It looks like it needs a trip to the range.

Why not be a nice guy and do that?

Uhhh, get your finger of the trigger is my opinion.

Charter is OK. Quality and finish not as good as a S&W, but is not an RG or Clerke.

There are untold numbers of ND's that happen with unloaded guns. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

Or... learn by experience. Personally, I prefer to learn from those who have been there and done that.

ScottA 01-22-2013 01:49 AM

I bet you dollars to donuts, that it will go bang every time you pull the trigger... assuming ammo.

I'm not impressed. I've had a gun since I was seven. That's 21 years, and I'm a baby compared to many, in both age and gun ownership experience. If you think you're smarter and better than everyone else, fine. I just hope no one gets hurt. No one is immune. Make a bad habit with an unloaded gun, that habit can very easily transfer to the same gun while loaded.

No one is trying to insult your intelligence, but ask yourself one very simple and easy question: Do you think the "golden rules" of gun safety were written by a A. scholar with no gun experience, B. a shooter with tons of experience, or C. compiled from the worldwide shooting community as a whole, with untold hundreds or even thousands of years worth of cumulative experience with firearms? (not so subtle hint: the answer is C.)

You may go your entire life with your finger on the trigger of even a loaded gun and never have an ND. But...

Jus saying i dont think im a know it all but i dont carry the habit over to a loaded one i always check the chamber/cylender before playing with them or tearing them apart i knew it was unloadedand i originally took that picture to send to a freind to somewhat show the undercover hammer

Garadex 01-22-2013 04:12 AM

Please stay far away from me if you have a gun in your hand. I hope you don't hit anyone when you have an ND.

Vikingdad 01-22-2013 04:28 AM

iftown, Around here we pay a very high level of attention to safety and if we see a pic of something we would not advise a new shooter do, we will point it out. It is not meant to say anything other than you shouldn't do that. Just this past weekend there were several Negligent Discharges (there is no such thing as an "accidental" discharge- they are all due to negligence) at gun shows and rallies all over the country. Every one of those people knew for certain the guns they were handling were unloaded.

How do I know? I am 47 years old. I had an ND with a gun that I had just that moment, when I pulled it out of my safe, checked it to make sure it was unloaded and did not have a magazine inserted. I handed it to my buddy and told him to try the trigger. He shot a hole through my bedroom wall.

It happens. Not to everyone, but it does happen even to people like me who are safety Nazis.

Keep your booger hook off the bang switch at all times unless you are firing at a target. If you are taking a picture to post on a pro-gun site like this, keep your finger off the trigger. We all understand. And if you don't, we will call it to your attention.

As to the gun, is that a double-action only with an exposed hammer? Hmm. Can't say I would go for that. In a DA-only gun I want an internal hammer. Having it exposed sort of defeats one of the purposes of DA-only, doesn't it?

Let us know how it shoots.

Famous last words.

trip286 01-22-2013 12:29 PM

Last thing I'll say on it. I was witness to the aftermath of an unintentional suicide/Darwin award. Cop neighbor, his sister was going through a divorce and had moved in a couple weeks prior. She was constantly nagging him to get rid of his guns. I think he got pissed off and got an attitude...
One day, he was sitting at his kitchen table cleaning his duty sidearm, when his sister walked in and said something along the lines of "I wish you would just put that thing away". He says, "it's not loaded, see?" And put it to his head and pulled the trigger.

Now, this guy was a veteran of the local PD. I'm not sure how long, but he'd been around quite a while. A cop since I was a kid, and I'm almost 30. He was college educated with at least a bachelor's, although I can't remember what field.

My point is, he wasn't a random dumb ass. And he blew his brains all over the kitchen with an unloaded gun. A gun he'd carried for years. I was called over to help, which consisted of calling 911 to tell them to send a deputy and a coroner. And now his son, just a year or two younger than me, is unhinged all the time.

None of us are talking out our asses.

The pic is disturbing non the less. Also, why not ask the opinions of the people before buying the firearm?

I think he gets the point.

Ok. He got the point. Keep your finger off the trigger.
