    I see that weird "middle finger to pull the trigger" in a lot of photos from that era and before. Was this some kind of tactical thing, or did these people just not teach proper trigger control?

    Now I want to see if I can find an old transit stand or camera tripod at the thrift store to build one of these.

    The middle finger was used with rapid fire, the index finger points to the target. This was also done when shooting the revolvers.
