    Quick Poll: Semi-Auto/Revolver?

    Just curious to see how many revolver fans are out there among the sea of semi-auto lovers.

    No need to square off and attempt to convert anyone. Personally I made up my mind long ago.

    Semi-auto as main carry gun - snubbie as occasional BUG or really hot days.

    Of course, if they made a revolver with a 15 round cylinder I'd be good to go...

    I voted prefer a semi~auto but, carry a wheel gun occasionally and do not feel unprotected with a good revolver strapped on.

    I've got both, but prefer the semi's because of the size to power ratio.

    I am presuming for CC, which I prefer semi as I can not shoot snubbies very well at all.

    Now give me a longer barrel, (5-6 inches) then I would prefer revolvers, hands down.

    I voted semi-auto, but I have both. I used to find myself carrying the 442 during the summer, but my Kahr PM9 kind of took care of that last summer.

    I've yet to find a semi auto that points as naturally as a revolver of comparable size.

    When it comes to instinctive shooting quickly, for me J frame > compact auto and K frame > medium frame auto.

    Naturally I carry nothing but wheelguns. I may experiment with the S&W 915 that I have in the gun room, but I am not in a big hurry.

    Question Tough choise !

    I am in debate on the matter.If I could only have only one handgun, it would probably be a revolver.I base this on the factor of reliability with any ammunition....

    Yesterday morning I would have chosen semi auto, but after a failure to feed the last round yesterday afternoon, I have lost confidence in my Officer's ACP. Perhaps all it needs is a new mag.

    Both, so I could not vote in your poll.

    How about this: I PREFER a semiauto. I actually carry a revolver for comfort in the heat (pocket holster).

    I voted revolver, but only because of the mechanics. I was raised on revolvers. Like most, I like the semi-auto's because of capacity.

    Same, here, depending upon what I am wearing. My S&W 642 for pocket carry, my Walther P99c for IWB carry.

    Its kinda like asking a carpenter if he could only choose a saw or hammer. Both are important tools in the box and have a important role.

    I have more auto's than I do revolvers, What do I prefer? That depends on the task at hand.
