Hey guys, another video added to my channel on how NOT to hold/grip a revolver.

I know this has been done by Mythbusters, but I had more "graphic" results using a much less elaborate setup. hickok45 did one too, using paper.

Anyhow, here is mine (I'll put links to the Mythbusters and hickok45 video below as well)

Some other guy that used a hotdog

And here's some pics of real injuries

DO NOT CLICK IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM

On second thought, I'm not going to hotlink, you'll have to copy/paste, or just search google for "revolver thumb injury", it will produce the same results as the link here:

Iirc, here in Ar. a few years back a guy bought a S&W .500 and took it hunting without ever firing it before.

He used his left to help hold it up, putting one of his digits right next to the cylinder and the shot severed his finger. When it happened I guess the guy was talking about suing.

Never heard any more about it so I don't know how it turned out.

I made the mistake of shooting a AR15 without a magazine in it once and gripped the magwell it burnt my hand. Good videos new shooters need to watch this.

I thought this was going to be a thread showing people shooting with their elbows sticking out.

Thanks guys, glad you liked the video! I know I'm new here (3 posts.... 4 maybe?), and I'm from Canuckistan. :)

Kind of off topic, but despite what you hear about our strict gun laws up here in the Great White North, we're still better off than California.

Nice work.

Good video! Especially in this day and age when many new shooters have never fired a revolver and attempt to use current auto pistol grip techniques.

Support hand's thumb resting on grip's pad depression and primary thumb wrapped over that thumb or just the other way around. I find a revolver's grip isn't all that friendly to how many shooters grip an auto, but I guess It's possible to get your thumb out there if you try hard enough.
