Default Firing the LeMat revolver

Here's the full video on the LeMat cap & ball revolver. This is the nineteenth century version of the Taurus Judge. Lots of shotgun barrel shooting in this one

I love the way he keeps his finger on the trigger every time he picks it up as he talks. The expert must have skipped out on the firearm safety course.
Decent little revolver though......

I guess you also noted that the revolver is clearly unloaded and uncapped.

Agreed on the unloaded / uncapped, BUT ALL guns are to be treated as loaded and finger on trigger ONLY when ready to fire. I get on my wife and daughter at the lgs when I see that behavior.

No offense, the only thing I "clearly" see is a finger laying on a trigger of a firearm that is not fixing to be fired.

As stated above, 1st rule of firearm safety, keep your finger off the trigger unless your ready to fire! No exclusions on loaded or unloaded.
I dont understand why you seem to be taking offense personally, unless your the expert in the video. If thats the case then, very nice revolver, looks very fun to shoot. Please keep your finger off the trigger during your next tutorial.

If I remember my"War Between the States" history JEB Stuart carried one of these.
9-42 cal bullets in the upper and a 18 ga shotgun on the bottom.

18 gauge hand cannon = 18 = -63.637" =16.1798mm, .50 cal. = 12.7 mm

Glad that is Black powder and not modern smokless!

The revolver was kinda neat in concept, but thank you for teaching all of us why metallic cartridges are so awesome.
