never mind. i had a long post that i was going to write our, but i have better things than trying to school you on the merits of the differences of revolvers and semi-auto pistols.
you somehow must think you are more knowledgeable than some of us as if we are a bunch of newbs to guns. well, first of all i put not one bit of credence in your statements or comments and it seems others don't as well. but you are more than welcome to try and sell it if you can get someone to buy it.
you have a great and wonderful day.
Let's get some things straight. First, my definition of a pistol jam is when the round fails to chamber for firing or the spent casing fails to eject, stopping the pistol from operating. These are both potential problems with semi auto pistols as well as rifles. This does not happen with a revolver. All firearms are capable of having mechanical failures. My point and the link to the article that I posted explains this and states that revolvers are very reliable.
I have fired thousands of rounds through semi auto and auto weapons and have had jams. Revolvers are more reliable. I'm not bashing semi auto's, I have had many over the years and have a Browning HP 9mm that has never jammed and I've also had a Walther's P32 that was prone to jamming.
I was watching a three gun competition on TV and one of the competitors had a jam with his semi auto pistol. He cleared the jam very quickly but it still cost him the win.
