    Well, we know why it's a ghost town. Everyone died off from sloppy gun handling.:D

    Always a bad thing when you go play dress up and then discover that the photo shows in a less than flattering light.:banghead:

    Well, if you want to be historically accurate.... the four rules didn't exist in the wild west. :scrutiny:

    The number one rule of safe gun handling is HUMILITY and ADMITING when you are wrong. Hopefully this guy will do so and adopt the right attitude.

    BTW, is that a Chinese double barrel shotgun you think?

    Looks just like the ones I've seen at gunshows and in the Century Arms catalogs.

    Well, to be historically accurate....Ashville, NC was NEVER the Wild West. :neener:

    It was during the 17th century. :neener:

    But then, double barrel breach loading shotguns didn't exist then, either.

    There are two types of gun guys: The ones that know and live by the safety rules and the ones that don't.

    How can we make up for the latter?

    well,
    no excuse for sloppiness...but do be aware the ghost town is certainly and bang and shoot em up tourist attraction where people get swept....and....well.....shot all the time, from rooftops, trains, and other places like windows.

    I saw this today too....heh....nice to have another THR'r around.

    Good luck to the ghost town. So many local people struggle with the rise in taxes and taste of permanent tourists who are taking over our mountains, cutting the trees, clearning the forest, building mansions and private gated golf courses. The housing bust does nothing bad for those of us up in the hills

    Maybe he so scared of ghosts that he always has his finger on the trigger ready to engage at any time. It is a ghost town right?

    Okay that was stupid, but so is taking a picture for a newspaper with your finger on the trigger while the shotgun rests on your shoulder.

    "Fingers should not be on the triggers of guns used in movies and TV shows because you never know whether they are loaded or not." :rolleyes:

    At least the hammers are down. I'm pretty sure that historically, in the old west, you'd always keep your finger on the trigger. Rather than only placing your finger on the trigger when ready to fire, you would only cock the hammer when ready to fire.
