Back in the day I worked at the range a good bit and one day we had a bunch of rookies coming through. The old SGt. in charge enlisted my help in a wire job.
The PD had some really nice old S&W Model 27s that had been used by the pistol team. Prior to the class he told me he was going to brag about the triggers on those old genus. Then he was going to dry fire it twice and hand it to me. I was to also dry fire it wise and hand it to one of the rookies who thought he was God's gift to firearms. So he pulled the trigger too. You'd be surprised how loud a primer can be...
y'know , it's like a match burning- some folks are content to use it to light a fire, and some folks hold on to it until their fingers get burned- our "heads' used to call it situational fascination- I've seen this 1 many times before and from what i recollect, she was TOLD not to touch the gun- the Russians have a version of this called"dont poke the bear" which is self explainitory
Oh and there's the cruel joke of loading a cylinder with light wadcutters, and one magnum round. New shooters are usually convinced that the gun blew up. ... Not that I've ever done anything like that. :bigidea:
