It will foul the reload on a semi automatic if your finger manages to interupt the recoil/chambering. I'd think you would be better off doing this against an semi-auto. I don't think a revolver would be as effected. If all you are doing is trying to stop a second shot. A hole in your hand is better than your head. The projectile would be disturbed enough by back pressure that some of it's force would be taken away. The bullet wouldn't reach the velocity it normaly would, but it would still ruin your day.

IIRC, a couple years ago a banger in my town blew his hand to pieces trying out a homemade silencer.
