i guess at 60 i qualify, have been shooting revolvers alot over the years but with ccw in illinois now " i was in the first group off cc licenses issued" semi autos where what i was steered to initially. but i have found though reasonably accurate, theres the occasional ftf fte with semi autos, just there it is and i hate plastic guns always will. decided with fall jacket n coat weather i will be packing either my 686 ssr or 4"629. heck with speed loaders will carry one but got a 442 for a backup, as a plus the 442 is even more pocket friendly than my shield and lighter. Revolvers might not be for everyone. lets face it in a world where people complain about a 6 or 7 lb pull on their stiker fired gun where will they fall on a dao 442 with a 11lb pull? for me i like that pull, its smooth and sw has that nice letoff point where its easy to stage for a precision shot. predictable, smooth and as utterly reliable as it gets. and its its own safety feature built in. i love the revolver, who knows maybe looking into the future will mean revisiting the past, revolvers are a long way from going out of style, my lgs cant keep them on the shelves.

you know kids get steered to plastic semi autos. all their friends probably shoot them too.
i wonder how many of these kids ever even fired a nice revolver.
for you range guys, why not be nice n let some of the semi auto crowd fire a nice gun?
i think you would get some converts.
just holding my 15-4 was all i needed to love them.
it feels good n it feels natural..

I am NOT saying this is you. Old guys know how to shoot. But I notice the young-uns with the newfangled auto-loaders, what they miss, mostly, well, its the target.

I recently turned one of the guys at work on to the Ruger LCR. He wanted a bug and I had my 9mm at the time. He bought the 38 version.

I showed him my new Model 38 the other day, and he might slowly be going the way of a revolverholic before long

I don't think age has anything to do with what we carry, In fact i would think If i was old (I am 54) and disabled (I am not) one would carry some type of hi cap semi auto. Because in the event you have to use your weapon and your disabled you think you'd like the least complicated most rounds available weapon (If that makes sense) rather than firing 5 or 6 rounds you have the advantage of 9 10 or 15 rounds.
Having said the when Im in a suit (weddings funerals etc etc)
My 442 (No lock) or my Charter arms bulldog 44 special gets carried

I'm a shade under 75. I shoot and carried mostly 1911s for many years but now they are all gone and I shoot and carry S&W revolvers. Took me awhile to smarten up!

57 here. I carried a J-frame for more years than I can remember. The last few years I have been carrying a 1911. But, there are days when my J-frame comes out with me.
