    She locked her arms with that big revolver. Bad idea. You gotta roll with it.

    So what's the fire coming from around the hammer?

    Cylinder gap.

    Wow. Thank Goddess it (apparently) missed smacking her in the head/face!

    I would expect fire from the front of the cylinder, not through the frame and around the hammer.

    Someone should be pistol whipped for giving her that cannon!

    It seemed like the shooter was trying to avoid a broken finger as recoil was stout enough to bend it back, add a lack of experience with such handguns and not using low power loads to start off with.

    Your angle is wrong. The fire is not coming from the hammer. It's from the cylinder gap. The problem is, the gases jetting from the gap, aren't visible until about 4 inches from the gun. It looks like it's farther behind than it actually is.

    Agreed. Every time I see one of these videos, I get mad at the idjits who give folks like that a firearm they can't handle.

    And if my wife sees a video like that, makes her less likely to want to try shooting.
    I'm just here for snark.

    Not to be pedantic, but that wasn't a .44

    As soon as the gun was picked up and had the dirt shaken off, it should have been used to dent the skull of the idiot who gave her that gun to shoot and filmed it because he thought it'd be funny. There's another girl who'll be afraid of guns. You see that sort of thing all the time on you tube.

    She got lucky, she could have been more injured.

    Yes, it makes me cringe. In this case she could have fired another round into herself or a bystander trying to hang on to it.

    I hope the IDIOT who made that video/gave her the gun reads this and learns what responsible gun owners think of him and his firearms antics. :angry: :cuss:

    The girl is probably a very good shot.......her follow through looks very good.
    Keeps her head down didn't push or heal anticipating recoil
    She was no rookie and I think chose to take that shot......not set up by some male.

    That's what " I" see
  • zorbazorba Senior Member Posts: 24,986 Senior Member
    Hopefully it only had one round in it.

    That's what I do when I'm shooting something new in a caliber that I'm not familiar with.

    I kind of suspect this was staged. Look at her right hand as it recoils, it appears that her fingers were never around the grip but more along side of it allowing the revolver to roll back out of her hands. Could be wrong but that's what it looks like to me. Dumb ass stunt regardless.

    If it was staged, she needs to get a job with a circus act because that would take some serious dedication/practice for it to flip without hitting her.......................

    My boy wanted to shoot my Remington 1858 replica
    He was seven or eight yro. I stood behind him giving his hands and wrist support with mine. No problem of any kind occured. If my 23 yro step daughter requested to shoot anything I suspected might be too much I would be sure to insure her safety. Same with anyone else that might honor me with their trust.
    I'm glad to see I'm not alone here.

    I will add, I let folks shoot my 45-70 Contender quite often. Quite a few of them have never experienced that level of recoil in a handgun.

    I sold my Contender .45-70 barrel to my son-in-law's father. He's taken a few nice deer with it. Me, I bought another 14" hunter barrel in .375 Winchester and it's sweet! I love the .45-70 in a rifle, but hated it in the Contender.
