    I think someone's implying that only old s are into revolvers and all the young folk are into the latest fads in jamomatics.

    I'm of the few exceptions to this rule.

    Geezer preference

    I'm 65 and have been shooting all my life. I now carry, and carry a snub revolver simply because it is small, concealable and light. I'm not concerned that it is only a .38 Special. I don't feel underguned. I put the shots where i want them and that's what counts. I own numerous autoloaders, however I have yet to find one that I trusted completely and I would stake my life on. Also, I think the revolver is much safer in everyday handling. I knew a woman nearly 40 years ago that accidently shot and killed herself with a hidden hammer semi-auto. So the story goes, she wasn't really a "shooter" and had an auto for protection. She didn't really "understand" how it worked and in futzing around with it, it went off and shot her in the chest. It was simply a matter of her not being trainned and having absolutely no mechanical knowledge of how the gun worked. What I like about double action revolvers is that they are as "safe as a brick at rest"! If you don't pull the trigger, they can't go bang. It doesn't get much better than that. Also, it makes you feel much safer when you stuff one in your pocket.

    I like you Charlie have been around a while. Carried stub noses for 40 + years. Wife bought a 1911 S&W. I started playing with it, and got me one. I'll never get rid of my revolovers, but these new autos work. I got one tuppaware gun, but it just don't move my soul. These new auto's are not the jam a matics that they were 25 to 30 years ago. I carry both on and off, just what ever strikes my fancy that day.

    I tried the 1911's and I hate the hammer and gip safety bite that is associated with carrying concealed. I love to shoot them, don't get me wrong. Alot of smackdown with a 230-gr .45 acp anything. But I encountered brass that just seemed to not want to keep the bullet tight, and when the slide cycled the bullet a 230-gr FMJ was rammed into the cartridge. This of course made me feel less confident of the Springfield GI's perfomance. But getting back to getting bitten when getting into a car by the hammer and grip safety.

    I guess 1911's are just not for me.....

    But my carry gun is a 2" 5 shot 44 loaded at 44 spl velosties. Still got alot of smackdown too.

    Wow, I just made it into the 60+ category by a few weeks.

    I actually like all guns but I do have a fondness for S&W's. I have a 36,60,19,10,66 and 29 currently.

    I am just as likely to go out the door with a 2" snubbie,A Kel-tec or a mini Glock in my pocket. A lot of times I let the weather and conditions dictate what I carry.

    I also like Glocks and 1911s so I guess I just like most handguns.

    This is an interesting topic. I am 42, but I have to admit that I didn't get the revolver bug until 2 years ago. I was always into all the fancy new semi-automatics. Plus I always believed if you didn't own a Glock, you didn't own a gun.. Then I discovered Kimber

    I have to admit I still own semi-automatics 3 to 1 to revolvers, but I truly do enjoy shooting all of them equally.

    At 63 I don't care if is wheel or auto as long as it goes bang when I want it to. I would like a Gatlin gun though.

    I like all guns single shot, manual multiple, semi auto and full auto. Just can't afford ammo for full auto. Thats a shame.

    Bob, The Auto poll listed names by age group. This Poll doesn't seem to do so. Is there a reason or am I not looking in the right place?

    I'll be 60 in August.
    I'm getting the age.

    Jury is still out on the wisdom part.

    Carry and love to shoot both, but 8 to 1 in favor of revolvers right now.

    I'm surprised to find my age group, (50-59), leads the way. Good to know this is a "well seasoned" forum! Bill T.

    I just bought my first in a Taurus Raging Bull .500 w/ the 4" barrel. Now to convince the wife I need a S&W .460XVR as well a few S&W Snub noses.
