Theoretically Mike, I sort of agree with the first part of your statement but if you leaned it against something like a tree or something vertical the heel of the butt would be on the ground but the gun would be inclined away from the thickest part of the safety button which would necessarily be fully depressed in order to push the detent away from the sears.

Your second sentence I think was made in jest.

"I'm a Setter man.
Not because I think they're better than the other breeds,
but because I'm a romantic - stuck on tradition - and to me,
a Setter just "belongs" in the grouse picture."
