  1. I can’t tell for sure, but his reaction makes me think he had a finger across the cylinder gap. That will get your attention.
    Or, if it’s a big one like a .460 Smith, a trip to the ER.

    1. I do not see the finger across the gap happening there, but it is a bad angle.
      I am thinking it is a large caliber and he is just plain not prepared for the recoil.
      What bothers me about this video is it looks like an “on purpose” video. A while back, there was a flurry of videos where small women are given large caliber guns, or shotguns, or whatever, and not being told about the recoil. It was so “funny” to see them get hit in the head by the barrel, or seeing it flip over her shoulder. Fun is had all around… (Yeah… right… idiots, all of them). And, if I remember correctly, at least one girl accidentally shot herself in the head and died.
      Seriously, if someone is setting this guy up for that purpose, they need to be stopped, banned from the range, and sent back to remedial gun safety class.

  2. Did the trigger guard rip his finger, or was it blowout from the gap?

    Also, can you dig up that video? The macabre among us want to see.

  3. “The Perfect Pistol Shot,” by Albert League, recommends holding the gun as lightly as possible, using just enough pressure from your fingers to avoid dropping it.
    I tried his technique for a while. My marksmanship did not improve. My Glock 30 darn near jumped out of my hand, just like in the video.
    I do NOT recommend this book.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
