I have semi autos and revolvers. The advantages of the semi auto are magazine capacity and quick reload. The advantage of the revolver is the ability to function with various types of ammunition. There are 19 cartridges that will work in a 357 magnum revolver (most are obsolete) and it does not depend on certain power levels to function. It really does not care if you are shooting a shot load, 38spl wad cutter or a 357 HP in any weight. Revolvers can jam and when they do you will not clear it without tools. I had a 44 mag primer back out on a live factory load and it took the range master and I over 20 minutes to get it unstuck. That is very rare. Do not go Hollywood with a revolver and flip the cylinder closed. Fastest way there is to screw it up. Proper maintenance is required for any gun and that does not spray it every so often. Keep oil out of your chamber or chambers as it will kill ammo. Ammo does not like oil and especially does not like spray cleaners.

I'd run several different loads through that XD. Owned on for many years and never heard of a feed issue in this platform.

The KT...well, they are know to be finicky at times.

I've carried my Charter Arms Off Duty .38 Special for the last ten years. We practise every three weeks. No problems thus far.
