Thomas Magnum and gun handling....

I know that relatively recently, Tom Selleck ripped an extra on the set of Blue Bloods a new one because of improper firearms handling. 

Today, I'm watching Magnum P.I. and notice that even during a firefight, Thomas keeps his finger off of the trigger unless he's actually firing.  And he's careful not to point his firearm at a non-combatant either.  Funny how you become more aware of the little things and kudos to Mr. Selleck for walking his talk, even when acting, even back in the day.

Good for him, and just 'maybe' the Hollywierd types will actually pay attention!!!

He's the proud NRA member who was ripped a new one by Rosie O'Donnell after Columbine, when he did an NRA commercial.
He responded politely and confused, while she ranted and screamed at him.
He not only walks the walk, but is a class act.

Actors have been shot before while on the set. Glad to see Selleck is still working.
