All right lay something to rest for me.
I have this deep seated paranoia of a revolver that uses moon clips as a defensive gun. I'm paranoid that the moon clips seem to be thin and might bend with use, especially considering how you have to take the brass out of the clips. I'm then worried that a bent moon clip would keep the cylinder from rotating and causing one heck of a bad day.
I'm also paranoid that I couldn't reload a moon clip with loose ammunition in the field without some kind of special tool. With a regular revolver you just drop them in, and at least I can reload a detachable box magazine with my thumbs even if it is slow or I can't quite squeeze that last one in sometimes.
That's probably why I'll never actually carry a revolver that uses clips as a CCW gun, because it just seems to defeat the reason I like the platform so much.
Is my paranoia unfounded? I realize if such a thing makes me nervous I should simply continue to avoid it, but I want to know if this is a "perception" thing on my end that stems from some irrational fear or if this is a genuine issue or maybe a little bit of both.
