There are a few things to keep in mind when holding a revolver.
First, grip the gun high on the backstrap (the part of the gun that curves inward toward the shooter’s hand). This will help you control recoil and keep the barrel pointed downrange.
Second, position your off-hand so that it supports the gun forearm—this will also help reduce recoil.
Finally, keep your trigger finger straight and outside the trigger guard until you’re ready to shoot.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best way to hold a revolver will vary depending on the individual and the specific gun. However, there are a few general tips that can help you hold a revolver securely and effectively:
1) Grip the gun tightly with both hands. Make sure your fingers are not wrapped around the trigger guard but are positioned above it instead.
2) Keep your arms parallel to your body. Do not let them droop down or extend outwards.
3) Point the gun in a safe direction and be prepared to fire. Remember that revolvers can be inaccurate, so aim carefully.
4) Be aware of your surroundings and what is beyond your target. Do not shoot recklessly or without considering the consequences.

The revolver is held with one hand, and the shooting arm should be bent so that the elbow is close to the ribcage. Place your index finger on top of the trigger, and your middle, ring, and pinky fingers should be wrapped around the grip of the gun. Keep your thumb pointed up along the side of the gun.

There are a few things to consider when holding a revolver.
First, grip the gun with your dominant hand as close to the trigger as possible.
Second, place your other hand around the gun so that your thumb and fingers are in line with the front of the cylinder.
Finally, keep your arms parallel to your body and press both of your hands against the gun. This will help you maintain control while shooting.
