I guess one could say revolver handguns are dated technology, but you could also say that about lever-action and bolt-action rifles. All of these designs are time tested and proven and we just plain like them. It is not how many shots you have available that makes the difference, but rather making each shot count.

I've carried a wheelgun for about 15 years, first it was my single action Blackhawk .357, next I carried a GP100 .357. Both are accurate and never had a jam on either, totally reliable for self defense. In most situations if you need to fire more than once your in a war, LOL, but reloading a double action is just as quick as a semi auto using speed loaders. I'd say its all personal preference as far as type of gun you carry. Now i carry a XD.45, compact and with 13+1 i'm loaded for bear!

I have a Ruger GP100 that I can load pretty quick with speed loaders. With any of my guns my first and foremost concern would be making the first shot count, and every one after that if necessary, not just spraying lead.

Here's my take. I also discussed my opinion a while back with a past co-worker on the streets that is an instructor in various modalities and retired Army SF. He agreed wholeheartedly.

While it's nice and even comforting to some to carry as much capacity as possible, for the average civilian, if you need 10, 13, or 15 rounds at any given time, it's a pretty good bet you went somewhere you had no business being in the first place.

By the way, he chooses to carry a Charter Arms J frame .38. I have a few semis that I carry depending on where I intend going and/or what I'm wearing. I also carry a J frame .357 Taurus. My wife kinds prefers her Taurus 85 Ultra Lightweight over her Bersa Thunder.

Still not for nothing, like Clint Smith says, "A gun is supposed to be comforting, not comfortable". Carry what makes you feel secure and what you are proficient with.

Because nothing, nothing in this world feels anything like shooting a genuine Colt Single Action Army or Python.

This is an old Model Three-Screw .357 Magnum Blackhawk. It was converted to .44 Special by Dave Clements, and case colored by Doug Turnbull. Grips are walnut by Cary Chapman of CLC Custom Grips.

I'm far more familiar with the Single Action than any other type of handgun.
