This is why gun safety should be taught in public schools, all schools actually. This kid learned somewhere to leave the chamber in front of the hammer empty as a safety precaution. What he did not know was that his gun was double-action so that when the trigger is pulled, the cylinder moves clockwise to place a new round ready for the firing pin to hit the primer and fire that round. This must have been a horrific scene for the family and it did not have to happen.

You are right, it seems to me I learned about double action wheel guns by looking at how they operate. It's obvious the cylinder rotates to the next chamber before the hammer strikes the fireing pin.

Of course this guy really phocked up by pointing the gun at his head while pulling the trigger. At least he didn't kill someone else. I mean the gene poll was improved by his action, he was a real dummy.

Lowell! You know damned well that I won't let you keep any guns in the house! Now you quit your lying and get back to your chores!
