    Arrow Your Next Firearm: Semiauto or Revolver?

    Just seeing what the mood is out there. My next gun purchase will be a revolver. Then maybe another revolver, just because they're so damn fun.

    There's a great emptiness inside me that can only be filled by a 1911.....

    Revolvers work everytime---semiautos do not. One look at the firearm sales guy, as pulled and tugged and racked and took pieces and springs out of the semi as he showed it to me, made it obvious to me that this was not what I wanted to deal with. I do not live in downtown Bagdhad, where, it seems many of our forum members live when I read their comments and need for "firepower". Always a "what if" but statistics on almost all defensive shootings end after less than 5 shots and not being a Dirty Harry, quite frankly I do not see myself still firing after that many rounds. I have never been (69 years) in a situation that even comes close to a need for a firearm and, quite frankly, purchased one and secured a CC more as an embracing of at least 2A of the constitution in the face of a federal government that is as close to a dictatorship as I ever want to see. I certainly understand those who want or perceive a need for a semi--just is not me.

    The simple fact is that all firearms are mechanical devices - machines. I can tell you for sure after spending all of the last 37 years as an automotive technician and most of that time also as an aircraft mechanic and amateur gunsmith, that all machines break or malfunction sooner or later. Period.

    And don't give me the "you gotta buy brand X" garbage. I have a Colt, an S&W, a Rossi and an RG in for repair right now. Revolvers don't always work.


    On topic: My next gun, unless something too good to pass up comes along, will be another Mosin Nagant 91/30, this one to turn into a good close range brush gun.

    My Next Pistol

    My next will be revolver with a three inch barrel.

    If I can find a airweight model 642, 638 or maybe a titanium with a hammer shroud that would more than meet the need.

    The three inch barrel rather than a two inch gives a little more velocity but the most important is the sight radius.

    The lighter the pistol the more often I will carry it. Heavier pistols like the smith model 10 in with a two inch barrel is a little too heavy.

    For those of us that have a nice smith model 65 with a three inch barrel have the same problem, a little too heavy and the frame is large enough that it can be uncomfortable to conceal.

    I have an older smith model 36 but it has an outside hammer that will hang up on clothing when carried in a pocket holster or possibly a belly band holster.

    Bottom line, next one is an airweight with a three inch barrel and concealed hammer.

    Geez....do you use them to drive nails when you're not shooting them??

    One day I'll add a western-style revolver to my collection but for now my #1 acquisition would be a 1911. That is, of course, after I pay for a new driveway this month That $4k would buy a lot of nice guns...
