A crop and a bit of background blur would. I think, be well worth trying.

(I join the previous poster in hoping the sidearm wasn't loaded.)

I like the idea here but I think it would have been better if there were more leading room towards the direction she is looking/aiming instead of behind her where there are guys who are obviously on a less than high alert status.

This was taken during a training exercise, so not, the weapon was NOT loaded...I hope ;)
Thanks for the suggestions guys, as soon as I get my laptop up and running again, I'll be tweaking the picture.

LOl no worries. The military is better trained than Law enforcement. I know, I put 12 years in. Also, during training excersizes, weapons are not loaded unless your on the gun range


Shooting photos never killed anyone,

No, Pirate4, it was definitely not loaded. No magazines were available for the the training.

bw! And I don't think her finger is on the trigger, it looks as if it is angled up along the frame. The rest of the points apply, I hate hearing people tell me the gun is unloaded, mine are always loaded...whether they are or not. :wink:

Would look better in my opinion if she were actually looking thru the sights, at that height no way could she see the front sight....all in the details :)

Ps thank her for her service if you would.

And the context with any gun is to always treat it as if it is loaded, period. Never point it at a person unless you plan on shooting them. Sorry, that is just the way we are trained, for a good reason.

I didn't disagree with this. :) I didn't say whether or not I found the posted rules to be valid. I merely stated that just because you make a banner with rules on it doesn't mean they are valid rules in every situation.

And context is always important. Especially when it involves a gun being pointed at you. :) But maybe this one was being pointed towards a camera on a tripod...who knows.
