Don't Try This At Home

If you've perused the sidebar or read my bio on my website, you know that I enjoy shooting.  So did Steve McQueen.  Here's a picture of the cool guy and his wife doing a bit of plinking in the desert in 1963:

I love the composition of this picture.  Notice Mrs. McQueen's hair blowing forward.  Notice her casually crossed ankles.  Admire her abs, which were doing a lot of work keeping her balanced in this position.  But whatever you do, don't copy her gun-handling skills.  Poor grip on the gun.  Gun too close to her face.  No eye protection.  No ear protection.  Ditto for Steve on the last two points.   Tsk, tsk.

For more pictures of these two in their Palm Springs home, read this article.

  1. Forget about Mrs. McQ's amazing gymnasitc or yoga-like skills. Her elbows had to have been enduring some major pain. OW! Think maybe there's a hidden towel cushioning her delicate joints?
