YouTube is full of stupid people doing stupid things, and maybe I’ve showcased some of them on this blog. This video, however, is not one of them.
Check out Hickok45, an extremely popular and well-respected YouTube gun reviewer, showing how NOT to shoot a revolver. Perhaps you recently bought a snub-nose revolver for personal protection, or a larger-framed revolver for home defense. In any case, it pays to learn the proper shooting technique to avoid injuring yourself.
Note: Hickok45 began posting videos on YouTube 5 years ago, and to date has more than 750 videos available. He has 413,000-plus subscribers to his YouTube channel, with total video views numbering over 121 million! The video above has been viewed more than 537,000 times, and you just added to that total.
What I like about Hickok45 is he’s very knowledgeable, but also humble. And he’s responsible.
I highly recommend you check out his many fine videos; you can type in whatever topic you’re looking for in the “search” feature of his YouTube channel, or simply browse his videos by popularity, date, etc.
Until next time ...

P.S. Hickok45 received some viewer comments regarding this video that claimed the paper damage was due to muzzle blast and not cylinder gap gas escape. So, he recently conducted the experiment again with a longer-barreled handgun. Watch the video by clicking here. In my book, Hickok45 is the man.
