So I was recently given a little heck from a couple of guys for carrying a revolver one guy even asked if I was going to shoot cans of fence post, like the cowboys.

I then informed them that I picked a revolver because I feel that the fact that I don't have tworry about failure to eject or feed or a magazine malfunction makes the gun more reliable. And he said yea but you only have 6 shots.

So I guess his whole point was that capacity is more important than reliability??? I'm really starting to wonder about people?

generally speaking - unless they were your buddies just giving you a hard time (just being guys...) sounds like these guys giving you hell just simply don't know what they're talking about.

Your response next time should be something to the effect of you chose a revolver because you don't need 15 shots like they do, your marksmanship is judiciously on target and your trigger finger is true. You don't need their wimpy plastic frame firearms with a spray and pray defense strategy.

That should shut them up.

Or rile them even more...depending on how full of themselves they really are.


side note: There's nothing wrong with a polymer firearm - truly - but if they want to turn this into a pissing contest...step up to bat...because there's nothing a 15 round firearm can do that a 6 shot revolver can't aside from a Failure to feed, or having something go wrong internally...

They were just a couple of buddies but they were basically saying that revolvers are past their time. I have a feeling that they think that a Glock is they only thing worth havering and if capacity isn't in the 12+ range than you are under gunned lol. I guess I just don't plan on full blown combat anytime soon lol.

Thats a good reason to like them. I just dont have one that is small enough for CC. But i do keep a few stashed around the house. All parts are at rest, so you can leave them loaded forever, No,,,is it cocked, is there one in..safety on, or safety off, etc...Just pick it up, and start squeezin........

To me, there's a few lines of thinking in this:

#1.) You can carry a polymer firearm, be very accurate with it, and have enough rounds to take out several aggressors.

or

#2.) You can carry a revolver, be very accurate with it, and have enough rounds to take out up to 6 aggressors.

All things considered equal - you can't make a wrong choice. Plus, IMO, a nice little Stainless Steel revolver looks 1,000,000 prettier than a square boxy glock.

You very right and I see nothing wrong with choosing to do so. But my whole point on the matter is if your firearm jams or something of that nature the time it takes to clear it could very well cost you your life. Oh and I completely agree about the looks between a stainless revolver and an ugly Glock lol.

I carry a S&W Mdl 36. Have 5 shots.

You carry a Glock with an umpteen round magazine. And have a fail-to-extract on the first shot.


So...... I have a 5 shooter. You have a single shot. Now, what was that you were saying?


Advantage to a revolver- there is no question of reliability of a given cartridge FEEDING in a revolver. If it fits in the cylinder, it's good to go.

For some reason I've never been into revolvers, but in terms of reliability, a revolver does put the mind at ease. As mentioned before, no worrying if one's in the chamber or the safety's on, and no time wasted chambering a round if one isn't already. But sounds like the were just bustin your b***s. Lol
