I'm going with the Captain here.
I was thinking of switching from a 5 shot snubby to a higher capacity semi. But my 442's been my companion for many years and it also happens to be my favorite range gun. I'm very familiar and comfortable with it.
Instead of switching guns, I'm thinking of making a double speedloader holder for my belt instead of speed strips in my pocket.
Yes, I've had lotsa practicing doing reloads with both.
