Yes I have. I had open capsule repair at 16 years old. 10 years later I bench pressed double body weight (330 at 165 lbs).

Has anyone seen a dud from a semi-auto pistol discharge AFTER it was ejected - anyone?

When I was "young and dumb" I theorized that the perfect carry set up if it was TEOTWAWKI ...... about the time of "The Omega Man" & "Serpico" movies........ a 4" 66 .357 backed up with a Browning HP 9mm.


I avoid the whole argument ...... I carry concealed!!!!

Those guys that claim revolvers are obsolete, have obviously been watching too many movies,or cop dramas on television.

Yep, rotator cuff repair. It's all about the rehab.
Running the slide is 95% technique & 5% upper body strength. You need enough hand strength to hold the slide & grip, the rest is technique. Anyone claiming diff racking a slide isn't using a good technique. Compare that to 10-12# triggers, yeah that is a lot harder to work with than a stiff recoil spring. Small hand muscles vs larger upper body muscles.

50 plus years ago I started carrying with a S&W model 19 and a Colt 38 super auto. Many years and guns latter I carry a S&W 9 mm Shield and a snub nose revolver. Hard to break old habits.

Each has a purpose and a time to carry!

Be SAFE and shoot often whatever you carry!

I still carry a revolver for work, and have gotten used to the comments. There probably isn't a criticism of the revolver I haven't heard over the years, but it doesn't bother me. I have confidence in my ability to use my revolver, and that's all that matters to me. To be honest, I also enjoy annoying people by persisting with my revolver.

I was in Philly a few years ago when I saw a uniformed cop w/a revolver. Introducing myself I inquired about it and she said she was too old to change when her department transitioned to the Glock, and older officers were grandfathered. She said it in a way that led me to believe that gun had saved her a time or two.

I don't know about dangerous, but I've seen a bunch of revolvers over my time with carry up issues. Part replacement, a little bit of cut and file work and back to normal.

As an aside, the vast majority of semiauto failures are user induced, and most revolver failures are wear or maintenance issues . . .

My first hand gun was a colt trooper I found in a pawn shop in mid seventy"s for $160.00, I reget selling it some years later. I watch the youtube vids on the hi cap nines and find myself wanting one, but end up being happy with my 638 after thinking about it. I carry concealed and don't go to a public range so no one knows what I have on, until I need it, then you will know.

I find those who criticize revolvers and say they’re obsolete are not gun people at all. They’ve probably never even shot one before. One thing I love about firearms are all the different types that exist. Shotguns, lever actions, bolt actions, 1911’s, single actions, and yes double action revolvers. All have been around longer than the modern semi-auto pistol. If you limit yourself to just one kind you are missing out. And someday, years from now, some idiot will say the striker fire pistol is obsolete. Shoot what you enjoy. Life's too short.

Lot of good posts in this thread, each handgun has it's own unique advantages and disadvantages. So why not carry both.....

The only two auto loaders I have are my LCP (for those times when a J frame cannot be adequately concealed) and a new Gen 4 Glock 17. I purchased the G17 for $443 OTD, and it came with Ameriglo sights so passing this up would have been nuts. It’s mostly for LEOSA qualification, coming up next month. I have used my Model 10 snub to qualify in the past (shot 85%) but the reloading times are too tight for a wheel gun, even w/speed loaders, at least for a fumbling old goat like me.

I won't debate the capacity issue. It will go on ad infinitum, much like 9mm vs 45 and steel vs polymer. There are many real time shooting incidents on You Tube. In every one I've seen, Mr. Bad Guy and his cohorts don't engage, they turn tail as soon as the shooting starts. Said it many times. If you have to reload, it's no longer self defense/personal protection, it's a fire fight. If that's the case, you're in deep you-know-what, doesn't matter what you're carrying.

I wonder what they'd say to us old fellers who still pack a cap and ball from time to time?

Sorry, but if it worked for Wild Bill Hickok, it will work for you too.

Sure, revolvers don't have flaws of a Semi, but they have their own set of problems, namely timing. IF the timing isn't EXACTLY right, the bullet isn't lined up with the barrel and you'll have potentially fatal, catastrophic failure. asap. Speaking of that, if you have a dud( squib), you definitely do NOT want to ignore it and just "pull the trigger". IF it detonates, later, in the cylinder, again, deadly, catastrophic failure. IDK about y'all, but I don't like things blowing up in my face. YMMV

Btw, I had to retire my 66, cause fire was coming out of the side, between the cylinder and forcing cone. I replaced it with a Ruger SP101.

My DW wanted a gun, so I took her to a gun show and let her handle EVERY type of pistol. She demanded that it feel good in her hand( carpal Tunnel). She settled on the Walther P99 in 9mm and now has a PPQ in .40S&W. No problem, she comfortable with them and is VERY accurate at the range. Me, after shooting every kind of pistol out there, S&W are the best. I've had ( and shot) Mod 59, 6906 and 6909, etc, but the M&P9 is my new competition pistol. Hands down the best pistol I've ever shot. Btw I carry a Kahr T40. Best DA trigger out there( Like the S&W revolvers).
I have never heard of a dud round firing after it rotated around out of alignment with the barrel in a revolver.
Even if it did, there is no reason to think it would cause a fatal injury.
I have seen revolvers that have blown up with the upper half of the cylinder gone from being fired with double loads of Bullseye or some other high intensity powder loaded by accident in reloads. Some powder burns, maybe small metal fragments, a cut or two, sometimes no injury at all other than hurt pride.
I know of many MORE accidents with autos, particularly Glocks, with their lighter trigger and no safety , where the shooter did not remove their finger from the trigger guard before shoving the gun down into the holster, and shot themselves in the leg, foot, or both.

You realize guys have done the exact same thing with DA revolvers and DA/SA pistols, right? How heavy the trigger is, or how long the pull is, has absolutely nothing to do with it. The number of guns in circulation, on the other hand...

I've gone back and forth over the past 40+ years of handgun shooting and currently carry one or more of 9mm Shield, 642 and Remington RM380 depending on environment, clothing and disposition.

I carried a revolver in uniform and switched between revolvers and 9mm autos as a detective. Just before I pulled the pin the department authorized 9mm for uniforms. By then I had short-timers syndrome and had reverted to a Colt Lawman .357 snub. At my last qualification I shot with a group of uniformed officers (mostly younger) who hadn't received their 9s yet. I was drawing from concealment (that's how I carried, so that's how I qualified) and shot a 92%. One of the younger guys started pontificating about how once they were allowed to carry autos like the detectives they would all be shooting in the 90s. I just pulled back my coat tail and grinned.

You can't buy proficiency, but you do have to pay for it.

I NOW have my own handgun/revolver range at home to alleviate that issue, and just picked up a brass catcher/net for my hand-loaded Rem 222 target practice. I guess that I am a bit sensitive to others trying to take the fun out of this great hobby...

I carry a j frame but sometimes would like to have a high capacity 9mm.

Nobody's opinion matters but your own......This is "kinda" like the old old Ford verses Chevy......9mm verses 45acp argument.......That never goes away.

I have carried a revolver in Fayettnam, and I am still around to talk about it.

Crime rate in Fayetteville NC
According to the table, the overall crime rate is 71% higher than the average of crimes committed in North Carolina. It is also 87% higher than the national average. When it comes to violent crimes, Fayetteville, NC shows a crime rate that is 103% higher than the North Carolina average.


Property crime in Fayetteville is actually a higher rate than Chicago. Violent crime slightly less than Chicago.

If you fancy revolvers, as I do also, you can use this to your advantage. There are many people out there who are taking 50 cents on the dollar for their old revolvers as credit towards the latest and greatest auto wonder. That translates, in some cases, to great deals on used revolvers. I just picked up a 99% Model 36 no dash for $339. Last year I traded a Gen 3 Glock 21 straight across for a circa 1966 5" Model 10-5 in near new condition.

Don't complain. Steal their "hand me downs"!

I was at he Philly airport in 2011 where I spoke with an Airport Cop who was carrying a .357 Magnum. Love me some .357 Magnum.

I donít have revolvers any more, not because I donít like them but because I no longer have cartilage in my trigger knuckle so any DA is difficult for me, so I stick to striker fired pistols.

One is not ill armed with a good revolver. Plus, there can be advantage to not having empty cases to hunt for and collect at the end of the day, too.

Default It's not just Me!!!

My family, though versed in firearms and safety aren't as familiar as the different 'conditions', safeties, decockers, how to tell if a gun is loaded, etc. ESPECIALLY the six DIFFERENT semi guns that I have. But I can hand anybody a revolver and they can tell whether it's ready to shoot and how to shoot it first try and if it doesn't fire, just pull the trigger again.. As long as this is true revolvers will not be obsolete.
