Ahh, no.

I've not heard of a female losing her thumb while shooting the S&W .460 Magnum, but an idiot from Arkansas did and is in the process of suing S&W for his own stupidity.

The gap between the cylinder and the forcing cone (where the bullet goes when it leaves the cylinder and heads down the barrel) discharges a very powerful blast of gas and unburned powder that escapes to the left and right of the handgun.

That escaping gas and unburned powder is powerful enough to sever the thumb from a person (well in the case of the .460 or .500 S&W it is) if the thumb is high and forward of the cylinder.

The cylinder on a S&W revolver only rotates when it is open and you turn it to load it or prior to being fired; when manually cocking the hammer or when pulling the trigger double action to fire. Once the hammer has fallen and the revolver has discharged the cylinder won't turn again unless manually cocked or if the trigger is pulled double action.

You got it right. In Arizona, with a bunch of drunk idiots and a lot of guns, we see tons of injuries like this.

Re: Thumb Vs S&W 460 Magnum

Has anyone here ever tried a .460 S&W Mag?
I tried a .454 Cassul (the .460 is the magnum-version of it) and this cartridge is really awesome :D

Yes. The ammunition is very expensive unless you reload yourself but it's an awesome revolver for deer hunting and is quite accurate.

Re: Thumb Vs S&W 460 Magnum

Sorry, Dude, but that's not the way it happened. As you can see from the location of her left thumb, it is less than 1 inch from the barrel/cylinder gap. The .460 S&W Magnum is a high pressure round, running close to 65,000 psi. The very hot, high pressure jet of gas eminating from that gap upon firing is what caused the traumatic amputation of her thumb. She is not holding the pistol in the correct way. It is a very heavy pistol, and I suppose she figured she could support it better with her left hand foward, supporting the lower frame. She should have had someone who knows proper shooting proceedure to guide her. I would guess that the shortened thumb (unless it was surgically re-attached) will be a constant reminder of her f***-up.

Remember the recent pic of the worker guy getting his head stuck and flattened in that big roller thingy in the factory? Same idea, different dumbass. I remember some hippie at my old work got his dreads caught in the metal sander/grinder. Whoops. Dummy. So yes, pinched is correct, you get a cookie.
