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.

Plus be aware many still know exactly how to use them

I love my autos, use one for CCW. But if it came down to one firearm it would be my 44 Redhawk. I've never had ftf in my autos so I trust them to do the job if necessary but believe me for real problems, 4 or 2 legged, I know the Redhawk would take care of them with ease. Over twenty years of use, hundreds of rounds of high velocity 245 gr Keith type SWC hard lead bullets and everything is as tight as when I bought it. Yeah, it does have that "What the hell was that?" blast. Not to mention it will punch through materials that most standard auto rounds will only put a small dent in.
