The only thing you really have to make sure you are not doing with a revolver is putting any part of your hand at or forwards of the front cylinder gap (and why you would do this, besides as a mistake, I don't know).

Other than that, why would you hold it any differently than any other handgun?
Winner!!! Also, if you have largish hands you'll want to get a set of grips that cover the backstrap to increase the distance between your hand and trigger to get the pad of your finger onto the tripper. I like Nill grips for this, Jordan style grips work well also, though they are even bigger than the nills (second pic)
