    I too switch back and forth between a SA and revolver. It all depends on how I dress. I mostly pocket carry but If I could ever figure out how to conceal a G-30sf IWB, It would be my EDC. I'm asking for a Rohrbaugh 9mm for Christmas.

    I don't hang out in crack houses, biker bars, or strip clubs at 2:00 a.m. The odds of getting into a shooting contest for a civilian in like .00000001% In that small area the odds of needing more than 5-6 rounds is even lower. Even smaller is the odds of finding a BG who has spent more range time, 3 times a month for 43+ years, than I have.
    Nope my J or K can do the job nicely.

    You can create any condition or scenario you want in your mind to think you have all the right questions & answers, nothing new on any gun forum. However, they do not speak for my competency. You can't be sure or pretty sure of anything pertaining to me personally, be it "physical or emotional". You can only project your own inadequacies and doubts "assuming" that I suffer from the same. I'm well aware of my capabilities as stated and I don't feel any need for a defense subject to your imagination. I'm not a keyboard commando, a member of Seal Team Six, SWAT, nor am I a monster hunter, just an everyday life kind of guy proficient in the basic skills needed to live life without interruption from thieves, vagabonds and creatures of the undead.

    I can conceal a regular G30 (no sf) no sweat. Try a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. It holds the gun tight to the body and is tuckable.

    I hope you never have to find out (or that none of us do) and that if you do, it all works out as you envision. Good luck mate.

    Assuming there is a Mrs. Santa, treat her real nice. Works for me.

    ^This

    I have never seen any documented cases of a civilian* SD encounter outside the house requiring more than a couple of shots. Every documented case I've seen when the civilian pulls a weapon, the BD flees. They may fire a shot or two while fleeing, but they never stay around to count how many rounds the civilian is carrying.

    If anyone can send me a link to a single story of a SD situation involving an average civilian* CCW outside of their home** running out of ammo or requiring a reload, I'll re-consider my faith in revolvers.


    Unless I'm planning on storming a beach in Normandy, 5 shots is plenty for social situations.

    *Please note, my definition of an average civilian is a person who is not a LEO, armed guard, jewelry store owner, cash courier, bodyguard, Bruce Willis, person with a stalker, world leader, drug lord or other people in dangerous professions. People in those specific classes may have reason to require higher firepower.

    **Home invasion/domestic violence scenarios don't count here as I'm talking about CCW for the average citizen. Inside the home I don't consider to be CCWing, at home one can have an Arsenal big enough to defend the Alamo.

    Lordhamster, this one doesn't meet your criteria, but makes for an informative read. Newhall massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And there is, of course, Miami for the caliber argument.

    I don't go to Vegas and I don't stake my life on percentages. I carry enough firepower for the worst case scenario, not the least. And if you've been to a large city gun range lately.......da homies are practicing their gun skills a lot, and they can hit what they are shooting at. I think it is pretty naiive to assume any confrontation requiring the use of a firearm, that your opponent will be a lousy shot or that because of your training, you will be better.

    Who needs an AK or an AR when one has 100-yard Glocks and all those extra mags?
