    I found this Hickkok45 video concerning how not to hold a revolver and the dangerous outcome it can have. I realize many experienced gun owners know this about revolvers, but I would bet many new to revolvers have no knowledge how they can cause severe damage to body parts.

    Sorry if this is a repeat as I did not check. My apologies if that is the case.

    That's why you should always, if possible, read the owners manual of every gun that is new to you. Most companies have them online or at least available free.

    Sad that some people new to the shooting sports don't take the time to read the manuals that come with new firearms. If the gun is used and didn't have a manual with it, order one. If you need to shoot it and are not knowledgeable, get competent advice before injuring yourself. How hard is that?

    Smith & Wesson's current revolver manuals have idiot proof illustrations of what not to do.

    More than one person has had fingertips amputated by S&Ws .500 Mags. Don
