Thanks for the help!

That 'gun store' place is a tourist trap, right??

Yes. Any place that gets a large chunk of business from renting machineguns should be seen as a tourist trap.

You really need to shoot a variety as well. I went shooting with a friend and my glock kept jamming whenever he shot it. It was fine when I was shooting it, and then I would hand it over and it would jam almost immediately. It took a second to figure it out, but he was using a really soft grip and his limp wrist was taking up too much of the recoil to properly chamber the next round. I told him to stick with his little revolver until he learned to shoot like a man.

So, revolvers aren't for men?

I shoot revolvers a lot and it's not because you shoot like a girl that the gun won't cycle. With a revolver (esp a cowboy action) the grips are designed so that you use the recoil to roll the gun with your wrist thus absorbing the recoil. It takes a little time to unlearn that habit. You can't shoot a .41 and expect your wrist to hold all that recoil without wearing yourself out.

Depending on the mission and environment, some military units still issue revolvers. I was made familiar with the S&W 686 in the military. There are some light weight revolvers that I would prefer for daily carry sometimes, but my daily carry gun has been a semi-auto S&W.

If I were to shoot a guy in his left leg with a semi-auto and shoot him in his right leg with a revolver of the same caliber, I doubt he'd have a preference.

Every one is right about shoot 1st, buy 2nd. I rented 30+ different pistols untill I found what "felt" right in my hand. I own a Springfield XD-9 and absolutely love it! Take your time, put rounds down range and decide. I'm sure any one here would be willing to let you try theirs when ever we get together an shoot.

I'm a much better shot with a revolver mostly because that's what I grew up shooting. I think the same as what has been said. Find what you like, practice with it, and become proficient.

I think it's compensating for a tiny set of.....lug nuts! That thing is probably a sluggish sloth of a beast, unless it's used as a flotation device!
