Man blows off thumb firing .460 S&W

Apparently some guy thought it was a good idea to hold a S&W .460 revolver like a rifle and he had his thumb directly by the gap between the barrel and the cylinder. Obviously, the escaping gasses did some very serious damage.

He took it to court and tried to sue S&W but failed.

Here is the story.

Too bad he wasn't doing a speed rock and fried his testicles so that he couldn't breed a new generation.

This has been posted here before, in another forum. It's also not really L&CR fodder.
