I'll take a more "expensive" handgun vs. cheaper any day, 9 out of ten. I have all brands of revolvers and have been a shooter/owner 35plus years. I've been fortunate in that any firearm I've ever pulled in offense or defense had my confidence, never a jam or misfire in a "dire' emergency. 999 out of 1000times, who knows exactly, I didn't need to fire. So, who really knows if the weapon would've functioned or not since the trigger wasn't pulled. important to me was, all the other times I had practiced and used the weapon it worked. My revolvers, Blackhawk, smith, charter, centerfires, all are about same age and all work perfectly since the day they were purchased. Look terrific too. My semi's,smiths, rugers, springfields, colt's, list goes on, over the years, all of them have needed parts, but, I shoot the heck out of them vs. revolvers anyhow.
