That revolver Flicking is Hollywood. My 30ish son did that with my Python. I was not pleased, to say the least

Unfortunately. yes. I have even seen gun store clerks do it. Well, it wasn't really a gun store. It was Gander Mountain.

Does flicking the revolver cylinder closed damage the weapon in any way?

Does it? Not always, but it can. The pin that locks the cylinder in place can get bent or burred. I have also seen a S&W that had a crack in the frame where the cylinder crane sits, but I think that one was from careless opening.

I have said this before: One of mine is Ladies who come with their Husbands/BF's and are not "dressed" properly for the range. No matter how "hot" you think you are in Skimpy Short shorts and your Boobs hangin Out with you Cleavage showing, It's not proper attire for the Shooting range,..an d don't cry when hot brass gets down "there," because you dressed like you were going out to a Bar to pick up a Guy(s)...
The owner of our range is a Woman, and she has said she would make at least one female customer buy a T-Shirt to cover her Chest...And this is not "sour" grapes BTW,..My Wife is Amply Blessed.

My bustically challenged daughter has had hot brass in what she laughingly calls her cleavage several times. I have to hand it to her. She always safes the firearm before she digs it out.

Man, I hope she doesn't visit this forum.

I hate the assumption that milsurps suck. Also, that non polymer or tactical guns are obsolete and not worth owning. I also don't care for sporterizing milsurps.
