In a way, it is too bad that their arn't more options for the revolver shooter in IDPA. However I understand their reasoning behind it. You guys mentioned several of the moon clip revolvers that are hard to come by. I have a 627 PC that isn't legal anymore for IDPA. It uses and 8 shot moon clip, but for IDPA you could only load six. It has a compensator that can be removed and replaced with a blank. However, dispite all that, it is illegal because the barrel is too long.
I guess the suggestion about using the Model 10 with speedloaders or something similar is what IDPA wants you to do. So why try to swim upstream ?
You know the rest. In the books you have read
How the British Regulars fired and fled,
How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
From behind each fence and farmyard wall,
Chasing the redcoats down the lane,
Then crossing the fields to emerge again
Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.
