The real answer....is pick the gun that you shoot the best...and in whatever platform you're the most comfortable with....
We know what you mean ...but revolvers are pistols too ...
I agree with that to a certain degree. I own a few weapons & I feel guns are like tools. One tool is not a "does all" for one particular job but certain tools work better for a particular job. For HD in the home I like a 12 Gauge Shotgun & the A15 or a similar battle carbine's. I guess because of my background & experience I am more partial to those weapons for HD purposes & I feel they are more ideal & tailored for that type of work. Not saying a revolver or semi-auto pistol couldn't do the job but I just think that platform is better suited.
