It would be funny if not so terribly sad, that ANYBODY in this modern day believes that a revolver should be carried cocked. I really can't say what I am thinking because I believe we should all be civil to each other in these forums, but the actions leading to this mishap, and the fact that the poster would come in and freely post about this even while not considering any of his actions to be incorrect is just mindboggling. Really, I just can't wrap my head around this.

Really....really...you actually thought you were suppossed to carry this thing cocked?

I agree I'd be too embarrassed to tell anyone let alone try to convince them it was the guns fault. I'd like to think at least he meant no harm but clearly has no business handling loaded guns in public. Every detail of his account makes it more clear he has no business handling firearms. It just sucks that when liberal anti gun types want to profile gun owners it is this type of gun owner that will be portrayed as typical. I'd be surprised if this wasn't his first gun.

ok

I've owned many different pistols in my life. I was in personal private security for many years. Got to be a pretty good shot with everything I've owned. I wasn't blaming the pistol. Just that is was my first colt revolver and yes the cylinder could be opened with the hammer back and the hammer can be cocked and let down while the cylinder is open. I didnt think it was suppose to do that. I'm just staying that they think I was playing with it.

A master gunsmith tells you you're wrong, and two others who HAVEN'T been arrested for doing something this stupid are telling you you're wrong, but instead of remaining silent and appearing a fool, you are flapping your gums to erase all doubt.

Please amuse us all and show us one picture...provide a link....that indicates ANY brand of holster where you are suppossed to carry a revolver cocked.

One. Yes. You pulled the trigger. You just didn't realize it because the trigger is light. That's why it's considered unsafe to carry a DA revolver cocked. Not because it's subject to fire unaided...but because the trigger is so ticklish that you can pull it without even knowing that you're touching it.

Keep your finger out of the trigger guard unless you're prepared for the gun to fire, and prepared to accept the consequences for firing it.

And no holster maker designs a holster for a DA revolver that requires that it be cocked before the retaining strap or thumb break can be used. My guess is that you tried to stuff the gun into a holster that it wasn't meant to be stuffed into.

Finally...swinging the cylinder in and out with the hammer cocked?

Sorry. I'd have to see it happen.

Call a lawyer. You're gonna need one.

And please...for the love of God...if you manage to hang onto your right to own a gun...get some safety instruction from somebody who actually knows what they're doing.

Well for one I wasn't arrested its a misdemeanor.Once I get the gun back I'll post some pics of the gun with cylinder opened and cocked along with it in the holsters. That is unless I sell it to cover my fines.

I do believe I pulled the trigger. Just had a little shock. My hearing was just ringing noise in a water bucket for about a week. I guess I was getting to used to carrying one of my 1911's and hadn't gotten a chance to get used to this one so...
