I prefer revolvers because I can keep my brass intact for reloading which = alot more economical shooting. I also prefer revolvers for other reasons, but I carry both as the fancy strikes me.

Only two defining forces have ever died for you.....

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!

Depends what how I am dressed and where I'm going.
For carry? Well then it has to go BANG!!!!!!!!!!!! That really isn't the time to worry about ammo sensitive, FTF, FTE, stovepipe, double feed. It has to go BANG, that's why I carry a wheelie.
The last two CHL gun classes I had (78 total) there was not one single revolver in the bunch.
Usually we will see 3 or 4 in a class of 40, but lately even that no longer applies.

There's only one gun I carry at the moment and its a semi. My revolver is an older gun and isn't going to be in the carry rotation - not that it couldn't be used in that capacity.
I'm tempted to get a .357 Mag or .44 Mag but if I do, it'll spend most of its days on the night stand.

I like the capacity, flat shape, smaller size per inch of barrel length, and faster reloading of automatics. So I carry those.
I really enjoy shooting my revolvers, and I would like to add more to the collection. Also I have a 442 that gets carried once in a great while.
Both get equal time in my carry rotation. Mostly depending on the dress code of the day. Being proficient with both gives me peace of mind.

I feel comfortable with both the Revolver or the Semi Auto.
It depends on where I'm at, the time of day and where I'm going.
In the Big Cesspool Cities or Along the Border, I always carry a 1911, Glock or Browning HP and a BUG.
Running down the street to the WaldoMart, I might just carry a Smith 640.
I started out my LE Career carrying revolvers for about fifteen years and then switched to Semi Autos for about twenty years.
Now I retired, I carry what I want.

Semi-autos are by far more popular and that's what I prefer to carry. Revolvers just aren't as cool. Like Mel Gibson said in "Lethal Weapon" in response to Roger's answer that he carried a Smith. "Yeah, a lot of the old guys carry those."
But from a practical standpoint, it's easy to slip a pocket holstered snubby in my right front pocket and that's what I do. It's easy to visually check that the chambers are loaded, there's no safety to fool with, no worries about stovepipes or failures to feed, and a .357 packs plenty of punch.
My Glock-36 is usually with me, but at times, my Ruger SP 101 wants to go with me.
