    ...unless I must be in very hazardous circumstances, my SP or my Bodyguard .38 are my BUG always...if I'm in a part of town I'd rather not be in or on the long road, my P97 or P95 may be the BUG to my P90....

    Both.

    I prefer to use the right tool for the job, which includes caliber selection as well.

    Not that I'm OCD or anything...

    Why do you need to know? Are you trying to make your decision? Which pistols and revolvers are you trying to decide between for your own personal use?

    While I carry a semi auto 95% of the time, I do carry a revolver on occasion.

    Semi auto...very few exceptions...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    For some reason, I got a bug up my crawl and decided to consider adding a revolver to my arsenal. It would be primarily for CC. I feel perfectly safe with my Semi-Autos, but the wind shifted so now I'm looking at revolvers.

    I don't carry regularly, but I'm thinking about picking up a S&W j-frame as a ccw. When in bear country, I carry a revolver. I answered 'neither' because I carry so rarely, but I suppose 'revolver' might have worked for me too.

    I've never been in a gunfight as a civilian, so it's hard to see where I 'need' more firepower than a model 649. Plus I like the simple reliability of a revolver.

    Woops, I probably should have chosen both but I primarily carry an LCR.

    I carry Semi Auto for the capacity but I wouldn't have a problem carrying a revolver if that was what I had.
