Trigger Guard

A trigger guard is a loop surrounding the trigger of a firearm and protecting it from accidental discharge.

Some assault rifles can have their trigger guard removed or positioned as not to impair firing with gloves for example in Arctic conditions.

Other devices such as inhalers, crossbows and power tools may also have trigger guards.

Famous quotes containing the word guard:

    Most of us are aware of and pretend to detest the barefaced instances of that hypocrisy by which men deceive others, but few of us are upon our guard or see that more fatal hypocrisy by which we deceive and over-reach our own hearts.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
