Thread: SAA for everyday carry?

  1. I completely agree with wolf_fire. As long as your are proficient with your weapon and confident; it is a great choice for you. SAAs worked pretty well in the Old West and there isn't a reason they shouldn't work well now in the hands of a skilled individual.

    Sure when most other people you were facing were using SAA revolvers...

    Ridiculous argument.

    One shot at a time regardless. So yes, ridiculous argument.

    In case there is anyone still reading this who may be tempted to consider a Single Action revolver a good choice for carrying as your primary self-defense weapon, here are reasons NOT to do it:

    (1) You are limited to six rounds.
    (2) It requires you to engage in fine motor skills to get the next round into action.
    (3) You will take eyes/attention/sights off the threat.
    (4) It assume a high level of skill to reload in any kind of quick manner.
    (5) You must assume you will be facing only ONE assailant.


    It is a very foolish choice to make for EDC/SA.

    There is no REPUTABLE self-defense trainer who would ever recommend the use of SAA for EDC/SD/home defense.

    Proof once again that it's much more difficult to hide one's ignorance than it is to acquire knowledge.

    I too grew up shooting single action and love the asthetics of a good SA but i keep mine now more for fun and conversation pieces. Before I got my CCW I would open carry my Beretta Stampede 45lc with a tooled and scrolled western style Cheyanne hip holster. I would get more coplements and questions like "your young are you even old enough to know how to shoot something like that?"

    If they are so great, as you guys claim, I'm sure the military and law enforcement would still be using them...oh, wait...sorry, I don't want to confuse any FUDDS with facts.

    LOL.

    Veteran with cqb experience......my side arm sent one round then suffered a FTF this is why i am having my revolver fixed for my cce

    When I open carry, my favorite is my Ruger New Vaquero carried in High Plain Drifter Rig. Always ooh's, awe's and compliments wherever I would go. Never a negative or anyone in shock.

    The Beretta Stampede 45lc is a beautiful SAA, I've always admired it.
