I can conceal a J frame much better than many autos, wearing light clothes. My winter wear includes a 1911, summer time is 5 shot .38sp. Enough power, points great for me, and hides excellent. I know it will fire with a squeeze, never had a FTE with it, great carry piece.

Also revolvers don't care what kind of bullets you put in them. Hollow point, wadcutters, hot loads, mild loads, you will know that it will cycle to the next chamber. A semi-auto can be very picky what you feed it. The semi-autos are dependant on the recoil spring to properly eject the spent catridge along with many other factors such worn recoil spring, limp wrist and many other factors. Not to say revolvers have their own mechanical failures as well, but it is very rare unless you just abuse it and don't properly maintain it. Obviously different size loads have different effects. However there are advantages of semi-autos over revolvers. i guess it really is personal preference. I personally love them both and own several of both. But a revolver sure is pretty to look at.
