In this day and age, it’s an easy argument to make that revolvers, especially small 5 shot snub nose guns are outdated and not enough for EDC purposes. I certainly can’t disagree with that logic that in this day and time with the civil unrest and violence we have seen. For myself however, I can’t get away from the j frame as an edc. To me it’s advantages outweigh its known disadvantages. This can be attributed to, at least in part, to spending a lot of time with it in training and shooting. Being able to consistently pass concealed carry tests such as a 5x5 drill, or make consistent hits on a reduced silhouette target at 50 yards gives one confidence that is vital with a gun of any type. After 30+ years of carry, my philosophy of use has changed more than once, kind of taking me in a complete circle. From 1911’s, BHP’s, and Glocks with some Sigs, Berettas, and CZ75’s in the mix, I’ve come back to the wheel gun. For complete comfort, and quick presentation, I haven’t found anything better than a j frame style revolver. I think another benefit to revolvers in this day and age, is if you are a handloader, you don’t have to chase your brass and can easily keep a steady supply of ammo on hand for cheap practice and carry. When hollowpoint bullets as a reloading component dry up during shortages like we see today, then a lead semi wadcutter can do just fine for both practice and carry. Loaded to 650-750 fps, it’s got plenty of bone braking penetration and is easy on the gun and the shooter, especially with airweight type guns. Lead bullets are easy to get and less than $50 for 500ct. Ive also got a +p lightweight load consisting of a 110 weight Hornady XTP using the same powder that makes an honest 1042 fps out of the M442 with a 1 7/8 inch barrel. It shoot poa/poi back to 15 yards, and has a satisfying recoil with an even more satisfying bark and flash. While I’m sitting on my cache of 9mm and 45 auto, I have brought the 4 inch M10 out of retirement also. I have a 8 shot M627 Custom ship 357 Maggie, but it’s too big and heavy for edc. I have thought about picking up another 442/642 LE purchase, and am contemplating the new 2.5 inch M66. Those would make a dandy compliment to the j frame in my pocket. Anyone else sticking to or rethinking the revolvers?
