Default Would you carry a revolver?

Having a debate a work about 6 rounds not being enough.

I say, if you need more than 6 rounds, you have bigger problems than a .357 with a speed loader can help you with.

The other guys say 11 rounds is better than 6.

Thoughts?

Tell them a revolver is all you need. If they need more, get out to range and keep practicing

Sure I would. Would carry whatever I could shoot well. Depends on the situation (the old METT-T standby). That debate will go on forever.

Revolver? He!! yes. For CC a S&W M-65 3" .357. For colder conditions or open carry a S&W M-657 4" .41 mag. One shot, one stop. You can ding 'em with a 9 or stop 'em with a good wheelie round.

Carry what you shoot best and can conceal. Remember the first rule to winning a gun fight--Have a gun!

I may carry a wheelgun. If the @#*^!@ temperature ever gets high enough (without rain) for me to get to the range. I only have access to an outdoor range, and I have a 65-5 that I really would like to try out.

Where's that darn global warming when you need it?

I think a small revolver is good as a backup and/or hideaway gun. You can stash it away somewhere for as long as you like, and don't have to worry about magazine springs wearing out. It'll always be ready to fire.

However, for a primary weapon in a "SHTF" situation, I'll take a good semi-auto every time, preferably a 1911 .45.

Cylinder bulge is what turned me off for hip carry...However, on occasion, will carry a k-frame in a shoulder rig....As far as the # of shots vs an autoloader; not a hi-priority in my mind....
