One thing a lot of people forget to consider, with almost any gun/ammo decision is that many self defense situations occur at night. How many people have actually shot their guns in darkened conditions? If you do you'll find one aspect of revolvers I don't care for. Even with low flash ammo, you still get a substantial flash out of the cylinder/barrel gap. It's not only distracting, but plays hell with night vision.

Good point, but if I'm at home, my wife makes sure that it's never dark unless it's bed time. Then I have a 12g extremely close for HD. But I also have to wonder about the muzzle flash of any handgun or long gun for that matter.

I've shot mine in low light conditions (have you heard the raccoon story?) Yes, it's bright, yeah, forget about seeing anything clearly for a few minutes.

That's where training comes in, and I'll be the first to admit, since I left the service, I haven't been getting nearly enough of it.

If you close one eye just like if you were on the range and trying for all center mass after the shot you can change eyes and still be able to see.

I make sure my left eye is closed when firing in training so that it will carry thru if needed.
