Both get equal time in my carry rotation
As a CCW instructor, I was just curious about the number of people carrying revolvers versus semi-automatics. I figure the best place to start is here at Defensive Carry. So which is it for you?
With guns, we are 'citizens'.
Without them, we are 'subjects'.

M&P9c most of the time, but also have an LCR for pocket carry when the weather or dress code requires it.
I can't really answer, as it depends on the circumstances.
My own personal experience has led me to the revolver (LCR) when the situation calls for small, light weight, and discreet...with a micro semi auto (LCP) as a BUG.
When I don't need to be as concerned about discretion, then it's a semi auto (Glock 30)...with the revolver (LCR) as a BUG.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
All my carry guns are autos. I just like autos better for some reason. But I used to carry a model 85 taurus. And did that carry nice. I wouldnt hesitate to carry another wheelgun if I had it. But the autos are my cup o tea right now. Stay safe.
M&P compact.357sig, Kel Tec P11 & summertime around the house might find me with a 442 apendix carry in shorts or swim suit.

Used to be 100% revolver until the flashmob idiocy of the last year or so, figured 5 rds might not be quite enough. Switched to Glock 9's and recently to a SIG 40 and haven't looked back.
99% of the time my EDC and BUG are auto loaders and the 1% is a revolver just for a change.

All my current handguns are semis. But I wouldn't hesitate to pocket a 442/642 if one were to appear in my inventory.

Wow... I can't believe I was the first wheel gun vote! Anyway... My primary EDC is a LCR in .38. I have a G26 that I told myself I would carry in "higher threat situations" but in the six or so months since I have been EDCing the LCR I have only carried the G26. And that high threat situation turned out to be utterly hilarious but better safe then sorry.

I will rarely post, but will read (and hopefully learn) a lot
I prefer revolvers for carry though I do semis that get the nod once in awhile.

Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
Only have semi-auto's so far. Really need to get a wheel gun, prob a sp101. But not gonna be for CC.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
