Okay, he deserves to die to whatever that is in his blind spot just for holding that revolver sideways like that.

Actually , sideways firing is not terrible, given weapons other than flintlock.

Sideways firing is good for fast shooting. There is some accruacy lost, but not as profound as you think.

The article goes on to point out that it's very unreliable, not guaranteed and might not even work for some guns. The guy says that it's a theory, but that the practicalities still outweigh the potential positives.

More over there are still issues with several firearms ejecting casing straight into your face.

Granted this guy is using an explosive pistol,is immune to explosions and provided the ammo with his breath.

You can’t really call it dangerous to himself.

I've tried sideways firing (nerf dart gun). The target had about 9 holes where a ring was placed to be knocked through, 8 outside and one dead center.

I tried both that day, trying to hit the center. I wasted about 80 darts at near point blank range, eventually hitting it by tilting sideways. Why? Because I discovered that even though I eyeballed it and it seemed to be centered, the shot was firing above my hand, not centered. Tilting it got it level with my thumb and I hit.

The shot doesn't inherently decrease in accuracy because of sideways tilt. It decreases because the average person doesn't adjust for 90 degree tilt, or the wider fan effect (center of gravity changes so X axis is now Y axis). In other words, if the shooter is inexperienced with firing sideways, the shot will seem less accurate than what they know. "It's less accurate," they conclude. No, it's less accurate because of a learning curve. You have to relearn the firing physics. For example, a real gun (not a nerf gun) gives recoil straight up. In a sideways fire, this is sideways, toward the top of the gun. If you don't learn the physics oddities, then you're working from assumptions that are 90 degrees off, and you will miss.
