    No it doesn't. My point is, any X over Y argument can be countered back and forth, ad infinitum. You just did it right there. There's no winning answer there and neither party in such a discussion will ever change their mind. All they have to do is change the green eggs and ham from a box with a fox to a train with Jane.

It is good to have a variety of firearms to choose from but I guess Iím just a traditionalist. Unless I know Iím going into a bad situation I need lots of rounds my little snubnose still gives me comfort
    Ummm, but your screen name though...

    I changed the comparison revolver to eliminate the issue of the perception of quality (or lack thereof) in the revolver I initially used for the comparison. This was to make it an issue of comparing autos to revolvers of equivalent perceived quality. That's all that was going on there. I wanted to eliminate extraneous issues.

    But your right, I'm unlikely to change the mind of dedicated revolver guys. They've had decades to think about his, long before I popped onto their computer screen. But the question becomes, for someone who isn't coming into the argument with preconceived notions, what's the better type of gun, on an objective basis, for a particular take of use?
