    Revolver VS Auto

    I was just sitting here and I thought I would stir up things. Yea, I know I can be a trouble maker. How many revolver fans vs Automatic fans do we have here and why. Why would you choose one over the other? I don't want to get into caliber just type.

    Personnally I'm a revolver fam, although I carry both depending on type of dress. The revolver I know most likely will go bang when I pull the trigger. I don't have to worry about ftf or fte problems. Or in the middle of a firefight clearing a a stove pipe. It's simple to use for those us with a simple mind, but that's another thread. LOL

    Also do you think it matters ( revolver vs auto ) for someone who is a novice

    So guys and gals, what do you perfer?

    LOL I do both. It dempands on what I am wearing as to what I carry. My
    S&W j frame is my fave to OC in the hot weather. The only problem I have is that at times I must be very careful not to have it fall out. Did that once in the tomato patch.

    I have a revolver but can hardly find caps for it anymore.

    But I did hear my CHL instructor say that a revolver will shoot faster than an semi-automatic, and that did get my attention.

  6. It's wonderful having 13-15 rounds in my Glock. I have to say I'vehad 1 stovepipe occur in multiple thousands of rounds downrange. I've found the Glock platform very dependable, across the 20,22 and 26 models. I recently took a class at TR and Clint Smith said that the dis-advantage of having a good pistol is that you never get a chance to practice clearing malfunctions...someone with a lousy pistol is a pro at malfunction clearing because they have to do it all the time. The only real time I've seen frequent malfunctions is when I've set them up during a class. I have to say attending TR is an absolutely outstanding experience. Clint is very personable, extremely knowledgeable and great teacher and coach. It's located in a beautiful location and is in immaculate condition. Every time I go I look forward to his lecture the first day of class. You have to listen close and write fast to catch all of the really cool, pithy things he says.
    Anyway, I haven't shot revolver a lot, but feel confident in trusting my life on my Glock.

    I wonder if TR has a USA CARRY troll discount available?

  8. I just remembered one other thing we talked about...with a semi automatic pistol there is the "out of battery" issue.....if you are up close and personal (touching) with a BG a revolver may be needed because the semi auto won't function. So maybe the answer to carry both, and use each in the appropriate environment.

    FYI, if you have a round in the chamber, and pull the trigger, the semi-auto pistol will go boom. It may not cycle the next round if it is pressed against something.

    FYI, if you grab the cylinder on a revolver and hold it, it will not cock, nor fire.

    If your close enough to grab my gun, I may just opt to hit you with it instead -
