I'm not sure why you're trying to make that point in response to my comment, as it's immaterial to my comment.
My point is that while revolvers are handguns, they are not pistols. Specifically, pistols are handguns with one or more stationary chambers. Revolvers are handguns that use multiple rotating chambers. Pistols and revolvers are mutually exclusive terms. They are both handguns, but pistols are not revolvers and revolvers are not pistols.
That could be because many of the accepted definitions are wrong.We live in a time when all definitions are being challenged.
Exactly, that is why I constantly challenge the definitions of words like "sacrifice" and "selfless" and "selfish". The prevalent accepted terminology is wrong.Just because a term is commonly misused in no way negates the fact that it's misused.
Nowhere is this more painfully evidence than the confusion over wheel, tire, and rim. People commonly refer to the rim as the wheel, but it's not. It's a rim. When you mount the tire, specifically the rubber tire, onto the rim, you have what the technical manual states is a "wheel assembly," or "wheel," for short. You bolt the wheel to the hub. The "wheel" is the complete assembly upon which the vehicle rides and includes both the tire and the rim.
When you see advertisements for "wheels" and only rims are depicted, such as this page with Discount Tires, it's because some marketer thought "wheels" sounded better than "rims" and it stuck, in part because it may have been a national chain and in part because it might indeed sound better. Doesn't make it right, though.
In racing, if a tire shreds, the announcer says the driver lost a tire. If the entire wheel (rim + tire) pops off the vehicle, the announcer says the driver lost a wheel.
Bottom Line: There are no revolvers present in this long list of pistols.
Again, let's please not perpetuate incorrect terminology just because of its prevalence.
Oh, I wouldn't go that far.Good on ya' Snub44 for pointing out that tidbit. I'm sure I encountered the patent information in print in the past, but hadn't thought to use that argument in debating the topic.
Here's another link to that site.
One of the most important innovations in the history of firearms was Samuel Colt’s designs for the revolving cylinder pistol.www.ammoland.com
Of late it has become fashionable in some circles to bludgeon any who resort to the use of the term "pistol" when describing revolvers.
Walking, bicycling and diet changes are what worked for me.Working out bro. Trying to keep my almost 60 year old body tuned up for the long haul.
Nothing but walking, wind sprints, push ups, and dead lifts.
The danged diet is the worst part
I like the way you put that. My perfect Colt LW Commander is my #1 perfect, but my #2 perfect Shield 9mm conceals better as well.Well, I, too, have been hunting for the perfect pistol for many years.....my perfect is my CZ75D in 9mm although a little "chunky" when compared to my #2 perfect which is my S&W Shield 9mm which conceals better.
