    You are going to regret it very quickly. In your mind you are trying to justify carrying a 5 shot revolver. Then you are going to be reminded that criminals are killing people with full on AKs and shit these days and realize that carrying a 5 shot revolver might be the stupidest idea you've ever had. The only use for a revolver is *maybe* pocket carry from time to time? But even then, theres 6 shot revolver out there. The SP101 is outdated. A relic of the past.

        Unless you are doing headshots.
        You could 360 noscope a nig in the hayid with a 10mm and it would bounce off of its skull like you threw an empty 42 of steel reserve at it.
        Also, military training is dumb with the whole "aim for center mass" bullshit. Just shoot them in the belly. It's the least armored part of the body and most people will be crippled pretty fast with a couple of gut shots.

          If I don't hit someone at least 1 time with 5 shots inside my house, I kinda deserve to die.

          By the way, I am old enough, and I have been enough on the internet to remember at least two cases in which black women tanked headshots without any consequences because of their hair, when turned into dreads it literally turns into kevlar.

          Honestly, I am surprised and disappointed no /k/ dude ever tried to buy some black hair and roll it into dreads and make kevlar out of it.

      Please post one.... just one example of any nig robbing a white person with an AK in the last 10 years. Get this moronic shit outta here

      5 shot isn't ..amazing. it's a hard compromise, but still better than 0 as been said. But for a "throw in a the pocket holster while I drive to the store" not too bad, enough to canoe someone from behind who's fricking around for some swishers.

      nobody uses AKs to rob people, they use cheap polymer striker fired handguns. AKs are for making rap videos and bantu tribal warfare where making a lot of noise is more desirable than actually being effective anyways. hence why they love the draco, its the perfect weapon for that purpose.

    You could get a used Smith J-frame for cheaper, and they'll end up lighter and thinner making them easier to conceal than the thicker Ruger revolvers. But if you have the money and can conceal the extra bulk, go for it.
    This thread has a few people who seem to have forgotten that the record for most shots fired in a self defense shooting still goes to a snub nose .38 J-frame, a record that has remained unbroken since 1987. Goetz carried no reload either. 4 attackers, 4 hits, one miss. My litmus for a carry gun is "am I equally or better armed than Goetz was?" If so, then you're fine. And until someone breaks his record, 5 rounds of .38 or something equivalent to that will be the bare minimum for a carry gun.

          Cylinders do expand and contract, what's more likely is that your headspace was set wrong from the factory. You're supposed to have .010" (+/- .002) of wiggle room behind an unfired case rim.
          If your headspace was already too little, then heat expansion would tie up the cylinder.

    Finally k talks about a gun I own.

    I live in Italy, I don't have to face criminals armed like rambo, to me having this thing loaded next to my bed is a great insurance policy.

    I am terrified about the idea of having a loaded semi auto at home, and then the day i need it, just ends up failing because pheraps i left the loaded mag for too long and the spring got messed up.

    So my 5 round revolvers seems reasonable. Also it is pretty cool once you hold it in your hand, i like how it feels.

        Go ahead anon, explain me.

        From what I imagined I supposed that a spring in tension would, sooner or later lose its properties if left under stress for too long.

          I'm not either, but the simple version is that it isn't the compression of the spring that induces wear, its the cycle of compression and releasing that compression that does it. A mag that's loaded and left alone should be fine a decade later, but a mag that's loaded and unloaded everyday for the same time period will eventually wear out.

          said is correct. A brand new magazine that is loaded and left loaded for decades will have a spring that is just as strong as the day it left the factory. Springs wear out from repeated being tensioned and un-tensioned. A magazine that has been used regularly for a decade will wear out, a magazine that has been left loaded for a decade will work just fine.

    DAO is terrible and .357mag is gimped out of a snub nose. Contrariwise, the 3" sp101 with a hammer is nice shooting, durable and gives you the power of the .357mag. It's still not a nub gun and the fact that you are asking the question makes me think you are not ready.

    The downside of the sp101 design, beyond the above mentioned is that carbon build up happens under the cylinder. After about 50 rounds, or 1 box of ammo, the double action pull becomes gritty and heavy due to particulate build up under the cylinder. You can clean it but taking the cylinder off to properly clean the gun requires removing the grip and pushing in a detent through the frame to drop the action out of the gun. Doing that and reassembling it is kind of a pain in the ass, especially if you have to do it with any regularity. Guns like the S&W model 60, you can just back out a single screw and slide the cylinder off, way easier. Korth goes as far as to use the same mechanism as the S&W but they replace the screw with a simple button.
    The upside of the sp101 is that it's durable and heavy. It's not as comfortable to carry a heavy gun but the weight helps with the recoil.

    One last time, a DAO snub nose is both a terrible shooter and gimped. A 3" with a hammer is better but you can't pocket carry it. Pocket carry is stupid anyway, mostly because you lose use of that pocket.

    I take it to the range a shoot .38 through it and I carry .357 Hornady Critical Defense rounds.
    I have a holder for two speed loaders, but I don't usually wear it.
    When I do carry the reloads it's not too bulky, but my shirt does tend to ride up over it after a bit of walking.

      It's too heavy... for a 5 shot revolver. If you're belt carrying a revolver, you might as well jump up to a 6 shot K frame or Kimber or what have you. Similar weight and size to an SP101 but you get another round.

        You'll have to if you want to carry anything bigger than a derringer. The question is "how much" are you willing to dress around your carry. Most people can get away with pocket carrying an LCP no problem, but if you wear super skinny jeans, you'll still print. You can't CC on the belt line if you wear crop tops like a early 00s teen girl. If you ankle carry, no shorts. I pocket carry a j frame usually, but I have to wear relatively loose fitting pants or else it prints.
