    Trigger discipline in China......

    So, I'm sitting here in Shanghai Airport and a bunch of military carrying QBZ 95 rifles walk by. ALL of them had their fingers wrapped firmly around the triggers. That's a disconcerting sight...I would have taken a picture, but may not have lived to talk about it.

    Most people don't understand that a huge swath of the world don't practice safety morning, noon, and night.

    There's a chance that they're both untrained and not issued cartridges.
    But I wouldn't bet on it -- and that's probably the point.

    There were plenty of loaded mags on their belts, and what looked like one in the rifle, but, maybe keeping the rest of us guessing is the point.

    True enough. Of course, that doesn't take away from the fact that having a gun pointed in your general direction, loaded, with finger on trigger is unnerving...

    No big deal, if ERT's are any indication part of their "training" is pointing the muzzle of your gun directly at the back of the skull of the person in front of you.
    There is a madness to my method!

    Bah. Over reaction. They’ve got the safety on...

    "trigger" discipline is a recent North American thing - if you consider older manual of arms, load weapon, place weapon on safe, disengage safety, pull trigger. Never once do they mention finger on/off trigger.
