A full blown outbreak has just occurred, your holed up and only have a few guns and only one handgun. Which REVOLVER is your go to gun and why?

This will be hard for younger folks who don't know what a revolver is and only own plastic.

(pics score bonus points)

Mine is a Smith & Wesson model 66 with a three inch tube. Why? Light, compact, easy to handle and carry. Can shoot either 38 or 357 mags and ammo is available everywhere.

I want that gun!!!! If'n you ever want to get rid of it, lemme know.

Here is what I would take for Revolver Zombie Killing. S&W 686SSR,

You could shoot this????? Not me brother........ That's my little huckleberry.......... However if she were to get all "zeddish",

Then she would have to get the Model 19 Smith and Wesson pictured below.

*IF* i were remotely interested in revolvers THIS would be the one to get.

Ruger GP 100,4" barrel.It can handle a steady diet of real magnum loads, and any questionable reloads you might happen to scavenge.One of only two revolvers I own.

I'm grabbing my Ruger Security Six. I have 3 of them now but I'm going for my Security Six. I know which one she is.

Taurus Raging Bull, .44 mag.
Link Posted: 7/24/2010 7:08:03 AM EDT
I would pick any 6 round cylinder revolver that has a 3" barrel at least (preferably longer) for accuracy and can shoot both 357 and 38. That 8 round S&W is nice, but I am hesitant about not being able to find speedloaders or half mon clips for it.

This is a S&W model 19-2 . 357 magnum with a 2" barrel, made in the 80's, that I bought earlier this year. It was a safe queen and has no drag marks on the cylinder, basically new......

Nagant with suppressor.
No good in a zombie swarm but great for sneaking about & taking care of any lone zeds you come across without alerting the rest.

Since only headshots work on zombies a good 8-9 shot .22lr revolver should do ok. Much less noise than a .38/.357 or larger, easier to scrounge ammo for & you can carry lots of ammo easily.
Link Posted: 7/24/2010 12:00:00 PM EDT
I've got a S&W 500 Mag. If you could get them to line up, it will take a lot of heads with one shot. My GP 100 is probably more reasonable.
Link Posted: 7/24/2010 12:02:47 PM EDT
I just realized that after the 500 ran dry it would make an excellent club.

Hell, so would the GP100.Carrying that thing around is a workout.

my Ruger GP100, 357 with a six inch barrel. It always goes bang and I can hit 6" steal with it at 50 yards and have practiced the double tap with magnum loads. It's also my HD Gun.

I've tried to like revolvers and have owned many of them. Just don't own any now. Had a 4" 629 on hold for a while at my gun store, but ended up letting it go. Owned a couple of Pythons but ended up selling those to (stupid me!). Dad has a 6" 686 though. I'll just make due with one of my Gold Cups.

My everyday carry.

Link Posted: 7/24/2010 9:54:01 PM EDT
the barrels revolve, it counts right?..


i guess if i had to go with a "grandpa's gun" i do still own a H&R 929 and a ruger single six .22LR / .22mag that i just haven't gotten around to dumping yet. 15 rounds between 2 guns and the baility to carry 100s 1000s of round sof ammo makes me far better armed than a 16th century musketeer i suppose but why the fuck would anyone intentionally put themselves in harms way with any gun with such limited capacity?..

Historically, that was a terrible gun. The rifle cartridges had too much pressure for the chamber and cylinder and because it was a rifle, when you had a K-Boom it would blow off your left hand.

Some performance center smith with a red dot and 8 or 9 round capacity in .357

[Last Edit: 7/25/2010 9:58:33 AM EDT by former_usmc]
I'd say Ruger SP101 because it's light and can use .38 or .357, both of which should be plentiful or a S&W 24 .44 special because it's just sweet! I guess it just depends on what's present.

I'm not a revolver hater. My first handgun (About 40 years ago) was a S&W 66. That being said, as far as a revolver in a zombie outbreak: FUCK THAT!

It is ridiculous to come up with these scenarios.

OK, so the OP wants to see some revolver pr0n. Nothing wrong with that. Just say "Post pics of your favorite revolvers that might be suitable for deanimating zombies."

No need for the hate brother. If you don't like the thread, ignore it. See how simple it is? We are talking zombies here....which if you take it seriously is very, very rediculous. Lighten up and have some fun.

i did really enjoy the thread where we had to select our loadout if it were a ww1 era zombie apocalypse...

if we're going antiquated lets at least bump the capacity bak up a bit... iirc 7mm pinfire and 21 and 30 rounds respetively, would reproductions in .22LR be ban-state compliant as they have no "detachable" magazine?..

You think that's hate?



This is mine. It's in 44 WCF caliber (aka 44-40) and I made the grips myself. Shoots to point of aim and I'm pretty good with it, having shot it a lot.

Sorry about the scanner picture.

Shame these were proven to be less effective with .410, and not very accurate with the .45LC. Just buy a proper .45LC revolver, unless this is purely a fun gun. Not to mention all the problems with Taurus products and their crappy customer service.

Shame Taurus is such garbage, otherwise I'd gladly be setting aside money for the upcoming Raging Judge Magnum.

I like revolvers, and especially a .357 Smith. This old model 65 would do just fine. It loves the 147 grain Winchester Silver Tips.



This Model 63 in .22 LR might be more practical in the long run though.
