Luckily, I did not place my left hand in that position. It took only one round to convince me that I probably was not brave enough to fire another round. After that, the 44 mag felt mild, and my 40S&W felt like a 22.

Yes, reaper it is not a good idea to put your tumb in front of the cylinder of the pistol.
