I used to be a semiauto guy...
...until, two years ago, I underwent open heart surgery. In the aftermath (and I am speaking about two weeks later) I was so weak I could not shoot any of my autos with any kind of reliability. I was just too weak and I would limp wrist every other shot. Thankfully, I had a revolver I had kept from my youth so I could do some recreational shooting to help me out with the post surgery blues. Now I have a brace of them, and my primary carry gun is a Dan Wesson. I figured that if I ever have to defend myself I could get badly hurt- and I still want to be able to shoot back.
