I prefer a Double Action Revolver, and that's what I carry Off-Duty.
I last carried and qualified with a Revolver for Duty Carry back in 1997. Now I'm stuck using the "issued" bottom feeding piece of junk. I shoot it when they tell me I have to, not because I want to. I don't even practice with it as I feel that I can hit what I need to hit with it, when I need to hit. My Qualification Scores will reflect this.
I shoot a DAO Revolver better than I do the DAO Autoloader as I've spent more time with them. I'd really like to carry a 1911, but having missed the thumb safety one night in a high stress scenario I learned that "point and shoot" type weapons tend to work best for me.
Now just because I carry a Revolver doesn't mean that I'm limited to six rounds. I also carry a BUG that holds five rounds. I also carry a reload for each gun, giving me a total of twenty-two rounds carried. I may start carrying a third gun as well, but no reload for it.
