Default We all take our chances

We look, decide, pay our money and then take our chances as it comes down to defending our lives with a revolver or semi automatic.
Too each his own.
A cautious man uses both belt and suspenders in defense of his or families lives or just his dignity with fear of pants on the ground
Revolvers for house guns, night stands, under the coffee table, in a kitchen cabinet, out in the reloading room.
Semi auto strong side carry backed up with a J frame Smith in an ankle holster and IF trouble is really expected or anticipated, a shotgun or rifle, IF I can't just go around the problem or not face it in the first place.
First rule of a gun fight, have a gun and hope both you and it are up to the task at hand.
Second rule of being in a gun fight, have your own gun.
Third rule of a gun fight forgot the rest of them

I've never had a problem with a wheel gun not firing EVER.........and were talking I pile of different guns and thousand upon thousands of rounds over the last 30 years

I get what people are saying about revolvers having springs too but as far as reputable manufactures go there's not a snubbi 38 made these days that I wouldn't trust my life to after the first box of rounds and there's not and auto that I WOULD trust my life to after only the first box of rounds

I still prefer an auto but I won't trust a cheap one and I need to put a few hundred rounds threw it without any problems before I really trust it.

Both flat and coil depending on the brand, model. If that spring breaks you are in deep doo doo.

No, Canebrake, I actually thought you were serious. In this day and age when hi-cap autos are everywhere it's not unusual to run into someone that is totally ignorant of the mechanics of the standard revolver. It was merely an attempt to educate through personal experience.

I guess this all boils down to the problems with the written word. Without tone of voice and facial expressions to guide you there really isn't any sure way to detect sarcasm. Sorry to waste your time.

There are good and bad, Revolvers, Pistols, Rifles, and Shotguns. Why do people have to go to the, one is better than the other? Can't one enjoy them all? I have all, and enjoy them all. If I run across a lemon, I get rid of it, or get it fixed, and don't run the other guns down. Any Company that the majority of their products are bad, won't be in Business long.

That was my first thought, but I didn't want to start a Taurus war, it happens.
Say a bad thing about a Taurus and they climb out of the woods.
I knew I wouldn't find a Jennings lover.
