I prefer revolvers meself. Although if I can ever get my hands on a Smith and Wesson gold plated and engraved 1911 I may change my tune.
I carry a Uberti .45 LC on my right side, and a Colt Walker blackpowder on my left, butt-forward for left or right-handed draw. Both in western style holsters, no safety other than a thumb snap on the Uberti. My wife thinks it's overkill, I say it balances my gunbelt. With only one gun onit starts sagging and draggin' my pants down, which gets annoying fast.
I trust my revolvers way more than semi-autos, and I can hit anything with either of mine that anybody can hit with an auto. And if I run out of ammo, then I can just beat the bad guy to death with the Walker. Heavy old hunk of steel.
And to anyone with any beefs with revolvers or western rigs, here's two things:
Thing 1: I dress casually sophisticated, and I don't walk around with my trigger fingers a'twitchin, so don't say I'm a wannabe gunslinger.
Thing 2: If youthink somebody can take my guns becausemy holsters have no safeties... people have been carrying these guns this way a damn long time. I seriously doubt anyonecould even get their little finger onone of myguns before their looking down the barrel of the other. And if someone did manage to take my gun, I'd deserve to be shot.
