I agree with you, too. Also, the Yankee Marshal was agreeing with us, too. I think he was poking fun of people who are semi-automatic lovers and would not consider a revolver. Revolvers are beautiful!

There are revolvers that are very cool and others that are just crap, l have and shoot a Ruger Blackhawk with a slightly longer barrel chambered for a 357mag cartridge.

It is a blast to shoot although it is not one for concealed carry.

Also have a small revolver chambered in 32 caliber that might work for a lady's concealed carry weapon in her purse.

Not worth the $1800 they are charging for it. It is only a 22 cal weapon. Will cause more problems, I believe than its worth.

When I was  rookie cop back in the 80's most southern departments would only let us carry a revolvers. They said they were safer than auto hand guns.
#1 you had to pull the trigger or cock the hammer then pull the trigger. Also we could only use hollow points and not round ball.
Most dect. could only carry 38's and street cops could carry 38 or 357. So I had a Colt Dimondback 38 and a 686 S&W 357mag on a 4in. frame or barrel.
Arkansas toothpick in one boot and a 5 shot S&W 38 in the other. Most all the Troopers even carried 686 smith. You see you could pull your gun on a cop. Little blue steel in the dark and I could pull my 686 nickle with it black Pack Mayer Grips in the dark it just shines and make your blood run cold. But hey I do own a semi 9m smith but would own more if money was there. So That dude in the video don't like them but he sure had a table full. Just saying.

Actually, I do want to have a revolver.  One of the first handguns I fired (as a kid) was a 38.  It was easy to handle, and pretty can-tastic accurate [smile]   I also fired a 357 Magnum with a loooong barrel.  I didn't do so well.  An 85 pound weakling and a 357 and bent elbows equals being knocked out and a scar on the forehead.  Next reunion, I will show you the scar. 

But I think a 38 Revolver would be fun to shoot for close-in targets.  After I fulfill my wish list of guns (and Cris' too), I will look towards a 38 revolver.

By the way, Cris and I looked at a lot of revolvers for her.  Because she is so tiny and doesn't have a lot of strength in her hands and wrists, we decided that a enclosed (hammerless) pistol or a pistol with a hammer was too much for her hands to negotiate in a defense situation.
