    The nice thing about revolvers is they hold onto your cartridge cases unlike semi-auto pistols which eject your brass.
    It is good to retain your brass instead of ejecting it in the parking lot for the police to find and use against you in your road rage prosecution.
    Revolvers are definitely best for road ragers.

            Chamber- and pin imprints and DNA from casings are easier to use forensically than bullets because bullets gets damages when fired and are difficult to find if they aren't lodged in the victim's body

              Matching a gun to a spent casing is fricking voodoo that the masses believe is real.
              The experts can testify only that a case "could have come from that gun", California even stopped doing that stupid fired case library thing because it was totally fricking pointless.
              Frankly courts may as well disallow that "evidence" because juries give it undo weight, it's more prejudicial than probative.

        Well it makes sense, since the police could pull a fingerprint off spent brass. You'd have to make sure you only use fresh ammo and wear gloves when loading it. Even then, the police would have something to work with if they know the caliber that was used. With a revolver, you keep the brass and the bullet itself would be too deformed to tell much about what kind of gun was used. The absence of brass wouldn't even preclude other firearms in a lot of cases, since the shooter could simply have collected all his brass afterward, so they have literally nothing to work with in regards to the weapon that was used for the crime.
        Only issue would be noise and witnesses hearing that noise, since most revolvers simply can't be suppressed due to the cylinder gap, but that's more for going entirely unnoticed rather than leaving no evidence behind.
        Also for the record I don't support murder in most instances.

          really, they'd have something to work with if they knew it was a 9mm pistol, the most commonly used pistol caliber in america?

              I've been involved in at least 1 violent encounter / month with a hostile individual this year while just living an otherwise completely peaceful life in Denver. This place is fricked. Tried to help what I thought was a victim of a hit and run, turns out it was an escaped murderer and he was just on a rampage, had already injured 3 people and had killed at least 1 other. Couple weeks later a streetwalker tries to bodycheck me off of my bicycle. Couple weeks later a junkie starts harassing my work crew, ranting and raving and threatening them, and I have to scurry him off. Stuff like that. All in the middle of a regular weekday.
              I tend to carry, but believe it or not the more I'm asked the question about whether or not I should drop the moron the answer becomes, clearly, no. It's not worth the hassle. I'm down for a CONUS kill don't get me wrong but it's Friday afternoon and I have plans and they don't involve making bail.
              Psycho tries to murder you and chases you through traffic for a minute? I was so relieved he didn't have anything on him so I didn't have to kill him, I almost said thank you for not having weapons even while he's trying to take me out.
              Some bum tries to tackle you off your bicycle? What the frick, you want to stop and attack him back?
              I deal with this shit all the time and can't afford the luxury of big tough talk.

                Other non-middle of the day shit from this year:
                11 PM: Pretty middle aged lady trying to walk to the train station, had picked up a stalker, was less than a minute from being robbed, raped, and killed.
                2 AM: Leaving bar, obvious car thief shining light into different cars in the lot near where I'm parked.
                In each of these cases, there were dozens of people nearby that could have done anything but didn't. This shit happens all the time, everyone just pretends not to see. No need to pull a gun in these situations, voice was enough.
                If I had a wife and kids I'd reserve my energy for them but I don't have much to live for other than myself at the moment, so how many times can you just turn your head and pretend you just don't see?

    Depends on context.
    >For hunting
    Quite useful. Common magnum rounds can take small to medium game with ease. You can often use the same ammunition types in a lever-action carbine or a similar type of rifle.
    >For defense against particularly large animals
    Useful in powerful loadings, but not as good as a rifle.
    >For defense in your house
    One of the worst home-defense weapons. The "advantage" of revolvers in self-defense (ability to put more power downrange) is a drawback in your house where you could friendly-fire. But it is sometimes advisable to equip your wife or older parents with a small-caliber revolver since they are easier to shoot for weak persons. They are not confusing or complex firearms, even to non-shooters.
    >As a concealed weapon
    Situationally practical. These situations are limited to wearing a tucked shirt with no jacket or carrying a firearm in a jacket pocket. Small revolvers are ideal for this since autos can jam with fabric while shooting. The revolvers come small enough to conceal within *certain* pant pockets but not all of them. You have to choose the pants to fit the purpose.
    These small revolvers in .38spl have a very hard time meeting FBI standards for lethality. Hollow points will typically underpenetrate or not expand at all. The best load remains the 148gr wadcutter. It is not perfect. Still, the load is considerably more lethal than modern .380auto loads, which is the largest pocket competitor. A case can be made for .357mag.
    Hollow points are entirely a fool's game in these guns if you imagine yourself shooting from pocket, since there's an extra layer of fabric that can clog the hollow point.
    9mm autos tend to be superior for every other concealed instance.
    >As a target-shooting weapon
    Arguably much funner than autos. Will motivate you to shoot more. More ways to fingerfrick the gun.
    >As a combat sidearm
    Impractical in the extreme. Cases can be made for use against supernatural opponents.

        Also (and this is a VERY niche case), there are plenty of supernatural creatures that are vulnerable to fire. Vampires, wendigos, etc. If you expect having to deal with one, then a .410 revolver with dragon breath shells suddenly becomes so much more than just a fun and unique way to light your b***hy neighbor’s yard on fire at 3am after half a hand of whiskey (frick you, Cathy)

    If you get obsessed with shooting large caliber stuff they’re fantastic. Also I’d say if your getting into reloading it is marginally easier and more forgiving to be reloading for a revolver vs a semi auto…

    Personally as far as self defense goes it comes down to personal preference.. while they have a smaller capacity than an autoloader I can look past that disadvantage if you enjoy shooting your revolver and end up practicing more with it because of that.

    If your teaching a new shooter then a single action revolver is a great choice from a safety standpoint…

      I personally feel like my lcr is a substantially better shooter than my p238, while being significantly more comfortable to carry (and still somehow a better shooter overall) than my p2000sk was. It's, at this point, the gun I am most confident with, and that I put the most trust in. I fully trust .38 +p to do whatever job I need it to.

      A practical answer from a based BFR enjoyer.

      There are plenty of security footage clips of people mag dumping 15-20 rounds at a target and everyone declares that revolvergays are forever BTFO, when in pretty much every single instance a well placed shot from a calm individual would have ended the threat just as quickly.

      I keep a .357 next to my bed because it’s the gun I enjoy the most and therefore practice the most with. If someone kicks in my door in the middle of the night, I am fully confident that I can handle a threat with 6 shots from a gun that I know well, in a home that I know well. And if I can’t? Then my Malinois can keep an intruder busy while I reload. And if I STILL can’t? Then frick it, maybe I’m just not meant to survive.

        Yup. Everyone likes to argue about how much difference capacity makes, porting, how fast something can be drawn and caliber…. But the answer has always been “practice shooting your gun regularly” and if you enjoy shooting your gun your gonna practice more.

    If you can commit and get used to the double-action trigger and it's pretty practical. .357 Magnum out of a 4" barrel is fairly easy to control with practice, though .38 Special is usually plenty for most applications. If you're gonna CCW you either get a snub or a shoulder holster

      It's a Taurus 856 2" barrel with a ClipDraw clip. Very very comfy to carry and surprisingly accurate. Been carrying it every single day and shooting it twice a month for over a year now. Also a speed strip holding 6 rounds in my watch pocket there with the pocket knife. Snubnoses are great for everyday carry; something about their contours makes them much more comfortable than semis in my opnion, but your mileage may vary

          I like it a lot. Like I said, I carry it everyday and shoot at least twice a month. It's super comfortable on the hip and with a little dry fire practice I got used to the trigger& I put up some nice& fast groups. Two recomendations - get the stainless finish instead of the matte because the matte requires more care in the sweaty summer months; and put a dab of white or orange paint on the front sight

          What’s the grip? Is that attached to the clip?

          The grip is just the factory wood grip that came with the gun. You can order them on Taurus's site for pretty cheap. The clip is separate

    They're not bad. Most mainstream handgun cartridges do about the same, and the majority of self-defense shootings are over within 3 shots max (the record is 5 and that was set in 1987 with Goetz).
    They have a few good things inherent to the design like an inability to malfunction due to user error (jamming, limp-wristing, etc), recoil management is simpler, and they can be fired within a pocket if need be. They can also be made to chamber a variety of different ammo types without worry for cycling, and many can hold rounds too large for conventional autoloading pistols that could be used for defense against large animals.
    For self-defense, be it against man or beast, they're not too bad. For combat use, high capacity autoloading pistols would be more advisable.
    The main reason for the differentiation is that for self-defense, you either have one attacker whose only goal is to kill you or you have many attackers who only want to steal something from you. If the former doesn't die in 6 shots, then I doubt you'd have any time to actually kill him with any handgun before he gets you. The latter instance is a gaggle of cowards who will flee when shot at, because there's no honor among thieves. They don't care that you only have 6 shots, they don't want to risk being shot next. The Goetz shooting only took as many shots as it did because it occurred in a subway train car, so there was nowhere to run for any of them.
    In combat, you're being faced with many attackers whose only goal is to kill you, so you need more bullets for everything.
    If you have many attackers whose only goal is to kill you as a civilian, that means you pissed off someone really rich and powerful, and in that case little will actually help you if you're a lone person. But you should also know you did something to piss such people off, so you should have a rifle.
    TL;DR: handguns are mostly the same, carry what you want with at least 5 bullets.

        Perhaps I should clarify, for defensive combat use. This would be having it as a secondary weapon, or just being a POG whose main job isn't carrying a weapon but who may still be at risk of getting attacked in the line of duty.
        Yes, your main duty should be to get the hell out of dodge if your rifle is fricked up or if you don't have an issued rifle. The handgun may help you do that, which is the point of having it. It's to make sure you're not stuck with your dick in your hands if an enemy or two is preventing you from escaping. That's generally how self defense works in the civilian world too, you can't get away so you have to kill a nig to survive. Same situation except it's many nigs who want to kill you and nothing else.

    They are very useful. When it comes to compact pistols I find that the smaller semi auto pistols are more sensitive to jamming and they don't really feel all that great on the belt because most of the weight is above the beltline. Revolvers feel a lot better for AIWB carry and they'll fire no matter how shite your grip is.

    They're...good enough. Most gunfights are super short, 10 seconds or less. Chances are you won't get through all 6 rounds before you or your opponent drops. The ergonomics tend to be better and you can fit longer rounds than you can with a slide action.

    Naturally, if the fight drags on you're screwed and the cylinder gap is both hazardous and inefficient but this is pretty minor in the grand scheme of things.

    They simply fell out of fashion because contrary to leftist narratives most defense training is centered around defense and not offense. If you have to defend yourself against several attackers and a caliber like say 9mm is "good enough" to take down an attacker why go for a bulky revolver with lower capacity when things like the Glock 45 or SIG Sauer P365 exist?
    As offensive weapon it would very much still make sense. Like say if someone wants to commit a robbery and just plans on downing a person in a low quality vest or shit like that.

        This is why I am a revolver guy. I love them. I love them so I shoot them a lot. I shoot them a lot so I have confidence in my skills and equipment. I don't hate autos but I'm all specced into revolvers and there's no talent tree reset at my age. Same with dots on handguns. I have no incentive to try to reprogram my gun brain at this point.

    Revolvers are a really good idiot-proof carry because they can be loaded and ready to fire without being wienered. They are essentially always in condition 0 just by virtue of being loaded, but are safer to carry thanks to the long and heavy DA trigger pull. Also ease of use is unmatched. Just point and shoot.
    They also aren't as difficult to conceal as people think, and are virtually malfunction-proof if they're well-maintained. Reloading isn't an issue either. With practice, you can get reload times with speedloaders comparable to magazine-fed handguns.

    In short, they are safe, reliable, and easy-to-use carry options that are just as good as autoloaders

      Holy cope, Batman.
      Fricking lost it at "Ease of use is unmatched. Just point and shoot", that's literally what you do with every single firearm since the dawn of gunpowder.
      The truth is that revolvers are dog shit for everything but large calibers in the defense world. Inaccurate, slow muzzle velocity, heavy, low capacity.
      In short, they're obsolete garbage.

    Revolvers are better than autos for 75% of all normie gun owners. Fact is everyone got sold a oad of shit by gun industry marketing and you would be just as well off in 2024 with a 1899 hand ejector as you would a plastic fantastic. Hard to sell you new guns with that truth though.

                Like I said - I carry a revolver. I'm not saying they don't work or that you shouldn't carry one, I'm saying that you need to practice more to be accurate and fast with one than you would with a semi-auto. The triggers are objectively more difficult and the grips are usually not very good. You can like a revolver for its advantages like I do, but don't delude yourself about the downsides and think you can hand them to novice shooters and expect them to land shots under pressure.

                Revolvers have a U-shaped utility curve. They are very good for absolute noobs due to the moron-level manual of arms and the inherent safety. They are very good for enthusiasts who will put in the work to master them. Everyone in the middle is probably better off with an auto.

                It's a mixed bag. I like them for novices because they're less likely to blow their own dingus off with one, but on the other hand I think they'd be better off landing one shot before a jam with a semi-auto than winging five shots with a revolver like the guy that got killed in the NY Post article I linked. Of course there is the possibility he could have missed with a Glock as well, but they're just objectively easier to shoot.

You don't worry about speed and accuracy when you are still trying to figure out the controls and the basic manual of arms.

    theoretically they have two advantages. they are mechanically simplifier, meaning there is less to go wrong so they should be more reliable. they do not eject their casings. not unique to revolvers but bigger calibers like .44 mag are more common.

    in reality? semi autos are superior for every use case. including shooting some gang banger in a road rage incident. you should be wearing gloves while you load all your mags anyway so the casings don't have your finger prints on them. that's like remedial forensics. if you're an moron and jerk off on to your ammo and leave semen in the dude you shot it doesn't matter what type of gun put the bullet there, your cum incriminates you.

                Nah I don't think they are bad guns at all they just don't really do anything for me. Pretty much the only stainless guns I buy are carry guns and I don't typically carry any gun worth more than about $500. Anything higher end I buy is gonna be vintage and blued. The only Colt that does interest me is the Night Cobra and that's because of the finish. That DLC over stainless might be the most durable finish ever put on a revolver. It would be a carry gun though and I already have that covered so no real incentive to buy one.

                MAYBE if their blued Pythons end up being decent I will get one but the polish on the one they displayed at that trade show was atrocious.

                Spur snagging is a skill issue from fumbling a gun, wood grips are slimmer profile if you get frame sized ones, its a defensive revolver that will be used at point shooting distance.

                lol I went shooting yesterday. This is turning out to be my best year since all the primers disappeared in 2020. Probably my first year getting back to my usual pre-panic round count. Nothing competition level or anything. Maybe 10K through handguns and another 1-2K out of rifles. 21-23 when I couldn't get primers(well, refused to pay the scalping prices anyway) I did MAYBE 3K a year. It was pretty shit.

        Yeah, a 3 inch .357 is what you want. Don't get the SP101, get something with 6 shots like a 3 inch Model 13 or 19 carry comp, or maybe the Kimber (idk how well they shoot). I'm going to be carrying a 4 inch Model 13 in moose country for a backpacking trip next year and I feel that with Buffalo Bore 180gr hardcasts it'll be adequate, but I'd totally carry a 19 Carry Comp if I could justify the price.

            Ever shot a small .357? you'll carry .38s in it and be gimped one round by not just buying an 856. 856 is a good choice unless you want pocket carry and then it might be ever so slightly too big.

            .38spl will completely pen a human torso. All you get with .357 is more recoil(slower follow up shots), report, muzzle blast and a bullet that flies farther out the other side of your target than the .38 that ALSO completely penned the target.

          You know you can load .38 +Ps in a .357, right? There's not much reason for a .38 revolver not to be chambered in .357 other than it being too weak to do so.

    If you're up against something big that needs a more powerful round, they're excellent due to their mechanical simplicity making it easier to design around greater pressure.
    If you need something that can survive low maintenance, inconsistent cleaning, and a bit of a beating, they're also great.
    If you're up against Tyrone in the "wrong neighborhood", small-medium game, or other people in an actual warzone, you're better off with any higher capacity autoloader since you aren't stuck with 6 shots (usually), the kick of a round that's completely overkill for what you're shooting at, or having to frick about unloading and jamming individual cartridges into cylinders/fumble with a speedloader should you need to reload in the middle of things.
    That all said, they're pretty fun to shoot and load, and I don't give a frick how unsafe it is, I WILL spin that thing like a cowboy any time I quickdraw and nail a target.

          A man with zero training shot 4 nigs in self defense with a 5-shot .38 snub and without so much as a reload. He was either extremely lucky, or the bar for self defense is much lower than people would like to tell you.

      Most revolvers are .357, but .38 still has a place. I got the .38 LCR to minimize weight for pocket carry, but mostly because I'm not interested in carrying .357 in such a small gun. The .38 one also has cooler cylinder fluting and the cylinder release isn't so damn stiff.

      Compared to .357s of similar quality, yeah they should be. If I were you I'd go for an old Smith or something anyway, the only modern mainstream revolvers I think aren't shit are Rugers and even those I mostly wouldn't buy.
