This Double Tap of a Smith & Wesson 500 Revolver Will Give You Chills

double tap of a smith & wesson 500 revolver

This shooter of the mighty Smith & Wesson 500 is in for a nasty surprise.

When he tries to fire one shot, another is triggered. This double tap of a Smith & Wesson 500 Revolver could have been fatal.

Youtuber David Alcantar shared a video of one very nasty shooting accident. When this shooter tried to fire only one round from the huge Smith & Wesson 500 revolver, it doubled and shot another bullet.

This shooter was firing very heavy 700 grain cast bullets that are the most brutal in recoil. When the revolver recoiled violently back the shooter gripped hard and inadvertently pulled the trigger a second time. That exact type of accident is said to have claimed lives already when the revolver discharged a bullet into a shooter’s head on the doubled shot.

This shooter could have really had a bad day but luckily was unscathed. Always be aware of what can happen and stay safe out there.
