Oh, she must be married to some big ugly fellow and have a mess of kids. I will back away slowly then.

Stay awake another five minutes, you'll see something even more scary.

She didn't have the hammer down on an empty chamber prior to cocking that hog leg.

Nope, just a CAS shooter and experienced in making sure that the hammer is down on an empty chamber for safety. SASS rules mandate this even for single action revolvers with transfer bars, such as the Rugers, which can be carried safely with six, but this is critical with the revolver in the picture, since it has a hammer mounted firing pin.

That rules wasn't always followed in combat. Also, some revolvers have notches for safe carry: the firing pin rests between chambers.

Rule 3: Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

I heartily agree with this rule, and appreciate same when taking photos. But in a photo like this, it looks like the sights are on the target ... so why not finger on the trigger?
