I would hate to have to relearn how to use a single action revolver, but that doesn't mean that it isn't suitable for what ever task. I use a SA pistol and a double action revolver because of the similarities in the manual of arms. :scatter:
Agreed - with one Caveat: the pistol HAS TO GO BANG. As long as the weapon is kept in working mechanical order, than yes, any weapon will work. I routinely carry a Blackhawk in .45LC / .45 ACP as my woods gun. Big hole, quick handling, in .45ACP spare rounds can be carried in a cheapo 1911 mag, and doesn't raise any eyebrows if seen. "If you can't do it with 6, get another line of work"
If the shooter as some familiarity with the weapon they are using in SD, yes, the weapon won't be a major factor. But, if that same person had lots of experience with SA autos, but Zero with DA revolvers, they may be in from some trouble. Expecially with a 2 inch snubnose. I've seen many a man who said they knew how to shoot a snubby, but when they did it on the range, fast, they could not hit the broad side of a barn.
Now stupekid is a 10" POSCAR fan and Star Bowl Movement (chopped to shit also.) He has so little real experience with things like SA/DA Sigs, or Glocks, or revolvers, not to mention bolt guns and lever guns and pumps (and shotguns he is just scared shitless of) that you know he would goof the shot, if not just throw down the gun and run (or plead for his life.)
I own a little bit of everything, DA revolver, a couple of semi auto's , a snubbie, a .22 LR, all which I practice with. After firing over 7.000 rds through my .44 Magnum Vaquero last year, I would feel comfortable using it as a defensive firearm within its limitations.
What the nitwit misses, is when I said "used within its limitations". I would prefer to use my Combat Commander if I had a choice in a defensive situation. Try reading what people say, rather than reading what you want to hear, dipstick.
