    If you can master the revolver, you will be able to shoot semiauto pistols well.

    I appreciate both revolvers and semi-autos, like the clubs in a bag of golf clubs, they all offer some advamtage for the right shot. Also, ammo distributors and many gun shops decided to make a secondary market out of the .22 rimfire availability. There are billions of rounds of .22 ammo sitting around the country in warehouses. I would be curious how many .22 rounds are veing produced today, bet it's a lot lower amount than 8 years ago.

    The author also had a mistake in his availability of ammo, fmj vs hollowpoints. Sure, today....no argument. Go back to about three months after the Sandy Hook elementary shootings, and we had lines out the doors looking for any kind of ammo to shoot. That lasted only a short time, but for .22 ammo, it lasted two years. I believe the .22 ammo shortage was due to prepper TV series at the time, compounded by the thought of our federal Govt. being off the rails during the b.o. administration, which we have found out, all our suspicians were true.

    If any of the idiots running against DJT for 2020 get in office, ammo availability will go into the toilet.

    Anyhow, if .38 special was good enough for Sgt. Friday and .45 LC was good enough for John Wayne, it is good enough for me.

    Having trouble deciding whether to take my Ruger SR9 S Pro to the ranch on Monday or my Taurus Model 66. Since I have snake shot for the 66, it will probably be on my hip. Also, if an oryx get after me, I would rather have a .357 magnum ready for service, would actually prefer a .50 cal rem. magnum in that situation.

    At contact ranges, gun against the bad guy, a revolver is superior, push the auto slide back a miniscule bit, and the gun will not fire. Revolvers will still fire and fire repeatedly in that scenario. I don't CCW for a long range gun fight, in fact, I will deter and avoid such any gun fight encounter as much as possible, while getting away as quickly as possible. It is when those efforts are fruitless that I am armed with a revolver. 357 magnum is a powerful 'leave us alone' messenger.

    Most old codgers like me went from revolvers to semi-automatics but I did it the opposite way. I first bought several 380 or 9mm semi-automatics before I started buying revolvers. Four of my last five purchases have been revolvers. There is just something about a revolver that you can't duplicate with a semi-auto.

    This is where I recommend a .357 Chiappa Rhino.

    .357 power with the felt recoil of a warm .38 load.

    Well, i have been look hard at the black steel blade sight, 3" barreled, six shot SP101 .327. Having shot a S&W 632 carry Comp pro a good bit, i like the .327 and believe it's every bit as close as the .357 as reported. The SP101 .357 is a five shot.
    I'll go .327 in a six no problem.

    I personally think everyone should own at least 1 semi and one wheelie. I own 2 wheel guns with eyes on another 2 to round out my collection. I'm good on my choices of Semi's.
