I have revolvers, semi's, M1a... and I would actually recommend a revolver for a first time gun buyer (.38 special in a .357) and revolvers are on my wish list.
I don't think one would be under gunned, defensively with a revolver. Frankly if I was in combat, I would probably prefer a revolver as my side arm.
Dear Santa, I would like a .45 single action, a .44 mag long barrel with a scope mount, a Judge or Governor would be fun.....
I will be glad when the hysteria is over...
Yea, revolvers are cool.
