Incendiary Image of the Day: Torrid Tori Edition

Tori Nonaka trigger discipline (courtesy

Tori Nonaka continues her winning ways. In a competition designed for kids learning to identify all 57 states—the 2013 Buckeye Freedom Blast at the Miami Rifle and Pistol Club in Cincinnati, Ohio—the Team GLOCK shooter scooped High Lady and High B Class honors. Deploying her “soft shooting” .40 GLOCK 24 pistol, Nonaka finished in tenth place overall in the Limited division’s field of 80-plus competitors. To paraphrase the Sinatras, and then she goes it and blows it all and says I love you. To the trigger. OK, it’s a bit of an over-reaction. Photographers love to show trigger indiscipline. It adds tension and drama to the shot. The People of the Gun, however, love nothing more than a perfectly proportioned index finger lovingly placed along the side of a gun’s frame. Four rules be damned. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

    Meh. Really not that good looking.

    1. avatar Hal J. says:

      She’s better looking than 95% of women out there. That’s pretty “good looking” in my book!

      1. avatar Whatever says:

        95% might be a shade low.

        1. avatar Hal J. says:

          Fair point; make it 98%!

    2. avatar ThomasR says:

      Unless your girl friend is better looking than her, then your just full of sh–sour grapes.

    3. avatar WLCE says:

      hey now! hey now! 😉

  2. avatar William says:

    Where is Ammoland and how do I get there?

    1. avatar MN Matt says:

      Not in “The Cities.” I’ve had the best luck finding supplies the further out in the country I go.

      1. avatar Logan P says:

        Ammo on Da Range is sparse, but it is not non-existent.

        Except for .308/7.62 NATO.

    2. avatar In Memphis says:

      Follow the yellow brick road

    3. avatar Pro-2A says:

      You will go to ammo land when you die.

  3. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

    if she’s a pro why is her finger on/near the trigger?

    1. avatar Keith says:

      Look how cool she looks!

  4. avatar Bluehaman79 says:

    Ya I”m going to have dreams about her fondling my broomstick tonight. But we can’t be hippocrites. If Bloombergs MAIG makes a commercial featuring a “hunter” with his finger on the trigger and every gun organization criticizes it for unsafe gun handling, then a professional shooter needs to have the same responsibility. Normally I wouldn’t care but that just gives the “slavers” something to gripe and bitch about. But she does look damn fine like that.

  5. avatar Jeff says:


    They couldn’t even get her to put on something other than her goofy-looking silk Glock racewear for a photo?

    Oh yeah, sponsored sports. The Nascar of the gun world.

  6. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    I would love to see a picture of her mother . . . . . .

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:


  7. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    She gets a pass and can place that lovely finger just about anywhere she would like.

    1. avatar dirk diggler says:

      funny b/c I didn’t make this comment so whomever did, FU

    2. avatar Pro-2A says:

      Wow just realized there is a gun and bad trigger discipline in the photo.

  8. avatar Gyufygy says:

    Looks like the mag well is empty, so at least there’s that.

    Now I want a G24, and I don’t even really like .40! No, not because a hot woman is holding it. I just didn’t know it existed, and it’s even longer than my friend’s 35! Hmmm, wonder if I can get a compensator on my compensator…

    1. avatar Logan P says:

      Yo dawg, we heard you like Glocks…

  9. avatar Dale says:

    If we are going to stave off regulation we have to standardize and normalize training and safe behavior so that people “just do it” without a governmental mandate. If we are going to accomplish that goal those who represent the firearms industry and culture MUST be consistent and follow the agreed upon rules, finger off the trigger for example, at ALL times.

    Anyone who fails to do so may help sales in the short run, but are hurting ALL of us in the long run.

    That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. (and my communications to Ammoland and Glock are already on the way)

  10. avatar Paul says:

    Not for nuthin, but why is she on trigger?? I mean c’mon, is it that hard to follow the basic safety rules??

    1. avatar Ropingdown says:

      Suggestion for the unimaginative ad copy photo guys: Just have her curl her trigger finger as if to say “come hither.” Still photogenic. No finger on the trigger.

  11. avatar Ken says:

    She may have shot a G24 in the competition but I don’t believe that’s what she has in her hands in the picture. The slide isn’t long enough. Looks more like a 34/35.

    1. avatar Pascal says:

      I am fairly sure it is a G34. I saw her shoot at a GSSF competition and that is what she was used and used in other competition.

  12. avatar Pascal says:

    “Photographers love to show trigger indiscipline. It adds tension and drama to the shot.”

    Really? Does it? I am a armature photographer and work as second assistant to a pro. I don’t see the tension, I see an old *yawn*, been there done that before shot.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Yeah, I see a pretty, pretty talented lady, and a completely unimaginative photographer.

    2. avatar MiketheHopsFarmer says:

      Armature photographer? That’s shocking?! Oh wait that’s just my engineering nerdiness acting up.

  13. avatar Joe says:

    She can hold it how ever she wants.

  14. avatar Ralph says:

    OMG! It’s a finger! On a trigger! It’s a picture of a finger on a trigger! OMG!

  15. avatar Joke & Dagger says:

    That’s it. I’ve had it. I’m going to go get nuts. I’m going to the safe room, taking out one of my pistols, triple checking that it is unloaded, and PUTTING MY FINGER ON THE TRIGGER!!!!!!! Oh the horror, bitchez.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Don’t forget to take a picture so the rest of us can share in your horror.

      1. avatar MothaLova says:

        This is why we need to ban trigger fingers.

        1. avatar Joke & Dagger says:


    2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      I just did….
      Oh the shame.

  16. avatar MikeH121 says:

    I have shot and done some work at Miami Gun Club……
    No one was there that looked like that when I was there shooting or working.

    It is in the hills, the longe range requires you to put up the chain across the road then take your shot. It is a wierd setup but has been there for years.

    1. avatar Totenglocke says:

      I won’t even consider going to that club with their absurd rules for membership. Especially the “you cannot be opposed to anything the government does” rule. Eff that.

  17. avatar Ronald RayGun says:

    Chick lean.

  18. avatar Derek says:

    Doesn’t matter; boobs.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Well, in the photo in question, it’s more about the cheekbones. You could BASE jump off those things. And I mean that in a good way.

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        No, boobs is actually the correct answer. The picture could be of her feet and boobs would be the correct answer.

  19. avatar Elysium says:

    As a photographer, the only incendiary aspect of this image is that the photography didn’t have the stylist pull the trigger on some hairspray to control all of Tori’s fly always.

  20. avatar Ricko says:

    Common on guys. This chick is jail bait.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Without disagreeing with your premise (and without getting into the whole “sexuality is a light switched flipped on the 18th birthday” argument), I would point out that I’m pretty sure she’s 18 now. She joined Team GLOCK in 2011 at 15, and I remember reading a story not long after that about her winning a competition “just days after her sixteenth birthday.”

      As a matter of fact, a quick check of the Googles found a story dated May 2012 that refers to her as 16, and one dated June 2012 that refers to her as 17… So you might want to wish her Happy Birthday, as it may have happened just in the last couple weeks.

      1. avatar Shenandoah says:

        Matt, that is some quality creeping. Well done, sir.

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          It’s a gift.

        2. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          I’ll see Matt’s creeping and raise you one “the age of consent in most states is 16”. Your move.

    2. avatar Totenglocke says:

      Jailbait? More like *shrug*”Meh”*shrug* bait.

    3. avatar WLCE says:

      nuh uh!!! (as i scan behind me for my wife).

  21. avatar Gun Lover says:

    Wait…she’s holding a gun? Oh, yea, look at that. Her finger is on the trigger? I would not want it any other way.

  22. avatar Matt in FL says:

    I just realized something. Her finger is on the trigger as a warning, because she saw all you old dirty bastards coming!

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Whether or not this dirty old bastard is coming is irrelevent, Matt. She’s got her finger on the trigger because of your creeping.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        Heh, no, I draw the line at the birthday thing. And even then, it wasn’t even reading the articles. It was hitting Google and reading the headlines that popped up. I retain my non-creeper status.

  23. avatar PavePusher says:

    Fer cryin’ out loud, it’s a damn staged photo shoot. Everyone drop trou and de-constrict yer panties.

  24. avatar Bob Wall says:

    To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld – “It’s a scratch, not a pull.”

  25. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

    I wish I was that lucky pistol.

  26. avatar Saul Feldstein says:

    Her finger is on the trigger, but that G34 is not cocked nor chambered, you can tell by the trigger being all the way to the rear, so its akin to putting your finger on the trigger of a 1911 with the hammer down.

  27. avatar Mediocrates says:

    She gets a pass. Obviously, the weapon is unloaded.

  28. avatar Pro-Liberty says:


    Is it pointed in a safe direction? Seems so. Is it safety-checked x100? Probably, yes. Is dry-firing in those conditions permissible? Yes. How about dry-firing while having your picture taken? Also yes. Okay, how about something less than dry-firing, like, I dunno, giving the trigger a little caress with the ole fingertip? QED

    Triggers are designed to interface with trigger fingers.

  29. avatar Big B says:

    Why is it OK to practice and to help break in a new gun by dry firing , that is actually pulling the trigger, but some people go ape sh*t when someone puts their finger in a trigger guard of an unloaded gun pointed in a safe direction.
    Sorry, I guess I said the exact same thing as Pro-Liberty

  30. avatar Justice06RR says:

    There’s a gun in this picture???

  31. avatar TZH says:

    people have be disqualified for less, but its a photo shoot…

  32. avatar J says:

    10th place means 9th loser. Try harder.
