    Post DECLINING REVOLVER PRODUCTION CONTINUES

    After today, it's all historical.

    I guess I'm part of the declining group. I have far more revolvers than I do auto-loading handguns.

    Actually, I prefer a revolver over than a semi-auto. I know they don't hold as many rounds as a semi, but with a speed loader, they can be reloaded fairly quickly. And, if you make very shot count, you may not need more than 6 or 8 shots.

    I, also, like the fact that if there's a failure to fire, it doesn't affect a revolver like it does a semi-auto; just keep pulling the trigger and keep shooting.

    Mainly, I just like the looks of most revolvers over the looks of a semi.

    However, each one has its pros and cons.

    It is more a matter of looks than firepower for my choices.

    Agree with all of the above, but one. I have equal numbers of each, although one of the revolvers doesn't lock up anymore and has been "retired".
    And, while still functional, a .32 ACP has a worn out barrel and isn't real accurate any more.
