Expression of the week # 13


Meaning: If you jump the gun, you start doing something too soon.

For example:
If you're in a debate, wait until you're invited to speak and don't jump the gun by speaking before you should.

In Portuguese: se precipitar com alguma coisa

The origin comes from the metaphorical derivation from athletics, in which an official starter fires a gun to signal the start of a race.
