Discussion in 'Handguns: Revolvers' started by pairof44sp, Dec 27, 2020.
Things change for safety reasons in the firearms world. Trigger guards have been on guns for centuries before the revolver as we know it was invented. Transfer bars and hammer blocks got put into revolvers for a reason, too. I sure like carrying a revolver with a full load of ammo instead of -1 cartridge due to a safety concern.
And yes, removing front brakes on street ridden motorcycles is stupid no matter how long ago it was done.
But if people want to mod their guns or motorcycles how they see fit, I ain't gonna stop 'em. Doesn't mean they won't get some advice or opinion from me though.
Same here. Never heard of them nor do I want one.
To follow-up my earlier post, I have been handing my USFA Single Actions, recently, and noticed how difficult it was to get my increasingly-arthritic right trigger finger inside the trigger guard, in a hurry. Fortunately, my healthier left hand’s trigger finger remains sufficiently nimble, but, if I were to carry a single action sixgun, for defensive purposes*, on my right side, I might well feel compelled to do some surgery on the trigger guard. A crescent-shaped cut-out, in the right front portion, would be a desirable first step, to try, before “Fitz-ing” the entire lower front portion of the guard.
Best of all would be to have a talented ‘smith, who need not necessarily be a GUNsmith, fashion a larger trigger guard.
None of this post is specific to “slip guns.”
*Fortunately, of course, I own several suitable defensive handguns, designed in the 20th-Century, with trigger guards having sufficient clearance.
I suppose you'd have to carry it with the chamber empty under the hammer since the transfer bar is always in the fire position.
