well, I'll accept your experience, but I find it hard to believe anyone can dig their finger into the shallow flutes of a polished stainless steel 1.5" wide Ruger Sp101 cylinder and stop itIt was not my gun. Another person took a single-handed grip on the gun, pointed it in a safe direction, then I stood facing them, off to the side with direct access via my strong hand. I quickly grabbed the barrel and cylinder, thumb in one flute and two fingers against the other. He was unable to rotate the cylinder with the trigger. He's bigger than me and I assume stronger.
I tried to fire a Ruger Redhawk from the prone position with the revolver braced against the knee of my Carhartt coverallsThat looks painful. Hope your hand is working well now.
Also bear in mind that the blast from the gap between the cylinder and the forcing cone is enough to cut digits off.
I don't have particularly big hands. I may have a stronger than average grip but not by much. Then again I've been single for over a year now.well, I'll accept your experience, but I find it hard to believe anyone can dig their finger into the shallow flutes of a polished stainless steel 1.5" wide Ruger Sp101 cylinder and stop it
you must have VERY strong fingers
we have tried that out here without success
I have a torque wrench on a clamp - I'll test to see how much pressure that takes and let you know
one must be able to torque diesel heads with ones finger to do that
Almost gotta wonder about someone who calls himself "the cool cat" on Twitter. Maybe he needs to change his handle to "the lucky cat" ...It must not have hurt him to bad. He took to Twitter to suck up some quick fame and social media affection.
check my post on how many pages of opening in Portland for security guardsAlmost gotta wonder about someone who calls himself "the cool cat" on Twitter. Maybe he needs to change his handle to "the lucky cat" ...
Anyway, one suspects that with the lack of actual police in Seattle and Portland, there may be an uptick involving incidents with the myriad of private security guards abounding...
I have handled an SP101 and a S&W Model 60. I guess my friends and I are all ninja masters.have you handled a SP101? those flutes are very shallow with smooth edges and total thickness is only 1.5" wide
your NOT getting your fingers to grip in those flutes and most adults hands are to large to get a grip on it's 5 shot cylinder
again, your gona have to have the hands of a Ninja Master to stop this cylinder from rotating
academic discussion at best
I'm not a paid security guard who worries about liability
if I approach an intruder and only have my SP101, it's going to be out and cocked LOOOONG before the intruder is in grappling range
I guess the determining factor here is one allows someone the time to approach them and get a firm grip on their revolver while they do nothing in responseI have handled an SP101 and a S&W Model 60. I guess my friends and I are all ninja masters.
Ah, missed it... but gosh, "cool cat's" company has almost better looking badges than my last department...
WHY would anyone want to do that job for the pittance they pay, anyway?
I usually find disassembling it and then being frustrated as bubblegum trying to put it back together is the best way to keep it from working...hence why we moved on to a Mk IVand I'll then counter with a Ruger Mk2 target pistol
how does one plan to jam that action?
