When this piece of bi-metal half moon comes loose from a grip panel, it can fall/wedge between the frame and mainspring and cause the revolver to lock up not allowing the hammer to cock. You can see on the edge of the half moon piece where the mainspring was cutting into it as it kept it from functioning. Stuff does happen...

FWIW, I own more revolvers than I do semi-autos.

I will never deny that things happen sometimes. I've even seen Fords breakdown on occasion.

All machines break. It is just a matter of when.

You go with what you know and what you trust. I have revolvers and pistols that I shoot on a regular basis, I carry a 1911, but I would have no problem carrying my S&W model 60, or if I could hide it, my 65-2. (If I had to)

I have equal numbers of revolvers and autos, They are mostly middle of the road stuff S&W,Colt and Ruger Revolvers.S&W,Colt,Sig,and STI autos.
I have had autos fail to feed at matches easy to clear and go.
I had one fail to fire with a revolver (Colt Python) that caused a complete shut down. Popped the end off the firing pin.
I like both but I find that auto malfunctions are generally easier to correct than Revolvers.

Best Speed-Loaders I've ever used! Tell them you saw it on the FireArmsTalk.com and they should advertise here!

5 Star Firearms just North of Chicago. Great bunch of guys, during that heavy snowstorm last winter they got to the shop, packed my order and shipped it when everyone else was stuck shoveling! I highly recommend them.

Take this from a guy who's experienced a catastrophic failure in a ruger blackhawk.

Murphy doesn't care what kind it is.
