So I've been thinking of getting another gun I have a bulldog for plinking and for backup home defense but I feel I need more capacity and more of a practical weapon. Down the road I plan on getting a .38 for a car/pocket gun. But as far as a good mainline weapon, not sure. I love revolvers and feel 100% comfortable with them. But I also kind of want to try an auto. I don't know much about them and have never used one. A little intimidated by them. For a mainline defense weapon for home defense I am planning on renting a few autos and trying them out. Then I'll know more if I like them or not. So far just by trying them in gun shops, some feel ok in the hand but I don't like the slide on them and they just seem dangerous to me compared to revolvers. I don't know. Should I try an auto, or keep it simple and go with an sp101 or a .38 revolver? I hate to rule out autos until I at least give them a fair shake.
