    See I personally highly value the ability to simply insert single rounds and go. This is something the revolver can do that a semiautomatic just can't, well when it comes to more than one shot anyway.

    People make blanket statements like "semiautomatics are faster to reload" without considering the circumstances under which one is reloading.

    Outdated?

    Seems revolvers in general are considered somewhat part of a bygone era - hunting applications aside. I love 1911s and Sig, H&K, Glock, etc. DO offer amazing combat weapons but there's something classy about a good sturdy wheelgun. My S&W M66 is "old school" cool and the 125gr. .357mag is still a good defensive round. A Custom Shop 625 would be a welcome addition to my collection too - moon clips and all.

    The older I get, the more I appreciate the old ways: 1911s, revolvers, handcrafted flyrods.... I'm turning into a crusty old fart, huh?

    Euc,

    There ain't a thing wrong with moon clips, full or halves, if you know the trick to finding good ones made of spring steel like the originals were. You drop them on concrete, the good ones will make a high pitched "ping." Trust me, you are not going to bend them.
