I really have to disagree with that. I would not allow that behavior in my presence or with any of my guns (Whoops I forgot, I have no guns, I sold them all for incense, candles and love beads...nothing to see here Big Brother). Unless one is going to shoot or the need to shoot could arise very quickly there is no need to have your finger in the trigger guard. Placing your finger along the outside and top of the trigger guard is called "indexing", that is the proper place for your trigger finger (or index finger) with a loaded gun. Finger on the trigger only if you intend to fire or simulate fire with an empty gun.
