Form follows function. If you use handguns for several different purposes...all handguns are not for self defense, you would logically have several different guns. I shot mainly for fun. Therefore, I have several revolvers. I choose pocket carry for self defense so I choose to carry a snub revolver in my pocket. However, if I was expecting trouble, I assure you I would carry one of my 1911's or my Browning HP which are better suited for combat. Then again, if I was hunting, back to a revolver in a magnum cartridge. In short, it always depends on what you are envision it is going to be used for and the conditions of use. No one platform does it all when it comes to handguns...the same reason there is more than one club in a golf bag.

Three shots are not a "group"...they are a "few".
If the Bible is the literal, infallible, unerring word of God...where are all those witches I am supposed to kill?
