Getting Started Shooting a Revolver

shooting a revolver


It can be a little intimidating getting started shooting a revolver. The can look a little old school and while in reality they are quite simple the mechanics are different from a semi auto.

With the grip you want to tuck your thumb because of the cylinder release and the gases that escape from the cylinder.

You should also pay attention to the trigger release with a revolver. You want the trigger to be constantly moving so you get the speed you need to engage threat or multiple threats.

Another issue is practicing reloading with your strong hand whereas with a semi auto you reload the magazine with the offhand.

We found a good video that demonstrates all this. Check it out and tell us what you think about getting started shooting a revolver.
