    Revolvers are simple...less opportunities for failures. If you can't get out of dodge with 5 shots, you'll never make it past the 5th one in your hi cap mag either.
    A lotta truth here.The advantage of the hi-capacity autos is mainly for military or LEO situations, where many BGs are fought at once, and probility of havimng at least one other god guy helping you.
    I got my permit in upstate NY in 1970. The LEOs carried Smith model 10s or 15s. They also were issued a chief special for off duty. ( Not many LEOs carried BUGs in those days. When the permit arrived, I was trained in SD by the local sheriff's department firearns trainer/armorer.
    He explained that the criteria for an issue/duty firearm:
    Must be: at least 38 special, at least 5 shots, be both single and double action, have ready made holsters and acessories made for it, etc. Back then, there were almost NO automatics with single and double action in at least 38. 9MM was thought to be inferior to 38 because of the lighter bullets. Don't forget that the bullet had to penitrate thru very heavy winter clothes. He also stated that the research stated that if you did not get the BG in 3 shots, he got you. ( Stats said 2.3 shots, 2 seconds, 15' average.) Deputies were also taught to double tap. When you HAD to shoot, they wanted that threat ended NOW.
    The deputies were allowed to carry a personal choise as long as it met the above criteria. ( Most carried a model 19 as a step up.)
    They did not like the 45 for fear of over penitration, and there was no revolver choises, to speak of.
    Now, the almost all LEOs carry a hi-capacity auto in various calibers. The drug pushers carried a 9 so the officers went to that cal with hi-cap guns, just to be "as well armed".

    So, I started with a 2" 38. Then I got into a PPK. ( Sorry I sold it) Then, back to a revolver.
    Now, I have a 380 mustang, and a smoith 642. I do not feel undergunned with either. I choose whatever I am carrying by my mood or clothing for that day. Both can be IWB or pocket carry. I have a leg holster for the mustang>
    the mustang hides better because of flatness, but the 642 is better to draw because of no protusions.
    Call me old fashoned, buy I like the revolver. Something about a gun which has no safetys, no need to cock the hammer, or carry "cocked and locked". ( Yes, I am aware of teh glock system) With the 642, draw, point, pull the trigger and it goes bang. If i don't, pull the trigger again.
    maybe this is why Smith came out with the bodygard 38, Ruger with the LCR, etc, along with 380 equivalents.
    All that said, I carry hydrashoks in the Mustang, and hydrashoks and +P SWCJHP in the 642.
