    Their seems to be more of a polarization amoung revolver owners with one group being fairly normal enthusiasts, and the other being insane trannies…. Seems amoung semi autos it’s more of a spectrum..

    They’re better at absolute accuracy, firing from inside a pocket, shooting frick you sized bullets from a handgun, and larping as a hard boiled detective..

    Personally I’d love to add “more aesthetically pleasing” to that list but i admit that’s subjective.

    Personally I like the big boom.

      The latter are the minority of the two by far, unfortunately like actual troons they are extremely loud and unhinged. There is something uniquely autistic and insufferable about a frothing wheelgun fanboy.

      This is a very pretty gun but the 4” version is much more practical. My GP100 is my favorite gun

    Revolvers aren't always "better" or "worse" per se than autoloaders. They are different in ways that are sometimes beneficial and sometimes detrimental.

    Broadly speaking, there's just the experience of using one which is subjectively nice. Loading an unloading a revolver is kinesthetically pleasing in a similar manner to using a bolt-action or lever-action rifle. It is also often easier for people with arthritis to load a revolver cylinder than a magazine and cycle a slide, which can be important for older people.

    Revolvers are immune to feed jams. The cylinder can get out of time, and extraction problems can occur during reloading, but in the moment there is less to top one from firing than an automatic pistol. For concealed carry this can be valuable, since the 5-6+ shots on board will fire so long as the trigger is pulled, even if fired from an obstructed position.

    Finally, revolvers are capable of handling calibers that are too powerful and impractical for an automatic pistol. While automatic .44 Magnum (and equivalent caliber) pistols do exist, they are excessively bulky and complicated. For defense against creatures that walk on more than 2 legs, if a pistol is to be used at all then a large frame revolver is the go-to.

    As with everything, it comes down to either preference or a right tool/right job approach.

      I feel like your revolver sympathies stem from you living in california.

    revolvers and their manual of arms have pretty much not changed at all since the 70s which is very funny because the gun sphere has been obsessing about conceal carry micro compacts and quite frankly newer and superior equipment and yet they still come off as trying to prove they're any better than some grandpa open carrying a 44 magnum

    there's greybeard revolver owners who only shoot 38 special and those guys legitimately never bothered to learn how to use a semi auto, which they feel makes them experts in revolvers but things have changed enough over the last 50 years that the shit they say hasn't applied since jimmy carter was president

      You should have said "than some grandpa with a snubby tucked in his pocket" if you wanted the point you were trying to make to actually come across as coherent.

        Well, the guy you’re talking to might very well be a Zoomer with his spare buttplug assortment in his man-purse, so Gramps with the snubbie in his coat pocket wins most encounters.

        He could even use the snubby as a buttplug, if it came down to it…

    Everyone loves revolvers because they are cool and but they fricking suck balls.

    Even the parts that make us love then like the intuitive loading are still worse.

    Except taking a single single action shot, which is often better with a revolver but not inherently.

    Advantages of a revolver like working at contact distance and coming in magnum chamberings are also not inherent.

      I'm trying to find a holster that allows me to carry my Model 10 low like that, like 3 or 4 in my pic. Any suggestions? Maybe a clipdraw like yours is the only solution...

        Remora holsters. I've used them to carry a Gp-100 and Model 10. They're very easy to wear in any position as deep as you like and they stay in place.

        I swore off ruger after several bad experiences with both the guns and the customer service. I even sold my 10/22 in anger and built one without ruger parts to replace it

          Their revolvers are pretty much something they always do pretty well. If you reload they’re kinda what everyone swears by.

            I’m not saying they make no good products, I’m saying they screwed me deliberately more than once (incompetence, not malice) and I’m no longer willing to do business with them by buying their products

          Seems excessive.
          I had an SP101 that had all kinds of problems from the factory. They checked it basically only for function rather than fit. Being a diy kind of guy, I installed .026" worth of endshake bearings in the cylinder because the yoke tube was too short, reprofiled the hammer dog so there isn't a hitch in the pull, fit a new pawl because, polish every part, shim the hammer and trigger, and finally replace springs. It's finally pretty nice.
          My other Rugers have all been in great shape, but the 101s are like the red-headed stepchild, they must train factory employees using them.

      Why would you need to send it to a gunsmith if its new?

      Revolver action jobs are pretty easy to do too

    This may be a controversial opinion but I think a medium frame 3 inch barrel DAO revolver in .22lr should be the default self defense firearm for non-enthusiasts.
    >long heavy DA trigger only
    >mostly moron proof manual of arms
    >low recoil
    >low noise
    >cheap to practice with
    >less vulnerable to neglect than a semi auto

      If my gf ever wants to start carrying (inshallah the day comes soon) this is absolutely what I would get her for the reasons you stated. I’d rather her carry a .22 she can use effectively use vs anything else. Shit I’ve even considered a .22 lcr for myself, but I’m pretty happy with my SW442

        I bought a .22 LCP on a whim that my wife likes and will carry from time to time. It's the only gun she'll carry and one of two (the other being a MkIV Lite) that she likes to shoot

      32 snub is the best non enthusiast pistol choice. It's also a great choice for a pro

    the only thing i hate about my S&W R8 is how picky it seems to be with primers (even with a tk firing pin), this is probably due to most reman companies using the absolute WORST primers available.

    They're fun and great for reloading, if you care about capacity or reloading you're gonna not like them. For others being able to slow down on the range helps and a 5 round snubnose is still lethal.

    The required financial and skill level is pretty high, but the skill level cap is higher. Any homosexual can pick up a glock and make hits on a manlet sized target at 5 yards, but they probably aren't going to be hitting steel at 100 yards with it even with a ton of training. Although it's relatively harder to be immedietly adequately accurate with a quality revolver, you'll be able to make more precise shots once you've trained with it a bunch. Plus the extremely powerful rounds can make up for the lack of capacity. There are fudds who can land 6 rounds of .357 in 4 seconds on a 6in plate at 30 yards, I've seen it in person. It's legitimately a little scary up close, like seeing a semi auto shotgun or full auto rifle mag dump for the first time.
