Aunt Jen Posted April 19, 2011 Share Posted April 19, 2011 I was watching another documentary on the TV that dealt with gun handling, "Support Your Local Gunfighter," and in it, the protagonist was mistaken for a gunslinger. He didn't want to get into the fight, so he clubbed the other man on the head with his revolver. I think it was a Colt. Now, the problem is how he did it. He pulled his revolver out of his holster with the same grip he'd use if he were going to shoot with it, but he raised it high, instead, and brought it down on the guy's head. It struck me---figuratively---that that might be a bad way to do it, but I've see it that way in other documentaries as well. Wouldn't that technique likely result in a smashed pinky finger? As it rides on the front lower part of the grip. Or might it over time loosen the barrel of the gun? Or might it be an uneven bashing of the head, with the barrel taking part of it, the trigger guard taking part, and the front edge of the grip taking another part---or your finger. However it's done, was that the proper way to do it? Aunt Jen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
