I couldn't have said it better. I have a friend that says that he never met a gun that he didn't like but I too prefer the classic Steel guns with real wood or Bone grips. Carried in a real leather holster. I prefer a revolver of S&W Hand Ejector Design but usually carry a S&W single stack semi Auto. I like the Traditional double action on my auto loaders. In practice with these I shoot mostly 2 and 3 shot groups starting with the hammer down. With the revolver it is almost all double action shooting.
