background:  we have a member who needs his fellow posse members to move his rifle and shotgun to and from the shooting positions.  He can shoot them but he's not steady enough to carry the long guns and step up and down with them.     A fellow posse member takes his rifle from him at the loading table and carries it to its shooting position and sets it down.   turns out the hammer was cocked and not noticed till RO pointed it out to the helper and everyone else in earshot.
