Funny that you say that but according to your profile you carry 9mm, 40 and .45 autos...

I had not given much thought to the appearance of my carry weapon. After thinking about it I am not sure if it is relavant. If a confrontation with someone bent on doing harm gets to the point the snubbie is out, the chances are good that it is too late for further negotiation..

I carry autos, but I have an affinity for wheelguns, and carry in my vehicle both .357 and .44 cal. wheelies depending on my mood.
I also own several "cowboy action" revolvers , but they dont see any carry time.

Not necessarily true. Some of the smartest people I've known were formal (or present) criminals. The famous painting "The Scream" was stolen by a crook, but obviously not by an idiot since it's never been recovered.
But, if they had any brains, they wouldn't be bad guys.
Honestly, I think the BGs would be just as scared by a revolver as by an auto....
...Unless we're talking Mall-Ninja bad guys who carry ceramic plates that'll probably stop any "revolver bullet", but not a Glock 9. :)

HighVelocity...looking at your avatar, I'd guess you were with the 101st, right?

Yeah, I work with some of these guys. The kids on the street are well aware that most wheel guns carry a greater punch than alot of auto's. In my area they seem to revere the .357 Magnum, even have a slang name for it.
