Does anyone know how to upload that video at https://v.redd.it/c49nar79ep331 here?
I'm thinking of learning how to shoot guns, and want to know what went wrong.

It slipped through the top, but you're right, it could have gone much, much worse. My amateur prediction is that she wasn't gripping it tight enough, not even close since her hands barely moved while the shotgun slipped without struggle.

I'll add to the other person below. It's her grip and the grip shape of the firearm. The index finger isn't what I was initially worried about, it was her thumb. The index finger would get pushed back, but it would bend naturally out of the way. The thumb however would bend against natural motion and could easily dislocate or amputate it. The grip shape and how lightly she was holding it saved this from occurring as the firearm went up and then out following the grip shape.

Amazed that her thumb is unscathed
