Yikes, he must have been shooting single action to have had his hand there!
I must admit that I never thought that the result would be so catastrophic :(
I am glad that I read this :)

He was shooting a 460 revolver! He knew better than to put a finger anywhere near the cylinder! Just another example of our greedy, litigious society that he would even file a law suit on such a spurious claim.

I agree that the shooter should know the dangers, but as a hunter and shooter for 40 years I did not know that!

I have only shot a revolver 1 time for perhaps 10 shots max.
If the manual states the danger then the shooter takes the risk :) just like with every other product!

I had a guy ask me to zero in his 460 that was ported. After 5 rounds I wanted to be done. I will say it was awesome to shoot.
