Default Revolver or Semi Auto?

Which would be better as far as a conceal carry weapon & which would be the best on a wallet, in you guy's opinion?

6 of one, half dozen of the other. As has been said time and time again... it depends upon you. What you find comfortable. What you shoot well.

Very true. I like the 357 Mag. But I like the higher ammo capacity of a semi. I guess dependabilty is key too!

I dont want to sound mean to you Hatchet, so if I do disregard it as such. But do a search for the same thing you asked, there has been about a dozen threads started here with the same title with pages of remarks. If you need more clairification on any of the topics we here at FTF would be more than happy to answer them. These are common questions here and in a few moments you could have your answers instead of waiting for a while for someone to post an answer.

Personally, I like revolvers and I think 6 rounds is enough.

Both have advantages. Both have disadvantages. Neither is "better". It's what works for YOU.

If either platform were truly better, the other would have faded away from the self-defense handgun market.
