Default Problem shooting my revolver

My problem with shooting 357 mag revolver is, I keep getting my mustache caught in it. Could it be im holding it to close to my face, or my mustache is to long ?

You'll shoot your eye out kid

Nah...hold the revolver right up to your face so you can get proper eye relief off the sights. Don't worry about the hammer hitting your eye or anything. It'll only hurt the first time, that's all.

If you look at historical representations of the old West, you'll note waxed handlebar style moustaches. This is precisely why. Since the old west is one of two recognized revolver heavy eras (the other being the release of the Dirty Harry films), an upswept stache was mandatory.

You are obviously limp wristing the revolver. Try holding it tighter and closer to your dominant eye.

Then let is know if your eyebrow gets caught.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

I would say to reply to this post is to play into the hands of a Noobie
