I own three and even though I have tried to like them I find them less practical and less accurate than autos. Anyone else feel this way?

BTW thinking about selling a couple and buying another auto

Large caliber revolvers make me smile. Small caliber ones seem silly.

I used to not like them, then I inherited a Colt Python and a Ruger Super Blackhawk... I've developed an addiction.

Very few are left-hand friendly. Rounds are very inefficient for the size/weight/capacity.

Yeah I have a large 44 and two small 38's, probably going to keep the 44.

The two 38's suck for me, 5 shot capacity and heavy triggers.

If someone gave me one? Sure, I'm sure I'd shoot and enjoy it. I just have no need for one.

Love my autos, but revolvers have an elegance autos don't share.
You have to go out of your way to find a "classy" auto, not so with revolvers.
Old school will always be cool

My 686 and my 1911 are currently in a grudge match to see which one will be my favorite. I don't expect the issue to be resolved any time soon...

I love my 629 stainless classic in 44 mag.
Phenominal trigger - by far the best trigger on any of my pistols.
Truth be told it is my only revolver, all the rest are autos is many calibers

In true arfcom tradition there IS something wrong with you if you dont own both
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:02:15 AM EST
(less accurate)

Never ever have I found this to be true unless you are shooting some old RG
or Armenian piece of junk.
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:02:16 AM EST
revolvers are good
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:02:48 AM EST
My S&W 681 is much more accurate than any semi-auto I've ever owned.

Of course, that may be due to operator error.
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:02:54 AM EST
I love my python and 686. Both are more accurate than any auto I've owned.
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:03:08 AM EST
Had a K-frame Model 10. Didn't like the grip/trigger position, and .38 SPL is kind of a useless round compared to 9mm . For some reason I still want a J-frame Model 36 though, lol. Need to talk myself out of that one. But obviously the big caliber ones are cool because it's the only practical way to deliver that sort of firepower out of a handgun (classifying Desert Eagles as "impractical").

Were I behind the trigger, it would indeed be relaxing...for the squirrel. Dirty Harry, I am not.
I do like revolvers, I'm just not all that great with 'em.

Having owned a "snub" .38 Special revolver for CCW, I'd rather have a .32 or .380 auto pistol instead. I honestly don't see a point in .38 special & below caliber revolvers, other than nostalgia. .357 & .44 mag revolvers are good "woods guns", reasonably sized for the amount of power produced per round. If I felt I needed anything larger than that I'd just carry a short barreled shotgun w/slugs or a lightweight short barreled rifle.

So basically I feel like revolvers really only serve a practical purpose as woods guns & for backpacking - for defense against cougars, bears, etc. You likely won't need the capacity of an auto anyways since in most defensive situations against predators you won't be able to get more than a few shots off before they're on top of you chewing your face off. In that case caliber matters more than capacity - you need something hard hitting, that can punch through meat/bone to hit the vital organs.

Personally I'd like to own a Ruger Redhawk in .44 mag, stainless with a 5.5" barrel, for a woods gun and for backpacking. If I felt I needed anything larger than that, I'd just bring an 18" barreled 12 gauge with a folding stock, loaded with solid (non-expanding) slugs. If that doesn't work, then being eaten by a wild animal must just be fate I suppose lol.

Not me.If I could only own one handgun it would be a 4'' .357 of some sort.
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:06:12 AM EST
To get mindblowing accuracy out of the you have to shoot them like a bolt action rifle. Go for the surprise trigger break.
Link Posted: 10/28/2013 8:06:31 AM EST
They have outlived their usefulness. People can buy them for the unique, cool factor, but I don't understand using them for carry or defense.

Im the same with 1911's. Im on my 3rd one, and i just dont care for them.

Been thinking about a S&W 442 to throw in a B.O.B. but meh.

I like two kinds of revolvers:

Very large caliber ones (preferably scoped), and snubnosed concealment style ones.

I carry a Glock 19, though.

Different strokes and all that I guess. I find the older I get, the more I like them. Perfect carry choice for the farm, usually loaded with a few rounds of shotshells.

revolving doors yes...they suck.

I've got a 6" Ruger GP100. Followed by my Sig Traditional 1911, it's the most accurate handgun I own.

I was shooting .357 Mag handloads a few days ago and nailing bottles at about 80 yards. The gun is extremely accurate and built like a tank. Plus, it can shoot black powder :) What's not to like?
