Soldiers and police officers carry guns all the time. They have to. But they don't run charging forward with a pistol aimed blindly and their fingers on the trigger. That is no way for a professionally trained soldier or officer to act.

First off, whenever the gun is out, the index finger should be extended. No matter how well trained (or brainwashed) a person may be, accidents can happen. To avoid that, proper training suggests they keep their fingers off the trigger until they actually plan to fire.

Second, running with a handgun is kind of silly. Even if you were Hawkeye, handguns are meant for short range defense or aimed offense, not shotting wildly while running. An assault rifle, maybe. That's why those types of guns were invented, but a handgun? It just looks sloppy.

Someone running like that looks more like a gangsta than a trained soldier.

My two cents.

No doubt, %100 correct. The only thing is the that , let's face it, those writing or drawing comics theses days, for the most part, don't know much about gun handling. Although, I always get the impression that Brubaker knows a bit about the military at least to know what you are writing. Of course, the art is by Ross, and 'artistic' license allows 'Bond' to drop from aircraft and not mess up his hair and Captain America able to handle a gun this way. \:D
