    Statistically, any situation where a gun is used in self-defense, 97% of those situations end with 4 or less shots fired. 99% of those situations end without any need for reloading the weapon (regardless of weapon type).

    That means revolver is just fine. M1911 is just fine. If you run into a situation which you can not solve with 6 rounds fired, the chances are it's a situation you won't be solving anyways even if you had more ammo.

    Are you a law enforcement officer or a soldier? Someone who might have to use his gun as part of doing your job? No? The revolver is fine for you. Do not give into your fantasy of "lone gun-fighter against the odds" fantasy. Your first priority is to get the hell out of dodge, not to start living your power fantasies.

                contend the probability you will ever need more than 5-6 rounds to resolve a DGU is lower than the probability your auto will jam on the worst day of your life. You do you though.

        >The same criminals trying to mug you
        Not necessarily. There's a good argument to be made that gang bangers (of the kind usually killed in police shootings) aren't really crazy about mugging. It's a lot of risk for usually not that much reward. Muggers are usually junkies, and bangers usually aren't junkies. They kill each other over turf ergo drug money and probably are more likely to shoot at the cops because they have more to lose. I get the narrative that all criminals are stupid and unpredictable, but overall people's behavior trends towards predictability. A junkie is less likely to get shot by the cops because he has less to lose in being apprehended. A gang banger is more likely to get shot by the cops because he's more likely to have a decades-long sentence. It makes good sense to me that, overall, the kind of person likely to be shot and killed by the cops is less likely to be shot by a genuine civilian just because there's less of an opportunity for them to ever interact.

          I’d take a look at the Police Activity channel. A pretty sizable amount of the OIS are a result of armed robbery, carjacking, and other violent crime on civilians. I just used “mug” as a catch all term, and it sounds like you’re thinking about this too deep. Doesn’t matter if it’s a junkie or gang banger when you need to use your gun, a threat is a threat, and I want the option that gives me the best chance to win. Same reason I use an AR for home defense.

      What a meme post. Justifying a revolver based on how it's "not that bad" instead of why it's good. Fact of the matter is you don't know how many rounds you're gonna need to protect yourself, your family or your neighbor. Nobody really knows what any of those statistics really mean or what would've turned the tides. The man of the household is the de-facto guardian of his family and he must be prepared to stop a threat at any time. If that means he needs a high capacity, high powered semiautomatic, then so be it. If that means he needs a hammerless snubby hidden inside his coat pocket, then so be it.

        >Fact of the matter is you don't know how many rounds you're gonna need to protect yourself

        No we actually have a pretty good idea thanks to decades of anecdotal evidence. For the vast majority of cases it's less than 6 rounds. First person to get a solid hit in a gunfight is usually the winner. Therefore I choose to maximize the chances that my first 6 shots in a gunfight are going to go bang no matter what. Some people would rather risk a malfunction in those first 6 rounds to gain the ammunition capacity of an autoloader in case they ever face the lower probability of needing more than 6 rounds. To each their own.

      Revolvers do malfunction albeit rarely and when they do it's catastrophic. A well maintained semi auto is just fine, and only a dirty monkey would consider keeping brass as a huge upside unless you mean for reloading it for range ammo

      https://i.imgur.com/8GTJMVE.jpg

      They are still guns at the very least, but semi autos have come too far and there is no realistic scenario that they lose out to a revolver, fun range toys that look cool and feel cowboyish but much less efficient weapons compared to what we have now

        This fricking moron take again. Revolvers are immune to ammo related malfunctions, which are the most common type of malfunction in an auto. If a so called “catastrophic” revolver failure happened to the timing/broken part/etc, that would be an equally catastrophic failure in an auto.

        So to break it down further- ammo related failure in a revolver: pull trigger again
        Ammo related failure in an auto: tap rack bang
        Catastrophic failure in revolver: no bang at all
        Catastrophic failure in auto: no bang at all.

        The one revolver specific failure I will give you is crimp jump which is very easy to avoid.

                I own a couple of Taurus revolvers which some consider garbage(they're not btw). I've got a little over 4K through two of them and have had zero malfunctions. I got them right before the panic wiped out everyfrickingthing in early 2020 so round counts should be way higher but primer shortage last few years fricked me pretty hard since I only shoot handloads in my revolvers. Availability is pretty good right now(prices not so much but whatever) so I'm looking forward to my first normal shooting season in 3 years. Of course I'm sure WWIII or something will frick that up though. We'll see lol.

      Pocket revolvers are still very relevant because pocket autos are blowback pieces of shit and print much worse than a j frame or similar sized revolver. They really aren't relevant for duty guns. Big ones are good for woods guns though.

      People will continue to buy revolvers because they are cool and American culture reveres them, much like the samurai sword is inferior to European swords, but people still like them because they're cool and Japanese culture reveres them.

      >Heavy
      Depends. Aluminum snubs are not heavy at all. Full sized steel revolvers obviously are.
      >bad triggers
      Depends. If you think any double action trigger is bad, then skill issue. Most triggers from reputable companies get really smooth if you break them in with dry fire.
      >awkward to carry
      Literally how?
      >low capacity
      Of course
      >less durable
      Are you one of the people mad that you damage the gun by whipping the cylinder closed?

      >Usually bad sights

      The best gun to get is the one you like the best. This is the truth that is for some reason hard for many people to accept.

      Guns are like cars. There are different uses for different people, different design philosophies and niche groups. What it the best gun of one person can be horrible abomination to another. What matters is your own needs, desires and expectations and what you are comfortable with.

      Go to a gun range, loan a load of different kinds of revolvers and try them all out. Then pick the one you liked the best. The one that fits your hand the best, the one with most acceptable recoil to you, the nicest trigger... the one that you thought was most fun to shoot.
      Pick the one you like the best and suits your needs.
      Because if you ask other people what is the best gun, they will invariably tell you what it the best gun FOR THEM, not necessarely for you. Again, it's kinda like asking what car is the best. You answer will depend of whom you are asking it from. Audi fanboys will say it's Audi. Mercedes fans will tell you it's mercedes. Ford Mustang guys will have only one answer for you. But ultimately, the best car is the one you yourself like the best.

      Considering .38 is wimpier than 9mm, I’d say yes to some extent. Imagine a revolvergay with a J-frame getting torn to shreds by a giga-homie because he ran out of ammo and didn’t score a CNS hit. Would be quite funny.

          .38 with proper bullet/load will go clean through a human torso. You can't ask for more than that in the handgun realm. It's your job to put them where they will break something that leads to rapid incapacitation.

          unless that giga homie has 20 inches of fat which would act as a natural armor five shots(j frame) of .38 (provided all hit) would be enough to incapitate, imo.

          I am not saying revos are the best option but they are not the worst either. They are just fine.

          Multiple instances of joggers taking numerous torso hits and still fighting, from .38 to .45 ACP. Capacity is king as long as said round is able to put a hole through a person was my point.

Fourth was a Model 10. I have been hooked on revolvers since the model 10. I just like the ergos better. I own and shoot competitively steel, aluminum, and polymer framed pistols and I own revolvers and I like the revolvers much more.

                At least one of you gays is honest but if you don't train enough and your accuracy is poor as a result then you're certainly not training enough to be competent at malfunction remediation so it's still a net negative to carry an auto.

        .38 with proper bullet/load will go clean through a human torso. You can't ask for more than that in the handgun realm. It's your job to put them where they will break something that leads to rapid incapacitation.

          Darren Wilson and the ZimZam would have been better served with a 5 shot jframe.

          Trayboon had his paws all over the gun when they were fighting over it and zimzam barely got off a shot because the slide kept getting pushed out of battery. Face Down Michael Brown was wrestling with Wilson through the squad car window over his p229.

          >Wilson drew his weapon and told Brown to stop or he was going to shoot him. Brown replied, “You are too much of a pussy to shoot,” grabbed Wilson’s gun, and pointed it at Wilson’s left hip. Wilson could feel Browns fingers working to get into the trigger guard. Fearing he was about to be shot by his own gun, Wilson struggled to point the gun away from his hip toward the driver’s door, at which point he pulled the trigger. Click. He pulled it again. Click. The gun wouldn’t fire.

          >Officer Wilson pulled the trigger a third time and the gun went off, firing a round through Brown’s right thumb and into the driver’s door. The shot startled Brown, backing him up off the vehicle. Wilson stated Brown became enraged and “looked like a demon” in response. Brown then leaned back into the vehicle to assault Wilson again. At this point, Wilson tried to fire another round to no avail. Malfunction number two.

    I hunt rabbits with 38 special wadcutters, and deer with a 44 mag. I had to put a doe out of her misery with my 38 after a car busted her legs, and since this was in an area that has seasonal shooting bans I didn't want to leave a casing on the ground, For self defense I'll stick to an auto.

      2)leo/mil adoption means they are cheaper due to economies of scale
      3)leo/mil adoption means marketing for gun companies to push products tthey want civvies to subsidze the development for in hopes they can land leo/mil contracts
      4)leo/mil adoption means most trainers come from that background teach what they were taught which mostly has frick all to do with civvie self defense

              1) cheap
              2) lower training cost(DAO is harder to master)

              What you can't seem to wrap your head around is that trading reliability for capacity is a good trade off for leo/mil because their use cases involve offensive use of a handgun. They have to press a fight where a civvie can just break contact. Also they generally have mutual support so if they have a failure there is somone else to pick up the slack where a civvie is alone and fricked if their gun doesn't work. In the case of Mil use handguns are almost irrelevant outside of MP use, narrow SOF use cases and brass trying to look tough.

                This is also objectively self-evident if you have ever trained a noob. Mil/leo have speed/accuracy requirements to qualify. Autos are objectively easier to shoot faster with less total rounds of practice. The DAO trigger is the hardest trigger to master and requires the highest round count(thus cost) to attain proficiency.

                Yes we are. We're talking about why someone would carry a revolver over an auto or vice versa. I make my case for the revolver based on my evaluation of my specific needs as far as legitimate self defense. gays want to argue about why they think auto is better for them. Feel free to. I just want you to be realistic about the plusses/minuses of each system. Neither is perfect and there is no one size fits all for everyone and their specific situation.

                Kay so what does it matter if they can't master a DAO trigger quickly or not?

                It only matters in relation to the discussion on why leos/mil use autos. Part of that equation is COST. Departments would have to spend more money for more ammo to train 80IQ moron cops to qualify if they were holding the standards they do now because it takes more time/rounds to attain the same level of speed/accuracy with DAO than it does with an auto.

              First, NTA
              Well for a few examples, they may actually need to fire the entire magazine's worth of bullets and quickly reload. In the majority of civilian self-defense shootings, less than 3 shots are fired, and there aren't any instances of reloading under fire (the record of 4 shots, 5 counting the one miss, still goes to a .38 J-frame from a self-defense shooting in 1987).
              As it so happens, the average civilian will not find himself facing down many opponents that are determined to kill him at the cost of their lives. Criminals and even political ideologues tend to flee when shot at, being either opportunists, cowards, or both. Even Rittenhouse only fired like 2 or 3 shots before his attackers fled.
              You may indeed find yourself facing such a determined opponent if you've fricked your neighbor's wife, or perhaps many if you regularly piss of the local mafia. But again, the average person doesn't need to deal with these. By all means, carry what you like and use best, but know that for the average shoot, you will likely only shoot a few times to end the threat. I do personally carry a few different guns, both revolver and auto.
              Also, cops are very incompetent at shooting. There's many bodycam videos of them dumping their entire mag vaguely at an attacker, and I recall at least one with a female officer where she also shot an innocent bystander as she illegally entered a house to heckle an actual moron. I'd sooner use the military application of a given firearm than look to the police for good examples.

              A cop has to walk around carrying his gun all day, every day. Along with pepper spray, taser, handcuffs, radio, phone, multi-tool, baton, etc. So he wants a small, light gun. His job might involve confronting one dangerous person or many. So he wants a high capacity gun, even at the cost of stopping power.

      I don't like how it kicks. Seems to dump the force right on the web of my thumb. Not as bad as a 9x18 PA-63 (that one felt like I was being hit with a fricking hammer), but still bad. And it's not the caliber, I have Smiths and a 1911 that I shoot comfortably. It's probably something to do with the design of the grip.

      I think you're gonna try it and not like it or find that it prints more than you would like unless you wear some specific jacket. But everyone has to learn this for themselves. I have found it's much easier to carry strong side OWB but you can't wear zipper jackets if you want fast access. With buttons you can just button the top couple and still be able to get in and out fast. I have a K.L. Null holster for a j-frame and it does work great but I pretty much only use it when I'm wearing a full suit and I know the jacket isn't coming off at any time. Suit pockets are kinda flimsy for pocket carry but it can be done.
