You can fail to clear the cylinder on a S&W fairly easily- if the base of the round hits the cylinder release button. Technique I was taught- hold grip in right hand, push cylinder release w/ right thumb. LEFT hand under the trigger, fingers PUSH cylinder out and HOLD it out- shift RIGHT hand to cup under rear of cylinder, LEFT thumb pushes ejector rod. Rounds dump into cupped hand. Count, close cylinder, then reopen and recheck it. Sounds awkward, works quite smoothly. If you drop a round when loading, it goes into left hand, not on the ground.

Thumbs up jesse. i think we all get so rapped up in gun and ammo selection and shooting that we sometimes forget maybe not forget but push it into the back of our brains about gun safety. I say remember no matter what your doin or where your at if you have or are carrying a firearm u need to be aware of safety no matter what. Remember to respect you firearm and what it can potentially do.

Glad you caught it in time, I am also anal, as the wife says, about clearing my guns when it is time for their cleaning. I have a young friend with 7 bad scars from a missed round just before cleaning his gun. My SP-101 will try to hold the round next to the frame every time, so I count them as I pull them out and stack them on the table standing up, then check both again several times.

As a general rule for myself, any time I do anything, pick it up, set it down, hand it to a friend or family member, put it in the case, I ALWAYS check it. I feel silly sometimes because I will know for sure I just checked it, but those small habbits are going to save a life, or an accident some day, and I am okay with that .

You can't be too careful.

I'm sure that FBI guy who shot himself in the foot

on Youtube

thought he had taken the proper precautions, too.

I'm usually not happy till I'm looking down an empty

breech with the mag removed, and the slide locked back.
