A Lesson in Safe Shooting From Rick Perry

It is a positive one. See if you can spot it:

The big lesson: He is using double-hearing protection on that indoor range. He was wearing both earmuffs and earplugs. A lot of shooters don't use both. But they should, especially on indoor ranges.

Perry is doing other things right, of course. He is keeping the pistol pointed downrange.  When he stops shooting, the weapon is on the bench, pointed downrange, with the slide locked back.

I disagree with almost everything that Perry stands for.  But I don't fault his gun handling. Unlike, say, another former governor.

Rick Perry is the real deal when it comes to Texans. He was probably handling guns before he was ten years old and had many a lesson in proper gun handling punctuated by evenings standing up to eat. He's dumber than a box of rocks and has less sense than the horse he rides, but he ain't a wanna-be Texan like George W. Bush was. Texans elected him as Governor 'cause they like the fact he's just like them and the Governor doesn't do much in Texas and 'sides he has good hair, but he's about as qualified to be President as one of my cats. So it goes.
