Besides, when you make references like that it would be extremely helpful if you included a direct link to the case or cases that you are referencing. Otherwise it is just something I read on the internet, not necessarily true.

Any gun I would use in a defensive situation would be in full battery with the safety off regardless of the specific design. Screw the prosecutor.

As to shooting fast and accurately , take a look at Gary Miculek, 12 shots on target with a double action S&W revolver in under 4 seconds. Don't sell yourself short, you can learn to shoot well too (maybe not as well as Miculek, but better than you are now!)

well said Viking! well said. comes back to what my father use to say, " better to be judged by twelve, than carried by six"

correction: it's Jerry. and look up Ed McGivern. one hell of a shooter of revolvers. even faster than Jerry Miculek on many things.

I am what you would call one of the younger shooters, and although I own several Semi-autos, I prefer my Revolvers. This black one is my very first hang gun. It is a Colt peacekeeper in 357. I have shot this probably one more than all my other guns put together.
The other one is my Smith and wesson in 686 in 357. I use this to carry openly when hiking and snowshoeing in the winter.

And this one I bought for deer hunting. But now use it for back packing here in Alaska. Its my Smith and Wesson in 629 44 magnum.
