I've been reading some internet articles and it seems that there aren't many who advocate the use of a single action revolvers for self defense. These same people like to advocate a sturdy single action for defense against four-legged creatures such as bears but view them as inadequate against two-legged theats. Usually they point to speed and having to cock the hammer as as faults. If its fast enough to stop a bear attack which can happen faster than many realize, why then is it too slow and clumsy for street use?
I know most S/A's are too big to conceal properly but that is rarely brought up.
Any thoughts on this?
