I don't want to carry a revolver ever. I love my striker fire hand guns. Is that bad? I didn't even test with a revolver. Just not my thing.
Different people lean opposite ways on this.
Those who really understand handguns tend to prefer the semi's, especially 9mm's.
Those who are really new at it tend to prefer revolvers, especially 38's.
So in that sense you have instead gravitated to the more complex of the two right away, as well as jumped right up to the heaviest calibres of all the choices available.
That is extremely unique.
After you have been shooting awhile it remains to be seen if you will move down to a lighter more manageable calibre.
I was really enthusiastic about the 44 rem mag revolver at first.
After awhile I just wished I had my old 45ACP back however.
Now I have both, and I love the 45ACP more, but there are things in the woods that the 45ACP simply will not do. And for those things I hang onto the 44 mag.
One thing to remember is that you also need to be able to quickly draw and shoot. And it may not be as easy to quickly fire a big pistol compared with a smaller one.
Another thing to remember is that if you are ever up against several assailants at once, you need to be able to fire rapidly. And it may not be as easy to fire rapidly with a heavy calibre pistol or revolver.
You skipped testing the lite 9mm's. Next in line is a tie for the 40 and the 45. After that comes the 10mm. Then the 357. Then the 44. Then finally the 50. Maybe you can handle the 50 just fine, but one of the smaller loads may be better for drawing quickly and shooting, and for continuing to shoot.
It's just a matter of time though. You will eventually find out. It's not necessarily "bad."
