Please again ! would people please open your mind and read what is being written .
If a rifle is NOT in your hands, or in a controlled holster, then technically the muzzle is not being controlled.
two if you rethink the post the gun in a holster the trigger is covered by the holster,
then the trigger can not get pulled into discharging i believe that is what mike was trying to get across......
True, but keep in mind when you talk about muzzle control, it can be easily misconstued as "muzzle control due to recoil".
As far as the the trigger guard issue, like Phoenixphire pointed out, rifles have a "selector switch" making them somewhat safer than certain handguns.
I see it both ways. It's just hard to understand if people are being sarcastic on the internet, and Mike has not publicly clarified any of this (maybe he has PMed some people though).
