    In this day and age of better technology, I just don't see why people bother with revolvers. I find it confusing.



    Automatics have better firepower, are lighter, more accurate and are just all around cooler guns.

    Maybe it's time we move on.

    Despite the apparent trollOP above, I wanted to say -- in defense of revolvers -- that even if I had TWOsemi-autos (one in each hand) I probably would not get even one shot off if I were facing someone like Ed McGivern and his one revolver...I'd be riddled with bullet holes before I knew I was dead.



    Revolvers still have a lot going for them.

    Yep, well, to each their own. I have heard that some people still carry derringers even...well, that's still better than nothing isn't it...

    I'd rather have 2 shots than 0.

    SemiAuto4Life is wasting his time. His preconceived notions of gun owners being quick tempered and just plain stupid rednecks, as is evidenced by his opinions on the board he came from, shine light on his small minded intellect and his sophomoric behavior. SemiAuto4Life should get a life and stop wasting his time posting nonsensical opinions. His hopes to stir the proverbial pot are futile and fall upon deaf ears.

    These people are just looking for a good time at the expense of others. ANY post with a rebuke against them is a boon for them as it is exactly what they are looking for. Report their posts and do not respond to them in any manner.

    Maybe so, but it's been true for centuries, now, that even a breechloader beats a fist or a foot.

    Malfunction drill, semi auto:
    Rack slide, eject round, load new round. May need to drop mag and insert new one.

    Malfunction drill, wheelgun:
    Pull trigger again.

    Wheel guns have their place.

    While semi-autos are the gun of choice due to the number of rounds it can hold... a wheel gun has its benefits.

    Wheel guns are not prone to double feeds, fail to load, fail to extract problems.

    When properlyloaded.. you simple pull the trigger and you are pretty much guaranteed to get a shot off.

    They have the same trigger pull each and every time too.

    I have a few wheel guns and enjoy them.

    Ilove my baby glock.....!!

    But of course... I am referring to the other "sub standard" guns out there that have two different trigger pulls.

    There's a old saying; "Keep it simple stupid". I only have revolvers anymore because they're simple and therefore reliable. IMHO, "high tech", like in autos,(or with anything else for that matter)means "prone to malfunctions."

    You are right... With more part comes more problems.

    Revolvers are basic and simple. It does not take but 2 seconds to show someone how to load and fire. No having to remember to chamber a round, Wonder if you have in in the chamber. Teaching someone how to do a press check. What to do if it goes "click."

    Witha revolver.. you just pull the trigger again and the cylinder rotates. Hopefully on a live round and not shot #7.

    I've never had a single malfunction with my semi-auto in thousands and thousands of rounds. My gf's brother has a revolver that FTF's at least twice per cylinder full.

    It's all about the quality of the gun. You get what you pay for. Simplicity has nothing to do with it.

    That sounds like the striker aint fully hitting the primer. Is your GF's brother using reloads? On some reloads the primer can be sunk into the casing a tad more than others and that could cause the striker to not fully impact the primer. I've never had a single FTF but I use factory ammo only and that could be why.

    As for the quality of the gun... The Ruger revolversI have are very fine quality, and I've had zero problems with them. Or were you implying that since autos are generally more costlythan the good 'ol simple revolver that they're thus higher quality? Hmmm...?

    BTW, I have no problem with semi-auto pistols, anymore than I have a prob with sports cars, speedboats, etc. To each their own. Folks will use what suits them and that's what choice is all about. I choose revolvers, apickup truck, and a canoe.
