I wouldn't bet my life on any handgun, given the choice between a carbine and a handgun.
If SHTF, lots of internet revolver snipers are gonna run out of ammo when they miss their target completely or learn that the type of gunfights that happen when the police are nowhere to be found aren't quite the same as the 2-3 round gunfights that a typical street criminal will engage in while backpedaling as fast as he can to escape the law.
That and all the debate about magnum revolvers and pistol caliber carbines for SHTF will be settled by people with AR and AK carbines and scoped bolt action rifles.
There will be plenty of like new revolvers available for the next generation to have the same debate, though. Most people quickly forget history, or choose to forget the parts they don't like, so the debate will rage on after the apocalypse.
