So recently purchased a 22 heritage revolver and am loving it. My only question before I take it to the range is what happens if it misfires or hangfire a? I know 22 is very susceptible to this and with a revolver was curious what the procedure was to handle it?
I know if I hear a click no bang and no ejection in semi auto wait 3-5 seconds then re-rack a new round. Pop no bang wait 10-15 seconds and strip the gun cause it’s probably a squib. But in a revolver how do I handle it? My revolver uses an ejection rod to empty the cylinder so i can’t empty it quickly and rack a new round. I know to always keep it pointed in a safe direction incase it decides to go off.
I just don’t want the cylinder to spin and then have the round cook off when it’s not aligned with the barrel. That would be a bad day… Suggestions, comments, questions anything would be helpful. Just want to be safe about it.
