10 Reasons Why You Should Own a Revolver
« on: March 19, 2017, 12:48:58 PM »
Many new shooters have never owned or fired a revolver, but the tried-and-true revolver still has a lot going for it — and a lot of life left in the tank if all the new versions being offered today are any indication.

Here are 10 reasons why you should consider adding one to your stable as soon as possible.

Revolvers have a style that’s retro-cool.

The double-action revolver defines reliability.

Nothing is smoother than a finely tuned revolver trigger.

Magnum: .327, .357, .41, .44, .460 and .500. Nothing else needs to be said.

The craftsmanship of a good revolver is some of the best mechanical engineering you may ever see.

Wheelguns connect us with our shooting history.

When introducing others to the sport, the simplicity of the revolver can be comforting to the novice shooter.

There are some competitions open to revolver shooters only.

Because of their craftsmanship and novelty, revolvers start conversations at the range.

It is a gun you don’t yet own.

12. You don't have to search for your cases for reloading.
13. When reloading you don't have to worry if your light or heavy loads will cycle properly.
14. You can test for flinch by skipping a chamber.

@andy58-in-nh, where do you get the Hornady?  I've had some trouble finding it.

I can buy it at one of three local merchants here in southern New Hampshire. But you can also get their ammo here.

Don't limit yourself to just double action revolvers.

My whole life I have depended on a Colt Single action army .45 (2nd gen) with three notable exceptions;

My first 45 auto, which was some sort of 1911 - I don't even remember the brand... I threw that one at a griz when it stove-piped, and up a tree I went. I traded that gun off the next week on another Peacemaker.

Recently, I went to a .44mag Taurus, which was fine, but hard to shoot one-handed... I'm getting older, and running ain't an option... so I was thinking toward more firepower.

And my current Rock Island 45 ACP 1911, finally willing to try semi-auto again... Mainly for compliance with my son, and the ability to duplicate ammo and parts...

It's a nice enough gun and all, but don;t be surprised if I go back to the Colt.

I have one very much like I use as a parka pocket gun in winter. If need be, I can shoot multiple times at close range (arm's length) right through my parka. No worries about smokestack jams and the like.

My woods sidearm has always been a Ruger Blackhawk 45 LC with the 4-5/8in bbl. I don't load it as hot as I used too. I used to sometimes get deformed headstamps. I've since backed off. I have utmost confidence in the weapon.

Not to me. I used to dream about having my own quad-50,unlimited amounts of ammo,barrels,and loaders,and unlimited amounts of hordes or screaming Chinese running up a hill at me with no cover.
