My hands are to big for me to be comfortable shooting revos. Shot the rhino which was kinda cool but didn't like how the grip felt on that or any revo so I don't shoot them. Thumbs forward on them, I don't trust it my thumbs would be to far forward if I tried so I just don't fuck with them.

My apologies for posting a slight distraction, but I have noticed what appears to be an inconsistency.  Twinkie dislikes the same old tired short jokes as they pertain to TSO and Jae, but he refers to Mr. Giddings as a midget in the tags.  I am somewhat confused by this as it would seem to demonstrate a not insignificant amount of hypocrisy.  So your short friends are vertically challenged, and those you dislike are fucking midgets.  Yes?
 
Oh, I almost forgot.  I love the J frame with thumbs forward. 
 
Sorry for the interruption.  Carry on.


You are seriously flirting with my 'ignore' button. And I haven't 'ignored' anyone yet. You could be the first!

II suggest re-assessing your purpose.

FWIW, I shot my revos the way he does, and my thumb turned horrifically black. I wish I took pics because it looked like it was dead.
Anyone else think this is the way to go on revolvers?
This seems a good time to mention Caleb is gay and so are revolvers. In fact, just troll the shit out of everything in this thread or the video. No one gives a shit about how to shoot a revolver because revolvers are stupid. Watching this shit makes me want to sell my sweet 686 Pro and throw the money at strippers or something.


You are like, a revolver nihilist.

Caleb is dumb. A special kind of dumb, like the stupid kind. He thinks a Ruger Security Six is a competitive revolver so that's all you need to know.

Twinkie is retarded.  You have to give him some slack.

With semis I don't find it difficult to nail down a thumbs forward grip, but with revo, there's a very tiny window of available space to get it done. Plus, having the other thumb up high the way he does, the pressure plate smacks the shit out of me. So, I just tuck them.

This thread should die.

Not because I think revolvers are dumb. I like actual revolvers. They are cool.

Revo as a division is dumb as fuck. That shit got proven obsolete about a week after Chippy McCormick and Devil figured out how to get 8 rounds in a single stack mag. That was about 30 years ago.

I would say we are at the 3% participation capacity that Revo usually gets.

The first 'you've been warned'.  That didn't take long.

 

 

More pertinent - he's got little midget thumbs, and even those little stumps were black (3:34-3:37).  Trying that would be the hard way to learn that your revos cylinder gap is a little too thumbnail peelingly wide?

Might I suggest a extra dose of HTFU for you, sir?

Twinkie, quit stoking fires, that's how feelings get hurt.


I forgot to add that they now make a 640 pro. A J-frame with real sights. It's like the accu-shadow of pocket revolvers. It makes all other pocket revolvers obsolete.

From a guy who loves 625s and 686s with 4 inch barrels. Feel free to trade those monstrosities for a couple fat bags of dicks and proceed to gobble down.

Maybe I should show more respect to an IDPA five gun master.

Maybe you should show more respect for everyone? I hear Caleb and Ayoob are 5 gun M's too. Never said I like a 625... those suck. Too big, and not that much fun to shoot. Getting good enough with one was work and burned me out slightly at the time. Last shot fired form one was String 3, Stage 3 of the IDPA Classifier. Borrowed gun.

 

Shit, I'm considering selling the 686 for money towards a Stock Deaux, but I have ammo and a 650 conversion as well. All for one fucking gun. Yech. then again, my .45ACP setup is for one gun I never shoot, either... so I guess I like being stupid.

 

Dat gun, tho...

I'm good on the respect thing. I'm pretty fine with being an ass that says what he wants. It's what brought me here.

I'd dump that 1911 though. I dig the the ball cut, but that rail...co'mon storm trooper.

Rail makes it more heavier-er up front.

 

Also, it was stupid-cheap and my going-away present to myself at my previous job. Was harder to get a holster for, though.

I thought thumbs forward on Revo's were a no-go.
