Whose dumb idea was this?
I get very angry when I see unthinking men get a good laugh out of handing a heavy-recoiling firearm to a slightly-built woman and enjoying her pain and humiliation when she can't control it. I've written about that before in relation to shotguns, here and here.
This morning, via an e-mailed link, I came across this animated .GIF image, taken from a video file.
Quite apart from the very real danger if she'd kept hold of the trigger while the revolver pivoted around her hands, it's likely that lady will never again want to touch a handgun with any meaningful performance - whether necessary for her defense or not. Way to go, idiot(s) who put it in her hands! The least you could have done was load it with lower-performance ammunition, so that it wouldn't kick quite so hard . . . but no, that wouldn't have been so amusing, would it?
