    S&W 696 A 3 Inch 5-Shot 44 Special. A little heavy, but carried it for awhile.

    Anyone have one of the new snake guns? Specifically the King Cobra?

    Thinking about picking one of those up, along with the anticipated new Python at SHOT 2020.

    NOTHING is more reliable than a revolver. if I could only have one gun it would be a Colt Python in 357 magnum. I can't say I've ever shot anything that had so much kick it wasn't enjoyable, in fact the enjoyment has always been directly in proportion to the size of the round. A couple I've been fortunate to shoot include a Smith & Wesson Lew Horton Special in 44mag with a 2.5" barrel and a Ruger Blackhawk in 357 Maximum (a cartridge case .315 inches longer than a standard .357 Mag) both of which were amazing guns to shoot and in the top 5 weapons I have had the opportunity to shoot.
    For all the young ladies in this thread complaing about the kick of a revolver in a larger round perhaps you should stick to sewing

    To the OP yes you should absolutely pick up a wheel gun. They are wonderful to shoot and extremely accurate.

    I enjoy revolvers as much as the next guy but hey, let's be real. Revolvers are far more complicated with many more parts than a typical polymer wondergun. For example, if the cylinder timing is just a tiny bit off, it can screw up everything. Just look how many parts there are in each one:

    I guess I'm being pedantic today.

    Iíve never seen any type of gun run 100% reliable. Iíve seen glocks fail, AKís go down, and even had a revolver jam up. Tell me how tf THAT happens. Couldnít even open the cylinder.

    Best Iíve ever seen is that X should be more reliable than y. Doesnít necessarily mean it is or will be.

    I can diagnose a lot of issues with just a punch in the field on a Glock. You can't do that with a revolver.

    I think your being more ignorant than pedantic if you think a measure of reliability is based on how many parts are used in the manufacturing of a firearm. There are several more important factors when it comes to reliability in a firearm only some of which are: Design, Manufacture, Material, Maintenance, etc.
    We all know of weapons that had to have parts added to them in subsequent releases to make the weapon more reliable
    One could argue to use less parts to do more work could come at a cost of reliability while having more parts to accomplish a complicated action would aid in reliability
    .
    As far as " If the cylinder timing is just a tiny bit off, it can screw up everything"
    If we're going to use "If" problems here is a small list of "ifs"
    Slamfire
    Out-of-battery discharge
    Hammer follow
    *Failure to feed
    *Rim lock
    *Stovepipe
    *Failure to extract
    *Magazine failure
    All of which could cause injury or death to you (*) or others (**)
    Other than a new gun (from a questionable manufacture a friend of mine purchased) that was returned. I have never personally expereanced timing issues with any of my revolvers.
    On the other hand I have personaly had 5 of the above issues and have witnessed 2 others none of which was with a revolver.

    That may be true however, I have never had to diagnose "a lot of issues" with any of my revolvers while in the field.

    "One could argue to use less parts to do more work could come at a cost of reliability while having more parts to accomplish a complicated action would aid in reliability"

    So lets hear it, without the use of another logical fallacy.

    Injury or death from a stove pipe? Really? I would like to see some statistics on that one...

    There is a reason the militarys of the world, LEO agancys, federal agencys, swat teams and the vast majority of armed citizens of the world have moved away from revolvers. And its not because of their reliablility.
