I own a Winchester 1894 model .357 magnum rifle. If anyone cares to test out the theory of stopping a bullet with one's finger by bocking the barrel, then they are quite welcome to try it! Personally, I wouldn't try stopping the same bullet standing one mile from the scene.

If the .357 bullet is a copper jacketed, full charge round, it will pass through almost two railway sleepers, one in front of the other, so I guess a finger is going to cause very little resistance, but hey, I aint tried it so maybe it's true!
If anyone does try it, please let us all know!

Tony

If you put your finger in a gun barrel the only thing you are going to acromplish is A+B+C A)get you finger blown off B)Send chunks of gun flying in any direction and C) Killing both people instead of one!!!:)

I'm in the army and heard of this one and eddirichard is correct. Going on memory and second hand knowledge here. Works for only certain type of pistols with slides. The only one I know of is the Browning 9mm and you have to push back slightly on the slide. It is supposed to stop the action all together.

You could try with a fake round, just check to see if the firing pin hit the percussion cap.

even with ablank cartridge there is a massive amount of gas produced, put your finger over the end of the barrel and you WILL lose it [V]

But could you get away with it if you had a cartridge with a detonator (percussion cap) but no charge?
