Since the 0.54 update you can now fire your weapon when jogging.

@knister: Before 0.54 pressing the fire button would ready your weapon when jogging and that was a lot better. There's no point in firing your weapon at the ground while jogging.
@laywiin: Well, you do have a point. Using the fire button to ready your weapon is really not a good practice. This will force people to ready their weapon by double tapping left ctrl.
It's not about the double tap ctrl "lower weapon" stance. This is about the fact that when jogging since about 3 patches ago the crosshairs do not vanish and the weapon is still live even though it is pointed at the ground. You can say "keep you finger off the trigger" but this is not about that. This is about the crosshairs on screen not matching the muzzle and the weapon being active in a position where no one would want to fire. This is a bug and that is why we are here.
So, the best solution would be to just remove the crosshair while your weapon is lowered, I guess.
That would be good. But as the players trigger finger is not on the trigger when he is running, indicating a safe handling procedure it would make sense to not be able to fire while in that state as well. I don't know why you want to be able to shoot the floor while you run, or shoot your knees. Issue is assigned. Mission accomplished.
