Obviously, being a Vietnam vet, . . . I am biased toward the 1911, . . .
But there is one undeniable factual difference that only comes through experience: a problem that surfaces with a revolver that prevents the weapon from being used, . . . is a problem that will at best be fixed ina few minutes, . . . but will most likely take a gun smith to fix, . . . BUT, . . . many times the problem with the semi auto is fixed with a mag change or working the action.
Revolvers were replaced by the military for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with price or budgets: they simply are inferior to semi auto pistols in a combat environment.
May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
