    You just can't beat a good revolver. Simple, no mags to keep up with, no such thing as a jam or FTF, anyone can shoot it. Plus you get to feel like a cowboy :)

    Probably the most important feature of a good revolver in my opinion. Lol

    If you pistol whip somebody you don't have to worry about knocking the slide out of battery

    I started out one day to make one of those handgun "wheel" displays that used to be so popular over on Smith & Wesson forum, featuring only the .38 Special revolvers kept around here but couldn't really get the lighting right so ended up with a pile. There are "20-something" .38 Special Colt and Smith & Wesson revolvers in the pile, representing every decade of the 20th century. No revolvers were harmed in creating the pile.


    Yes. That pic is ONLY 19's and 66's.

    This pic is ALL of my S&W's

I had the chance to shoot one at the range (rented it) and found I did want to get it. So, by sometime next week I should have it in my hands and will go to the range and have some fun.
    Got it last Thursday. A fun gun to shoot for sure.

    In three decades of military/LE handgunning the only total failure I ever experienced was with a revolver (during training, fortunately). The hammer-mounted firing pin (A.K.A. hammer nose) from my S&W M-19 fell to the ground. Over those years, I also had a (very) few of the usual quickly-correctible malfunctions with SIG, Glock and 1911A1 autos in those thousands upon thousands of officially-recorded rounds fired. I'd estimate a third of those rounds fired were from revolvers. Despite this isolated failure, I still consider my revolvers useful and dependable.

    I've wanted to play with one of those Chiappa revolvers. A friend has one but I've only handled it and dry-fired it.

    I don't have a group photo of the entire Smith & Wesson group, 1 old 0311, but it wouldn't be that significant if I did. A most lovely massing of examples of my favorite brand of revolver.

    I'd be more concerned about bending the crane, ejector rod, barrel alignment, or the frame itself than I would be about the hand.

    All bets are off with regards to durability when a handgun is applied as a club, no matter what that handgun be. Besides, things have deteriorated badly if the situation warrants using the handgun as a bludgeon.
