I love both revolvers and auto's, In fact I love them so much that when I am out in a harsh enviorment I carry them in a shoulder holster. I play in the eastern Oregon desert alot and any exposed weapon picks up alot of sand and other things. I always carry a cutoff tooth brush in the holster with the pistol and I do a quick brush when needed. The biggest mastake is carring an auto without its magazine inserted. Why would you do that? Because the liberial representives of oregon decieded to protect us and even with a concealed license a weapon on a off road vehicle must be empty included the mag.
