There is no sense trying to convince Defender. I have learnd to not even read his posts any more. Bias and tunnel vision are diseases that are very difficult to combat.

Took my dads S&W .357 model 19-3 out Friday and fired a few .38's thru it mild recoil kinda fun to shoot.....more fun then my Airweight with +p's.
his .357 has a 4" barrel with I think is good all around for home and carry.

So... Has anybody suggested anywhere that the OP should maybe go to a gun store that rents guns to try them out? If he goes to such a store or if he goes to a range and asks around people will probably let him try out the different guns that he thinks he might like to own or shoot. That way he gets a really good idea of what, revolver or semi-automatic, will work for him. The debate of revolver vs. semi-automatic is then settled in his mind.
