Bad Gun Handling – Form

The good news is that she looks like she might be having fun?

The bad news is that she’s got really bad form and could hurt herself or someone else if a more experienced shooter doesn’t help her.

She’s firing a 12G with her shoulders behind her hips and her center of gravity way too far back. If that weapon has more than one shell in it, she’s at risk of falling, maybe racking that weapon with the trigger down, which could result in a slam fire.

If your going to hand a weapon to a shooter, make sure they can handle it. Build them up to weapons with more kick – and only give them a single round at a time until you are sure they can safely handle any weapon you give them.
