Is there a term in quick-draw where the hammer is down, trigger is pulled and held and hammer released with the thumb? This is what I feel happened in the Baldwin incident.
The term is slipshooting and it is well known in history. Museum guns with the trigger tied back or taken out, hammer spurs modified to reach easier with the thumb.

Best read the rules of any fast draw or quick draw organization, it might not be allowed. (Fast Draw and Quick Draw did not used to be the same thing. Blanks vs bullets. I think just wax bullets now.)

And that is just the Baldwin Legend TODAY. He will have new lies tomorrow or at latest by Monday.
