    Twirling is cool and is the same as doing drills with a rifle.

    It wasn't about fun or style. It was bored workers in Buffalo Bill's Wild West having lots of free time making their acts better to draw in more audience money.

        I refuse to go by other people's definitions. That's is how we got into troony clown world timeline.
        It is work and profit. Any fun had will be taxed accordingly.

    Modern ideas of firearms safety are highly engrained in the heads of most gun owners. From that viewpoint twirling a revolver is extremely irresponsible because the gun is flagging everyone in the process with the finger on the trigger. It's is harmless if the gun is unloaded of course, but that isn't obvious at a glance nor is it encouraged to assume that a firearm is unloaded. Theoretically it could be somewhat safe to do with a loaded but dewienered single action revolver, but that could still end with an ND of dropped or the hammer gets partially engaged.

    Speaking of which, twirling a revolver creates a risk of dropping it. Revolvers tend not to do well with being dropped repeatedly, so this could be seen as bad form from the standpoint of care and maintenance.

      Not incorrect, but someone doing fun spinning as an act has the expectation that they won't be using a loaded firearm. Unless Revolver Ocelot is going to be played by Alec Baldwin.

      most modern reproductions have the firing pin separated from the hammer eliminating the need for “cowboy carry” but yes you’re right.

      modern firearms safety is mega gay "hurr durr no finger on trigger" "hurr durr don't point that at me please" once you clear a firearm it becomes a toy.

    MGSV should have had a cutscene at Mother Base. Boss is talking to Miller about a mission or something, soldiers running around, ground crew maintaining/loading the helicopter etc, until a lone gunshot rings out followed by a ricochet noise, everyone stops for a second to check their shoulders. Sheepish Ocelot in the background having ND'd into the floor practicing his routine. Everyone goes back to their business with a shrug, happens all the time.

    How does that make you more effective? Why not just twirl ribbons around while wearing spandex if being "stylish" is all you care about? Why even waste money on a gun at all?

    When you've had enough serious accidents in life you permanently lose all interest in looking "cool"

    Because people have gotten autistic about their adherence to gun safety. Yes I know it's dangerous when loaded but I just unloaded it and ammo (sadly) doesn't magically materialize in the chamber of guns when you stop looking at it

      I don't understand the appeal of doing stupid things on purpose for no reason

        It only takes one oopsie I guess I forgot

        If it's an SAO like the SAA, you can do it loaded all day. You're not gonna accidentally wiener the hammer.

    I enjoy doing it and at one point I was doing it so much that I blistered both of my trigger fingers.
    Can't spin sideways well and I'm not brave enough to try juggling, but I can do forward and backward spins easily and can do the roadagents spin too. I can also spin some automatics, and I even figured out how to spin my USP and switch the safety off at the same time by hitting it with the heel of my hand. Can also do a roadagent spin with the USP, though it looks a bit different than the revolver version. My best spinning guns are my Beretta 1935 and my 5.5" Taylor's SAA.
    All of this is done unloaded of course.
