A big advantage of working with competent models is that they can be asked to do a task instead of being directed, minute degree at a time, into a position which mimics doing the task. For example: “Please point the rifle towards the main light, turret stance” is a perfectly comprehensible request to such a model, and I don’t have to worry about the safety selector being in the wrong position, or stance not being balanced.
So, when I pick a pistol and the model recognizes it as the kind she carries back home, that makes for a more productive photo shoot.
The laser trace would look like this once the first shot is fired and the air is full of smoke. The stance illustrates one of the advantages of laser sighting: the ability to use a compressed hold to maneuver in confined spaces.
PS: The images represent a sudden defensive use, hence no safety glasses or ear plugs. Don’t shoot without those unless your life is in so much danger, that smaller risks become irrelevant.
