The Devil makes me do it...

You know how in a movie or on TV you will see a character with a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other? I often run into that situation here at the field. Seems I had more than the usual number of guns with no safety last weekend (Why System X would release a marker with no safety is a topic for another rant).

I feel bad having to tell a guy he can't use his own gun because it's missing the safety. I want to tell him to go use the gun but just keep his bloody finger off the trigger and be careful. But I can't.

It's the same with the old Spyder Special Edition. For some unknown reason Kingman decided to ship it without a trigger guard. Such a simple necessity. You gotta have one.

When an odd color fill shows up at my Field Paint Only field and I find the culprit I really don't want to tell him he has to dump it out. But I do.

And when someone has already fired 40 rounds trying to chrono his gun I still make him shoot again even though he's only 1 foot per second over the limit.

I'm not really mean and grumpy. I have a tough couple of bosses.

Kingman did the no trigger guard thing just before ASTM rules came out that trigger guards were required. The old VM-68 brush guard also did not meet the standards for trigger guards.

I have never talked about gun safeties when giving safety lectures. I would prefer that they were not on the guns. Too many players think their gun is safe with out the barrel sock because "I put the safety on" I don't want the player confused and only remembering the trigger safety when the barrel sock is what counts.
