    I've had revolvers of some kind just about all my life... I like them because I can shoot them passably well, and they don't fling brass all over the place.
    Concealability and capacity goes to the auto's, but I wouldn't feel at all outgunned with a good revolver and a couple of speedloaders.
    Currently I only have a model 64, 4", and a newly acquired model 13, 4". Oh, and a Taurus 685, 2" ..... I am in hot pursuit of a Blackhawk 45 Colt/ACP convertible, and hopefully, a 357/38/9mm convertible.
    Until you have worked with a good K frame Smith, you simply don't know what a great trigger feels like.

    The 357 Magnum is my favorite handgun cartridge of them all. You can shoot some rip snortin' Magnums or you can tone it down and shoot some mild 38 Special.

    A K frame S&W in 357 is just about perfect, an N frame is almost as good.
    My K frame S&W 357 is my favorite. It’s the most enjoyable shooter I own and I have a Python so that’s sayin something.

    You mean there’s another type?

    Gunz are icky.
    Everyone needs a good revolver. There may come a time when you don't want to leave your bass behind.

    This is just for environmental reasons of course.

    This reminded me of an silly experience I had at a snooty indoor gun range.
    Their policy was ALL fired brass belonged to them. Regardless of whether it hit the floor or not. Of course the only ammo allowed on their range was brass cased.
    They even insisted on inspection before firing.
    So just to be a sh*t I bought out a moonclip revolver in 9mm. This guns moons were a particular PITA to unload. Doing that by hand was almost impossible. I had a special tool that made removing cases easy but they didn’t know that.
    Oh I had brass cased rounds all right.
    As I was shooting I would take a loaded moon from my range bag, insert, fire, return fired moon to range bag, repeat. Snooty RSO comes over to “inform” me all fired brass belongs to them. I asked him did my brass touch the floor? No? Did my brass even touch the table top? No?
    All fired brass belongs to us sir.
    Alright then Mr.RSO you can have the fired brass if you pick it out of MY moon clips.
    I handed him a fired moon.
    He looked at it, fiddled with it a bit, called me an asshole , then left me alone.
    I love revolvers. LoL.
