At least he is doing something other than raising his hands up in the air... Lets face it, there are only so many things that they can do when the win a race. I like the pistol, to me it shows aggression which is becoming very rare in the peloton.
I for one like it -- it's creative, nobody else does it, and it's better than pointing at the jersey, hands in the air, or the baby-cradling. Heck, he should do a machine gun move next. (He can't do the shotgun -- Paolo Bettini has rights over that.) He will soon be the patron of the peloton and has earned the right to do what he pleases.
It's good to see at least a few riders injecting some flair into the peloton.
