Tampa Chief Trains New Trigger Finger

July 10, 2013  | 

After losing the tip of her right index finger in a June boating accident, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor swapped her semi-auto pistol for a revolver and trained her middle finger to operate the trigger.

Chief Castor practiced about 100 times a day with the middle finger on the trigger and took the agency's firearm qualifying test, scoring a 38 out of 40.

Chief Castor injured the finger on June while trying to start her boat, reports the Tampa Times.

I wish someone would design a 9mm or .40 cal for people with small hands. There is just nothing for women and guys with little hands. This is the way God made me why can't gun makers understand that?
