It's been a while since I made any lessons on some weapons that are amongst the popular category. I thought today would be a good day to make a couple tuts on two firearms. I will start with "how to draw a revolver", step by step. This silver colored handgun is one of the first weapons that police used and still use today. .38 Specials, and Smith & Wesson where and still are one of the best manufacturers of handgun revolvers. Drawing a revolver should be pretty simple especially since I made sure to keep the lesson easy enough for all to try. If there is a particular firearm that you would like to see a lesson on, just let me know.
