To comply with Section 26850, a safe handling demonstration for a double-action revolver shall include all of
the following steps:
(a) Open the cylinder.
(b) Visually and physically inspect each chamber, to ensure that the revolver is unloaded.
(c) Remove the firearm safety device. If the firearm safety device prevents any of the previous steps, remove the firearm
safety device during the appropriate step.
(d) While maintaining muzzle awareness and trigger discipline, load one bright orange,
red, or other readily identifiable dummy round into a chamber of the cylinder and
rotate the cylinder so that the round is in the next-to-fire position. If no readily identifiable dummy round is available, an empty cartridge casing with
an empty primer pocket may be used.
(e) Close the cylinder.
(f) Open the cylinder and eject the round.
(g) Visually and physically inspect each chamber to ensure that the revolver is unloaded.
(h) Apply the firearm safety device, if applicable. This requirement shall not apply to an Olympic competition pistol if no firearm
safety device, other than a cable lock that the department has determined would damage
the barrel of the pistol, has been approved for the pistol, and the pistol is either
listed in subdivision (b) of Section 32105 or is subject to subdivision (c) of Section 32105.
