This Shooter’s Day with a .500 S&W Revolver Was Almost Lethal

What was supposed to be a fun shoot almost ended in a tragedy.

The shooter of this .500 S&W Magnum revolver had a double fire and lost control of the revolver.

Witness this .500 S&W Magnum revolver double fire that almost shot this gunner in the head.

What is actually happening in this shooting video, anyway? Well this shooter is firing the big bore .500 Smith and Wesson Magnum that makes the .44 Magnum look like a cap gun. His ammunition was hard recoiling 700 grain Underwood Ammunition that speeds along at 1200 feat per second. What happens next in this video shared by YouTuber Dan is downright scary.

When this shooter fires off one round, the recoil pushes back hard into the shooter’s hand. He inadvertently pulls the trigger a second time and the big revolver twists out of his grasp and the muzzle is pointed at his head.

How close was this guy to catching a big .500 Smith and Wesson Magnum bullet to the head? Watch this video and witness this almost fatal mistake in action.
