When firing in the double action mode, be sure that the trigger is released completely to its fully forward position before pulling the trigger for a subsequent shot. If the trigger finger is allowed to interfere with the full recovery of the trigger (preventing it from moving thru about the last one-eighth inch of its forward movement), the trigger cannot be pulled again for another discharge. The trigger must be fully released after each shot is fired. This characteristic is found in all modern double-action revolvers and "double-action only" pistols.
TRIGGER BETWEEN SHOTS
5. DO NOT HOLD THE REVOLVER BY THE BARREL OR CYLINDER WHEN FIRING.
