Shooting through a pocket… revolvers vs semi-automatics

This is not something that we would ever personally recommend for you to try out, and was only carried out on a closed range by a shooting instructor as an object lesson.

It isn’t much of a surprise that the semi-auto got tied up in shredded material as it cycled and failed. This isn’t a condemnation of jacket pocket carry of any handgun, and demonstrates the importance of actually drawing the weapon to better ensure that it cycles properly.
