    Poll: Semi-automatic or Revolver, Which Is It For You?

    Not seeking new discussion on the "auto vs. revolver" debate but only the measure of the convictions of those who carry handguns and who have formed an opinion that they'd be willing to commit to one of the two options offered.

    When "push comes to shove" which of the two handgun systems do you trust?

    I don't think sensible is the correct word for why I prefer them, but I prefer auto's myself.

    I learned on revolvers and owned and carried them many years before ever buying an autoloader. I do own autoloaders now but seldom carry them as I'll never be as comfortable with one as I would with a revolver. I like the 357mag/38spl options for carry and practice and have trust and comfort in my revolvers that I just don't feel with autos. This really just boils down to personal choice for me and I certainly understand all the arguments for autos. I will also confess to a certain feeling that revolvers are just more "cool".

    I have tried revolvers, but found them to be a little to bulky... that's just me. Love my Glock 9mm's.

    Semi automatics here too, but I do still have a yen for revolvers now and then.
    God bless our troops!

    If you are experienced and well trained; I can't think of any reason not to carry a semi-auto (other thanpersonal preference). If you are not a regular shooter, stick with a revolver.

    I don't think you can put it as being a sensible choice. It is what you feel comfortable carrying. If you feel that a revolver is the correct gun for you, then it is. I own both revolvers and semi's, but a semi is what I carry 99% of the time.

    Hah AZ Husker! "Do people still carry wheelguns?" Hmmph... I thought I was a people. The other day a fellow on another forum called me a Luddite.

    Sixto;

    Haven't seen someone rent out their forum signature space before. What's your rate?
