I am the ultimat revolver fanboy. I love revolvers and will always believe they are inherently more reliable. But, your scenario is flawed if you want to favor the revolver.

If you took 100 brand new 1911's and loaded six rounds in each and took 100 brand new S&W model 10's loaded with six rounds, I am certain the you would not be able to go 600 rounds without a jam in the autos, yet, the revolvers would.

In you scenario, the single most reliable weapon for that "one" shot would be a cocked and locked 1911. The round is already chambered, the gun is cocked. Short of a dud round, it will fire.

If you wanted TWO utterly reliable shots, I think the odds go back to the revolver.
