I should have mentioned that my old pin barrel Model 19 does not let the rounds slide against the back plate, and it may have been that the 586 I had just had oversized holes in the cylinder. Not trying to knock other peoples favorites but revolvers are just like anything else, you can't be sure it's going to work every time till you wring it out. I've probably owned about thirty over the years, most did exactly what I needed them to.

put a revolver of any type in a pocket and the outline looks like a gun in your pocket.

when you pocket carry junk gets in the gun. pocket lint is a killer. with a semi auto im assured that no matter what 1 round is going off. with a revolver you get a little lint in the cylinder jamming it up and its a paperweight.

if you carry iwb or owb its a moot point on that issue

im not a fan of the long trigger pulls on da revolvers. if i was going to carry a revolver it would never be a da. while im no fan of the lcp trigger its size is a huge mitigating factor. so when i carry something larger i just dont want to be limited by the fiddly nature of revolvers.

loading a semi auto requires gross muscular skill loading a revolver requires fine muscular skill. the first thing that goes out the window when your faced with a fight or flight situation when the adrenaline gets pumping is fine motor skills. this means if you have to manipulate the firearm its gotten exponentially more difficult trying to get the round bullets in the round holes.

semi auto is easier to use under stress.
You know they make pocket holsters. I have a Blackhawk pocket holster that works for my 637 revo and my 938 semi

I agree. I pocket carry a lot too and the Blackhawk holsters work fine for me most of the time. They seem to keep most of the lint out. But then again I've taken my PF9 apart before and found lint on the inside of the slide and all around the hammer. I'd be more worried about it jamming up and not functioning from pocket lint than a revolver. There's a whole lot more moving parts in the semi to get gunked up.

Also when they print, my semis print like a semis, not phones. I'm sure a revolver would print like a revolver. My buddy pocket carries a tiny 5 shot.22 revolver when we're in the boat and it doesnt print at all its so small. So I don't think that printing while pocket carrying is a good argument for or against revolvers.

Just sayin' the pocket holster helps keep some of thew dirt our and will help with printing some. Works for me anyway.

BTW, you asked about a small revo for a center console. The little Smith I mentioned in the earlier post is around 350 new. A 5 round +p 38 makes a pretty good little shooter .

Default My Main Reason For Not Carrying A Revolver

When I shoot a revolver double action I tend to drop the muzzle on release of the trigger thus shooting low...sometimes very low. No telling what I would do under extreme pressure.....

No problem with my Glock or 1911.

If you are aiming center-of-mass then you should still hit 'em on the 'nads!

That's just a training issue. Obviously carry whatever you shoot the best.

What?

It doesn't really matter if you leave a spent casing at the scene after a self defense shooting (they'd probably take the shell regardless). Your not talking about leaving the scene are you? THAT could get you in to some seriously deep water with the law unless you are forced to leave the scene for your own protection.
