Why would I be jealous? I'm not jealous that you shot skeet with Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.

Yes, Thank you for pointing that out to me, but I actually meant to say 'Skeet', my failed attempt to inject more than one complexity into my humor. As my most valued critic, I will run any further attempts by you beforehand.

Shooting a hammer gun is different from shooting a hammerless gun and there are different sets of reflexes you have to develop. That has been my experience.

When I walk in on a point, or in the case of no dog, enter the cover, the action is then closed and my trigger hand cupped over the triggers and guard so no errant branch or twig can trip a trigger, and muzzles held skyward. When not in the cover my gun is always open and I can let the hammers down with no danger of a discharge if a hammer slips from my thumb.

A lifter is ideal for this method but a top-action works just as well as long as the action can be opened with the right hammer remaining cocked - not all top-action hammer guns can be opened with the right hammer cocked.

That's been my system with hammer guns, as well. One of the things I love about lifters, btw. Oh, and fishtail top levers rule!
