In the first picture, you'd think he'd cock the hammer first.

And the lady in the second picture, I hope that's a .22!

Yep, the girl may need a nose job after she shoots it!

So, if muzzles are .22 on the first pictures and based on the second picture they are aiming somewhere in the distance, what kind of bad guys are they trying to shoot? Seagulls?

This is a classic drive-by post and may very likely get closed because of that.

But very cool pictures!

If they made a top 10 list of coolest doods ever, McQueen would be right up at the top & battling for 1st place.

Hard to believe that he's been gone over 30 years, now.
And still as popular as ever.

I'd argue that he's more popular than ever. Dying will sometimes do that.

Funny picture. A drive-by is a term our Moderators use, and it's against the rules here on this forum. This is a fun thread, but it's life span is short, and shortening by the moment.

Steve McQueen liked guns, btw! (that'll keep it alive another 20 seconds! )

I don't care what she looks like, I don't think I have ever seen a more uncomfortable looking shooting position in my life.

But you see, in that first picture he has the bad guy fooled coz he has the hammer cocked on the bottom gun and will release the hammer with his unseen thumb

In the first picture, where he's holding two guns, it looks like the trigger is back as if he just fired a shot. No Hollywood smoke from the barrel though.

It might have been a safety move, where he kept the trigger back and hammer down on a fired casing after firing a round, so the photographer would be safe (enough) taking the picture...or it could be empty.
