As far as centerfire handguns go,I only own 2,one revolver and one pistol,both are S&W and both have never jammed ever in anyway.I have had other centerfire pistols that jammed all the time,and I have had rimfire revolvers lock up or parts bust off,and I have a rimfire pistol that almost never has a hangup.Pistols AND revolvers exist to this day because they both work well.I like pistols because of their simple durability and I like revolvers because of their magnum calibers and long civilian and LE history.If I could only own one handgun it would be a revolver because that's just my style,not because a revolver is necessarily better.

In the hot and humid summers, we go about scantily clad, thus the needs are something smaller, lighter and typically a polymer to resist the rust from the sweat. Also scumbags will be wearing less, so you dont need the "punch" to get through all the layers, so a 9mm will suffice
Just to clarify one thing about me living in Florida. I have lived in the Northeast part of the United States for 52 years, so I'm well aware of the very cold weather and the change of seasons. My carry gun is my carry gun no mater where I have lived or what the weather might be. It's not a matter of me not understanding, It's more about my preference for my EDC!

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.

Come up to the panhandle in January. Although we do not have snow, it is still too cold to wear shorts and sandals.

Depending on a lot of factors, I have found that one handgun does not "fit" all the time. Just like shoes, loafers have no place on the beach and sandals have no place in a formal dinner.

I prefer a full sized 1911, but it is kinda hard to hide it in my already stuffed Speedo.

i like both, revolvers and semi autos, and own more semi autos than revolvers. both have their pros and cons. that said, i plan on still adding more revolvers to my collection though. IMO, it also comes down to personal preference and what we shot growing up. my dad had more semi autos when i was younger and so as a youngster, i shot more of them. so naturally when i started buying pistols many years ago, i went with the semi autos. years ago i got a couple of good deals of revolvers and so i have added them in as well.
