From a technical standpoint, revolvers have been obsolete for over a hundred years. However many obsolete objects and practices retain their place in society when that object or practice has a significant enough impact on the culture. There are many that still practice blacksmithing, homebrewing, digging holes with hand shovels, framing with a claw hammer, driving a carbureted automobile, and many other antiquated and obsolete practices and tools that have long been supplanted by technological advances. Yet they remain prevalent and probably always will. Maybe 100 years ago folks woed the decline in popularity of cap and ball revolvers at the shooting range, but I know some people that still enjoy theirs.
