This is a short, highly informative video from Hickok45:
How NOT to shoot a revolver.
Especially with snubbies, you don't want to index your finger along the frame.
But what I really wanted to share here is how he unloads the unspent round. Perfect example of safe handling.
"It may seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first."
Revolvers are different animals for those not used to them. I learned on them and had to get used to bottom feeders.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
I can see how someone used to shooting semi's picks up a revolver and without 'some' training learns an important life lesson...good 'reminding post'.

I grew up on revolvers and switch back and forth now with autos. I just use the same old DA revolver grip on all of em. Might not shoot my autos as well as some but I got all my thumbs.
Knew not to hold one like that, and knew about a guy losing his thumb with the 500 S&W, but never dreamed a smaller one do that to a rolled up target.
Yep ,now I can explain to my wife how I get holes in my underwear

I've shot thumbs forward on .357 Magnum revolvers for years with no more "damage" than powder residue on my thumb tips.
With "Super Magnums" like the .500 it's serious safety hazard, but a. 357 isn't going to hurt you unless your gun is seriously out of time and shaving lead like crazy or your cylinder gap is way out of spec.
This is an interesting topic to me in part because we have a number of folks who pocket carry
revolvers and advocate shooting them from within the pocket if need be. IT looks like that would be a pretty
bad idea, though perhaps a needed act of desperation, as surely you would set your pants on fire
and take a chunk out of your hide.
Similarly, we have had a number of posts on firing from the hip retention position. And, even Guantes
illustrations of DATD, how he rests the gun on the crook of the bent elbow, seems potentially problematic
with a revolver.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
