    Why do they fire their guns into that cylindrical thingy before they go out on patrol and when they come back to the house?

    You never go into a battle without checking and testing your weapon first.

    probably dropping the mag, clearing the chamber, and dry firing to make sure it's empty.

    same thing. empty the cylinder and dry fire into the barrel to make sure there are no rounds. If there happens to be a round, the shit in the barrel makes sure no one gets hurt.

    I'd be surprised if any law enforcement people use revolvers nowadays except as a back up piece though.
