Another reason I like revolvers better than autos is the fit in the hand. An auto has to have a shape that is able to house the magazine, therefore the grip shape is somewhat limited. On a revolver there is much more latitude in the shape of the grips, especially in a Ruger double-action where the frame is but a small projection of steel. This restriction on autos make them very unnatural for me to grab hold of. Whereas a revolver grip especially hand-shaped, subtle finger grooved ones, seem to be able to be grabbed quicker than an auto's grips and even allow adjusting the hand faster if the grip was not perfect. None of my autos seem to be like that, regardless what grip panels I try.
