Methods of re loading a lever action rifle.
I sure this question has been asked before and I ask this purely out of curiosity. Apart from being inherently unsafe and a practise that would get you banned from any well run range, was 'spin cocking' in the True Grit manner ever a recognised method?
Never mind how cool it may look, the idea of pointing a powerful gun at yourself while reloading it, and at the same time having a less than secure grip on it seems to me a questionable practice.
All replies, however scornful, received with thanks.
