      Semi Auto For A Revolver Person

      Sems like I have been on this search forever. I have handles several semi autos, some which were not too bad, most just don't feel right in my hand. I keep picking up the S&W snubbies or the Ruger SP101 and things just feel right. I guess because I have never shot anything but revolvers and am just comfortable with them. My main reason for wanting semi suto is strictly capicity. 5 shots is probably plenty, but if I need more than 18 or 20 I'm probably in over my head anyway. Of course more capicity means bigger gun, bigger gun means harder to carry and keep concealed and comfortable. M&P, XD, SR9, P95, 1911, and Hi Power all don't feel too bad but are bigger guns. The Kahr, I think it was CW9, also felt OK, but only brings about 3 more rounds.

      I realize that I may be a little too hung up on capicity and 5 good hits well out weigh 5 good hits with 10 misses or bad hits. I am just wanting to look everything over as thouroughly as possible before making a decision. Are there any other things that I need to consider, or is carrying a bigger weapon not as big of an issue as I think it might be? Thanks for the insight.

      Why don't you go to a range that rents handguns and try a few semi-autos
      to see if any of them are to your liking. (go with the Sigs)

      I would love too. Problem is, no such thing exists in my area. I do have a buddy at work (who is a Sig guy) that offered to let me shoot his but we haven't been able to get together.

      Well that can make it a little harder to choose. I guess it just mind over matter, once you start shooting the auto's I'm sure you will get used to it. I did, now I need to remember that I have wheel guns in the safe. I took my GP 100 out yesterday, and put 100 rds. through it,and it bit my trigger finger.

      Many thousands of police officers have successfully transitioned from revolvers to Glock autoloaders over the last 15 years or so. I am a huge Glock fan, and was originally a revolver man, too. Glocks aren't pretty or shiny, but they are very reliable, sit low in the hand so they bounce less than comparable pistols on firing, are practically rustproof, and are simple to operate and maintain.

      Try a Glock.

      If you are a revolver guy, you should look into the SIG P250. They are DAO and very smooth.
