Refresh my memory, how old was the 1911 last year? Seriously, I've got both, use both and wouldn't think twice about EDC with either/or, (wearing a .38 snubby as I type). While not entirely foolproof, wheelguns tend to be safer, more dependable and user friendly, especially with novice shooters. IMHO reloading's not an issue. If you're at the range, who cares how long it takes. In a stress situation, if you need to reload, it's not self defense, it's a gun fight. In that case, I don't care what you're packing, you better be fighting your way to a long gun.

Both systems have theyre plusses and minuses, i like both systems, and i dont think youre retarded for asking, its whatever works best for you, and the situation/circumstances, that said, when the mags run out the revolver is quicker to reload then the magazine... i carry my blued 4" ruger police service six, .357 mag with wood grips on a near daily basis [and im able to conceal it too]...

Thinking you've never seen a IPSC Open Revolver Class match
6 will do just fine with the right revolver in the right hands

When arthritis takes over and you can no longer reliably rack an automatic, a wheel gun keeps you in the game.
Ruger Security Six .357 mag, S&W 638 .38 Spl, Ruger Single Six .22/.22mag.

Because I've never seen any black & white movies where the sheriff and bad guy are walking down the towns dirt road toward one another, and drawing semi-autos out of their cowboy holsters.

Seriously though, this is my home defense go to gun with CT laser sights. No fuss no muss, just pull the bang switch where the little red dot is. Target wise, I'm a much more accurate shot with a revolver than my 1911's and Glocks. A revolver is a thing of beauty! You can sleep with it and not worry about contraception. It eats very little and won't get fat on you. It doesn't get moody and pout. It will be faithful and never voluntarily leave you. It's a trophy piece other men will lust for. And you can caress it all you want and never buy it roses! What more could you ask for?

I'm personally a big fan of revolvers.

Easy to use, reliable, and can shoot calibers that are impractical for autoloaders.

I rotate a .38 snub as a carry gun along with a 1911 and Glock 27.

My 6" 686 is what I keep in the nightstand I shoot it well and like the 357 mag. It's my first choice if I can't get to a long gun.

I don't feel under gunned with a revolver and speed loaders.

I believe that the revolver is a viable training device for anyone having problems with the basics of shooting.

I have mostly auto's but when it comes to hiking it is always the revolver that goes along. I can load snake shot to 357 in my SP101 and it does not care.

Auto loaders are great, I have a few and want many more. Now wheel guns are great too, some people just don't feel comfortable with a safety or having to change mags. I like to carry a .357 every now and then depending on the perceived need, or a .40 or a .45.

I love to shoot a friends .22 revolver for plinking, I would love to get my Grandpa's S&W.32 into shooting shape, and I just like to shoot that .357 mag. snubbie for the boom boom effect sometimes.

Don't rule out something that you have never tried, that is how I found a passion for a 1911, but that is another story.
