    It's all good

    I have the option of carrying either. For most needs a snubbie will get the nod. I seem to shoot them quite well and enjoy their simplicity for daily use. I also carry a small LCP when nothing else will do and am confident of, and with a small .380 pistol. I have been playing a lot with a Kahr PM with night sights recently and as much as I like it, I just tend to find revolvers more comforting. I bought the Kahr thinking it would be easier to carry and conceal but the J frames just seem better/easier.

    I've been dabbling in carrying a 1911 in 2012 more than any time in 15 years but still find the revolver suits best.

    Tough one.

    I'm almost split down the middle. Both see about equal carry time.

    I was a revolver guy most of my life. Carried one or another for over 30 years. Switched to a pistol in 2008. Been pistol only since then. Old guys can learn new tricks!

    Anybody who's lucky enough to have both semi-autos & wheel guns in their EDC rotation, is clearly lucky...enough.

    My widely-varying daily agenda often requires; different dress codes, different vehicles & different points of view on EDC. For me, one gun DOESN'T do it all.

    I carry a semi-auto for a bunch of reasons: (1) accuracy (2) reliability (3) capacity (4) speed of reload (5) easy to maintain. Some folks may disagree with me about reliability, but a well-maintained semi-automatic weapon loaded with proven ammunition fired by a trained, competent shooter is just as reliable as the same shooter firing a revolver.

    I will confess, however, that sometimes I get nostalgic and think it would be fun to carry my S&W Model 29. But then I come back to reality; carrying a weapon is not about's about surviving a lethal force encounter possibly involving multiple assailants. My semi-autos afford me the highest probability of accomplishing that objective.

    I consider the Glock 19 to be the most practical carry piece I own. It gets the most play to that purpose followed by one of my snub revolvers.

    I carry revolver / semi-auto about 50/50, but I do have 2 semi-auto and only 1 revolver that I have strictly for CC. Out of any one gun, revolver gets the most holster time.

    I carry both at different times. My SP101 is small and light weight while my 1911s are heavier and dont hide as well. I dont feel undergunned with either but then again I am trying to disengage rather than engage. Unless I am home that is but then I am fighting my way to a long gun there (which isnt to far away from anywhere in my home).
    The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

    If I'm actively carrying, it's usually my semi-auto as it is a bit more comfortable. If it is a situation whenI will need to leave it in the car most of the time, I usually pick up the revolver.

    I currently have a semi, but I'm hoping to make one of my upcoming purchases a wheel-gun.

    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.
