Revolver vs Semi Auto - which is more accurate?
I was talking with the local gun club IDPA guy and he also shoot combat and he says you need different guns as semi autos are not accurate enough to be competitive in combat shooting. The favored gun is a S&W 686 with a 6" barrel for combat.
What he's basically saying is autos are not capable of 2" groups at 25 yards.
I'm not a revolver fan and didn't like the feel of a 686 at all and went ahead and bought (on order) an XDm 5.25" comp in 9mm and don't see why it wouldn't be sufficiently accurate.
Is one style of handgun inherently more accurate than another?
Wouldn't an SA auto be superior to a DA revolver for target shooting, which is essentially what combat is?
