I started at age 5 with grampa using a Ruger Single Six. At age 7 a Colt Python 4 inch with .38 spcl.
Now at 36 I still tend to buy more revolvers than semiautos. Though my carry is all semiauto, with the exception of when in the hog woods of East Texas. Then I open carry my Ruger Black Hawk .41 Mag.
Most of my hand gun shooting is with revolvers. Not having to pick up brass is a big plus though it is not the main reason. The main reason is I just like to shoot them more. I can shoot bith semi, and revolver about the same the grips on most revolvers just fit my hand better.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
