Sometimes I think life would be easier if John Moses Browning (pbuh)* hadn't invented the auto-pistol. It'd be less for me to think about. I'd own 3 or 4 total of various sizes, one .22 and the others .38/.357 and I='d never have to worry about safety catches and manual of arms and malf drills with a tappa and a racka and a banga.
I mean, what DO we really get with those auto chuckers? A few more rounds to shoot? Fast reloads? If you need to shoot more than 5 bring a spare revolver. Or bring friends.
I say 4 revolvers are needed and I only own 3. Where is my hole? Medium length barrel. I have a 6 inch barrel for the house, a snubbie for the pocket, but I am missing something in a Model 13 or 65 size for a belt holster and CCW that way. Perfection. Ease of ammo storage. A good carbine offering. No one complains the .357 is not enough cartridge for the job. I wouldn't be casting about with thoughts about the semi-auto if the caliber was inadequate (i have no idea where i was going with that last sentence). Revolver shooting is America's martial art, with none of that kicking or chopping or 'heeeeeYAH!' shouting.
Yeah, life as a gunnie would be simpler. But if wishes were horse we'd all be eating steak.
If the whole semi-auto fad had proven to be a flash in the pan that petered out in 1912 or so, Colt would still be making the Python. You'd be able to get .41 and .44 special ammo at WalMart. And we'd argue over caliber, still. I'd still be fine with the .357.
*(and yes, I was being facetious about JMB inventing the semi-auto form. He just perfected it. Probably for all time.)
