It is not how many shots you have available that makes the difference, but rather making each shot count.
yes the technology behind revolvers, lever actions and bolt actions is dated, but it works. i really don't see any of them going away anytime soon. yes they are dated, yes i like them, and yes i will still keep buying them!
a revolver with speedloaders can be reloaded pretty fast if you practice with them. and i agree, shot placement is more important than the number of rounds carried in the cylinder or the magazine. i think there are those who use high capacity pistols as a crutch for accurate shooting and regular practice. i say practice with the gun you depend on to save your life on regular basis, maybe at least once a month.
