Nog is about to leave for the Academy and Quark spots a perfect opportunity. He has just received a shuttle from his cousin Gaila, that was promised him ten years ago. He doesn't trust it and asks Rom to, but he can find nothing out of order. Quark and Rom decide to take Nog to the Academy with it. Not because Quark approves or wants to do the boy a favor, he wants to take contraband along: kemacite. When they arrive at Earth, they find out Gaila intention's weren't so good after all.

Coming from the position they were in, they would have to both lower the pistol and position their arms into a firing stance, as well as pick up the sight picture, it is much too slow, which is why no real training doctrine uses it. "Hollywood ready" exists exclusively to show off the pistol to the camera, a trained MP would never use that position. See more
