Revolvers far outnumber autos, three dozen to ten. Three of those are 1911's, most the rest are .22's.

I believe I am at about 50% revolvers; 30% long guns, and 20% semi autos.

It's about a 2-1 ratio, autos over revolvers. Actual count is 13-6. I like the fact that I don't have to pick up brass with my wheelguns, but find cleaning autos much less of a hassle.

You guys are doing too much cleaning if that's an issue.

Used to be semi-autos were all I had. Now revolvers outnumber the bottom-feeders 2:1. This is likely to increase in the future. I too find cleaning revolvers to be a pain in the behind but love shooting 'em.

I only have semi-autos, but the wife has a revolver. I would love to get a revolver, thinking a .357mag or larger. Also wanting to get a Sig P290rs, not sure what I want first..... Probably the Sig as it will be cheaper and I already have the ammo for it.

I used to hate revolvers but I think I am coming around after shooting my wife's.

For handguns, I only have a revolver. To be fair, it's my only handgun so far, and I haven't decided what my next will be. If you count rifles then no I don't only have revolvers. I bought my SP101 with the intention that if I never bought another one I would be happy with it as my "all around" handgun.
