I have a Ruger Blackhawk and a Vaquero that both have a transfer bar and are completely safe when fully loaded. However, the Uberti six shooters do not have a transfer bar and I wouldn't carry one with a round in the chamber. So I don't think ALL modern revolvers have a transfer bar...

My bad. I do not own and have never shot a SA revolver. When someone mentions revolver, I automatically assume a modern DA revolver. My statement does apply to all modern DA revolvers from mainstream manufacturers...

Yep, my Ruger Elsie Ahrrrr even has a audible safety check.

Just shake it and you can hear the transfer bar rattle!

Me thinks its not a design function??

RIGHT, Not all gun makers use a transfer bar but they DO utilize some sort of SAFETY. Uberti uses FIRST NOTCH SAFETY... and it is just as safe as a transfer bar.

Your friend is misinformed if he is speaking of a double action revolver such as a Smith, Colt, Ruger, Dan Wesson, etc. Either transfer bar, or an equivalent safety system. To fire my model 36 that resides on my weak side, the trigger needs to be all the way back for the hammer to fall, and the FP strike a primer. It would be possible to clamp it in a vise, take a 3 lb engineer's hammer, and pound the hammer until it shatters, and THEN it might fire, when the broken hammer was driven forward. But I always unload my Chief's Special before attacking it with a hammer.

This ad is from 1905. Yep- 105 years ago. Think this has been around a while. An original Colt Single Action, the Old style Ruger Single action- YES- there is an exposure. However, some folks believe that applies to ANY revolver. (They also believe politician promises, but let's not go there....."

If you want to prove it to someone do this;
Take an unloaded revolver, cock the hammer and point it to the sky. Drop a pencil down the barrel, eraser first. Squeeze the trigger in the normal fashion. The pencil will be shot up by the firing pin strike. Remove pencil and recock. Insert the pencil and tap the trigger with your finger like a nun would hit you on the head in school. The trigger will release the hammer but spring forward faster than the hamer and the firing pin will not hit the pencil.

Smith & Wesson revolvers have two internal safeties that prevent the hammer from striking the primer unless the trigger is pulled. One is the steel to steel engagement between the hammer and the rebound slide. The second is the hammer block that attaches to the rebound and slips up to block the hammer unless the trigger is held to the rear.

I remember some years back there was a big advertisig campaign promoting emply chambers in both autos and revolvers. I would say it was at least 15 years ago because I fell for it. That would not happen today. It was quite widespread. I remember seeing a full page ad in a magazine like Guns and Ammo or something like that. As I remember, it was probably quite misleading. I bet it was from some anti gun group.
