Now there might be some of you who aren’t very big fans of revolvers and that’s okay, ‘to each his own’ I say. Even though you can carry more ammo with a semiautomatic pistol, the one thing a good revolver won’t do, is jam when you fire it.
There’s a reason revolvers have been around as long as they have, they’re reliable. Now I’m not saying you have to carry a revolver, carry whatever you feel comfortable with.
The snubnose revolver’s small size and short sight radius do not lend themselves to target-grade accuracy, but with practice reasonable groups are attainable, and are accurate enough for the gun’s intended purpose.
It is also a reliable gun, given that it is easy to handle and fire. It works well for quick-response situations. Furthermore, snub nose revolvers can quickly fit into holsters, allowing you to carry them as conveniently as possible.
The benefit of a ‘snubby’ is, their low capacity also lets you practice tricky reloads without going through a ton of ammo. In today’s market, having a high rep low round count firearm really helps the budget when you can still perform reloads without blowing through 15-20 rounds of ammo.
One advantage of the revolver in home defense is that it is easier to operate and learn to shoot. There isn’t much to shooting a revolver: simply open the cylinder, insert bullets, close the cylinder and pull the trigger.
So sit back and see if any of the pistols in the video below are worth your time to check-out, who knows, if you don’t have one, you might just see one that you might like to have. If there is a snubby that wasn’t on the list that you think should have been there, please mention it in the comment section below.
