To add: I have an early old model single six. Standard practice before the transfer bar was a 5 round load, hammer on empty cylinder. Once my kids got involved in shooting I opted to send it in to Ruger for plain old safety reasons. It was a win-win for me, true to their word I got my pistol back with with the old parts, I could change her back at anytime I please. I will say the trigger isn't as crisp and is heavier than before, but given its role as fun plinker and teaching platform that I've chose to use it for over the years, safety trumped trigger feel for piece of mind with the youngsters...

Back in the day when my dad was first carrying he carried a .357 6 shot revolver but in more modern times he seems to agree with my choice of a semi-auto with. A 16 rd highcap mag when my dad first started carrying a gun in the 70's and 80's the potential enemy in question was basically just a man but since the mid 90's 1 or 2 shots just won't put some fool strung out on meth on the can take upto 4 shots and if there is more than 1 oponent and all you have is a 6 shot snubby you could be seriously hurt in spite of having already put a couple rounds into said meth addict

I use my .38 Taurus Mdl 85 fully loaded. I also do the same with my S&W Mdl 10-6
.38 I've carried them for many years. No problem.
