I’d like to know what the actual experience here is on the comparative reliability of autos vs. revolvers. For this 'Fail to Fire' includes any and all causes; misfeeds, safety problems, bad ammo, whatever.
How many have an auto(s) and never experienced a Fail to Fire.

ive had revolvers and semi autos jam. revolvers can have issues with rounds if the rim area is out of size or the bullet is over length preventing the cylinder from turning. same can be said of semi autos.
debris can get in the actions of either and jam up the works.
properly maintained quality semis and revolvers with good ammo will function flawlessly.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
I have an auto and a revolver. My revolver has NEVER failed to fire.
The auto has always fired but it has jammed trying to eject. And I think it's mostly my fault such as limp wristing the gun, not allowing it to 'do it's thing' properly by holding it in the correct position.

i found this hard to answer. i have multiple personal semi autos, and revolvers. only once have i had a problem with a semi. and it was my .22 savage... now. during my military service. i had TONS. of FTF with my rifle. and once in awhile my 240g. but mostly with my rifle. and mostly when i max filled the mags.
Over the years I've had FTF with semi's and wheel guns, expect I've had a lot more with semi auto's but in most cases it was a quick fix (rack the slide to clear a jam). There wasn't an options to chose both so I didn't vote.
