Trigger-happy bank robber

Trigger-happy bank robber

Paulo Mendes flipped the safety off on the .44 Mag­num, twisted it over in his hand check­ing the nickel fin­ish, and kept tap­ping its cousin, a Colt 45, against his leg to the tune inside his head. He was begin­ning to think that Fábio and Ramon were tak­ing their time rob­bing this bank. Now, he started point­ing the .44 Mag­num at his own reflec­tion in the win­dow, spin­ning the revolver and glanc­ing back over his shoul­der. The .44 Mag­num slipped from his grip and he caught the trig­ger with his fin­ger. Then he felt the bul­let pass through his foot.

The .44 Magnum slipped from his grip and he caught the trigger with his finger. Then he felt the bullet pass through his foot.
