I have made no secret that I prefer revolvers over semi-auto pistols. I must admit that I have been suckered into semi-autos lately just because they seem to offer advantages for CC. They are thinner and usually hold more rounds. Still, I have really been considering going back to revolvers for CC. Specifically my new .38spl Colt Detective Special SF-VI (pictured below). I think the Colt is a great EDC for me. I feel comfortable with the .38spl caliber. I think it is powerful enough for SD and I am comfortable with six rounds. The Colt is a six round gun compared to the five round S&W snubbies and that extra round means a lot to me for some odd reason. Six rounds just makes me so much more comfortable than five. I also shoot revolvers better than I shoot semi-autos. At least I think I do. The only real issue is overcoming that feeling of being a dinosaur for carrying a six shot revolver. It certainly does not have the same cool factor as carrying some high tech wonder gun. I also wonder if it would have the same intimidation factor if I ever had to brandish it. Let's face it. Often pulling a gun is enough to end a threat without firing it. Would a small revolver appear less threatening to a modern bad guy? Would they be less likely to turn tail and flee from grampa and his archaic six gun than they would someone pointing a more modern gun at them?
