In this clip I’m going to show you how to
load and unload your Smith and Wesson 642 revolver. This firearm is a very easy gun
to operate, and it doesn’t have a magazine to load or unload, and it doesn’t have a lot
of buttons or anything. And that’s why we’re doing both loading and unloading in one clip.
This firearm basically has a cylinder, and the cylinder, if you take a closer look, has–it’s
a five shot revolver. And for that reason, what I like to do with it is hold it in my
hand like I just got done opening it. With my hand through the frame of the revolver,
I like to take each individual round and put in place. Now there are other tools that you
can use, and a more experienced shooter or somebody that may be in the security industry
or would be using this, is a speed loader. And a speed loader is a way that you can put
the rounds in, unlock the rounds, and then you would close the cylinder. That’s the way
you’d load it. Now to unload it what you’ll do is push the cylinder latch, again two fingers
pushing it out, and with your thumb ejecting the rounds out of the cylinder. That’s the
way that you’ll load and unload your Smith and Wesson 642 revolver.
