However, I would imagine your hand would still have to be behind the camera.
Simple little setting called "timer". Can also be done, as previously mentioned, with mirrors, and there is always Photoshop. As mentioned above, could be dummy rounds/reloaded.
What exactly is wrong with this picture? Does this promote "unsafe" gun handling?
I am all for being an ambassador concerning firearm ownership and usage, but really does this picture go against this, or is it just overreaction based in a bit of "too much pcness?"
One could argue that it is a good "safety reminder" of what lies within that "business end".
