    I use an RF scanner like this at work. After I got back from Frontsight last month, I caught myself holding it with finger straight, off the trigger button- LOL!

    Also guilty, I always carry the impact gun or drill at work with my finger straight. I have started looking for it too when I see people working, not many keep their finger off the trigger when not engaging screws.

    LOL... I too, carry drills and such with a straightened booger-hook until ready to use, but I was amused to find myself carrying a caLking (pronounce the "L" now.. LOL) gun in the patrol carry postion one day... it just felt "right"... sheesh.

    yep, I catch myself all the time treating my dewalt cordless drill like a handgun, keeping it pointed in a safe direction and my finger off the trigger till I am ready to drill.
