigger from being pulled. Thanks!

Guys are leaning their firearm to one side or the other using these objects. It simply makes for a much better photo than laying it flat on a surface and snapping the shot...

Like werminator said,just for photo purposes. It just props the gun up so you can get a better photo

I personally like the ones that use a shotgun shell myself!

Gotcha - I didn't think it was that simple. One day I hopefully won't have so many dumb questions

There are many quotes attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius. We've all heard the old "Confucius once say....." lines. Many are jokes. But he was real, and some of his sayings communicate great wisdom. A teacher I had in school had one of his quotes on the wall......"“The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”
