It's hard tell even from the close up if his finger actually is on the trigger. I think it is.

I can understand the motivation for having the safety off. With an AK it will take and extra second or two put take it off. But never never ever put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot.

Given its Chechnya......can't blame the guy with riding the trigger. I think Ogrish, has enough reasons (video) for one to be at the ready, even if it means finger on the trigger.

Then again.....I'm nice, and warm, thousands of miles away, resting on an armchair.

Not necessarily. If he dry fired it then put the mag in. the hammer would not be down and the bolt would then be closed. As stated above "Just rack and shoot" which is faster and easier than taking an ak off safe, this is not an uncommon way of carrying in situations where civilians, especially women carrying children, are present.

How the heck is it faster to rack the bolt than to just flip the selector to fire??

Keep your friggin thumb around the grip and just flip the selector down with your middle finger. Almost fast as an AR.

Go try it. Hold the rifle down by your side and pull it up and snatch the bolt to the rear and release it. Then hold it by your side and take the safety off........See which is easier.

If the chamber is empty, what fucking difference does it make which position the hammer is in?

If the situation is so difficult that he needs to be instantly ready, maybe carrying the weapon at some semblance of a ready position would help.

Probably is ready to shoot, Last month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil the cop riding shotgun is literally riding shotgun with an M-16 jutting from the window, and watching them when they dismount it looks like they are ready to shoot.
