Can you fill all of your handgun needs with Revolvers?
1. your needs
2. your wants

What say you?
I don't know. Maybe. It's a good question.

The truth is I don't really feel I need a handgun at the moment. I don't feel any need for a concealed carry permit and don't really worry much about some one breaking into my house when I'm home.

But things could change. Some one could threaten me specifically, or the town could get more dangerous in general with a SHTF situation. So I do have a handgun. It's a semi auto, which I prefer over a revolver. If I were to buy any more hand guns, I'd look at semi autos first.

Can you fill all of your handgun needs with Revolvers?

NEEDS, yes a good 357 and the ability to reload can cover most bases.

WANTS, not in my lifetime,wants come and go like the wind.

I'm with Grizz...but, I think that is more age related...I believe he and I began shooting revolvers, while the younger crowd has been initiated with semi-autos such as the Glock.
I am, however, enamored with .22 cal semi-autos.....I think I may have a dozen or to shoot, cheap to shoot, etc, etc....
Are my needs probably...
My wants....a totally different story...
Some mornings it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps!

I did for many years, and could again if I had to. A good stainless steel Ruger .357 with a four inch barrel, would do anything that needs doing. But my Glock Mod 29 is lighter and carries more rounds.
He who hesitates is lost.

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space.

Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.

You can lead a fool to talk, but you can't make him think.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy, and sometimes I let her sleep.

There are damm few problems that can't be fixed, with a long handled shovel and a thirty ought six.
