    I really like the revolver DA action, very forgiving of mistakes or a change of heart.

    For hunting or areas where the primary threat is animals, I'd look to my 686.
    For areas where the threat is humans, a semi auto.
    If I'm doing pocket carry (I normally don't) I'd look at a hammerless or shrouded hammer revolver.

    Same here. My S&W 940 and an extra moon clip or two gets carried more than any other semi auto. Why?
    1. I like it.
    2. I have been carrying and shooting it for almost 25 years.
    3. Conceals easily.
    4. I like it.

    Having spent over 2 months in a sling following shoulder surgery my often carried SW 38 special has fallen in favor to any of my Glocks. Too hard to reload! The semiautomatic with just one inserted magazine has been far more reassuring than the snubbie.

    The .44 Rem Magnum is my go-to, easy to reload, easy to get components, easy to go from 700 fps to 1150 fps...

    Not powder finicky, cast, JHP, doesn't matter, large enough for my club like fingers, don't need f$%&(#$ tweezers to work with it.


    If you can't kill it with a 250 grain hard cast slug going 1150 fps, you need a rifle.
