The tweeter isn't precise about what happened, but the photo doesn't leave much to the imagination. Things happen fast when you get careless.

From the angle and location of the wound, I wonder if he was trying to perform a press check by using the slide serrations near the muzzle?

I've heard of two guys around here who have shot themselves in their hands doing that....

My dumb *** did similar as a wee boy using a Crosman 357 CO2 pellet gun. Only, I wasn't cleaning it, I put my hand directly in front of the muzzle and pulled the trigger. See, I was testing the CO2 power against my hand since my shots were dropping early, and I thought I verified the cylinder insert that holds the pellets (just like a real wheelgun) was empty. It wasn't. Pellet ripped a little U channel out the side of my birdie finger. I nearly puked.
