I have found that over the years I tend to shoot the self loaders less when there is Snow on the ground.
So I Call it Revolver Season
It is nearing that time here in Minnesota that I prefer to not dig around looking for brass, But to enjoy quality time with my wheel guns.
I have recently picked up a early 50s S&W K22 and I believe we will get very aquinted soon
So enjoy "Revolver Season" and be safe
It's never revolver season at my house.
You don't know what you're missing Beefo! Everyone should have some revolvers. They are not necessarily the best for night fighting, but they are tops in the field and utterly reliable. And there's an excellent point made by 2sigs about digging around for brass in the snow.
I have shot my share of revolvers, and just never really took a liking to it. I don't know what it is, but I can't shoot them nearly as accurate as semi-autos either. It's probably because I've shot semi-autos from the beginning, but I don't know what it is. I may buy one down the road as a mountain gun but that will be a ways from now.

Many years ago we had some snow that stayed on the ground for a few days. Went out to a local creek and found a chunk of ice about the size of a double mattress. Reduced it to ice cubes before the day was over.
Last year we had some snow on a Saturday that was real pretty but melted off the same day.
Don't have much snow here in N. TX which is a good thing considering how people drive in this area.
Went to the range with my new to me Ruger Security Six yesterday and was much more accurate with it than my semi-auto.
S&W revolvers are the best
depending on your circumstances finding the brass is a pain
especially when you reload
it does make it much easier
wanna house swap for a few weeks in about 1-1/2 months? plenty of snow here then....usually....
