Default Gun Handling

Ok, let's all agree that sometimes actors and actresses flinch and have poor trigger safety.

Maybe, in order to be more professional, we can stop pointing this out every damn time it happens? I'm all for awarding good gun handling, like when actors have good trigger discipline or don't flinch(Robert Patrick as T-1000 in T2, or Michael Caine as Ex-Royal Marine in Harry Brown).

I just can't help but feel like we're being childish by looking down our noses at actors for not being firearms experts. I get embarrassed whenever I read a page with lots of that thrown in.

So what do you say, accentuate the positive from now on?
