Just coming back from The "Gunshine State" and Massad Ayoob had released an article about revolver handling. I am good with Semi's but there is something about a good "Wheelgun" and I own a couple of revolvers, both of them are "Smifs". I do need to buy some more "speedloaders" though.
I shamelessly clipped this from Massad Ayoob, I met him at NRAAM in Atlanta in 2017 and he is a really nice guy despite being well known by EVERYONE, and knows EVERYONE, kinda like Old NFO is gracious and friendly to everybody.
The double action revolver was the standard American police sidearm for about 80% or more of the 20Century, and remains a staple among law-abiding armed citizens in the 21. It will be with us for a while yet. I was an “early adopter” of the semiautomatic police service pistol back in the early 1970s and still carry one as a primary self-defense handgun, but the revolver remains my choice as a backup gun for several reasons, which we can discuss at another time.
