    Verona looks to be as far away from everything as Corbin is. We're lucky, and have three pretty good gun dealers here. If everyone around you is high, maybe you could just use them to decide what you want. Then you could buy it online from Bud's, or take a road trip there like I've done in the past.

    If you decide to buy local, compare the price asked to Bud's

    Maybe the local shop will match it. Some do, some don't.

    I do indeed know Joe - I have not taken any of his classes but have burned powder with him. (IDPA matches) Fine Fellow and I recommend his classes to people looking at CCW -

    Okay, if you have a Laura Croft style weapon's belt with pre-mounted clips, you probably aren't going to get a revolver to reload as fast as a semi-auto; certainly not two revolvers. On the other hand, there is no reason, with normal dexterity and desire and practice that you cannot become significantly faster with the right revolver than most people are with a semi-auto. Check out http://splodetv.com/fast-revolver-reload to see what can be done with a revolver and a rack of speed loaders. (Or rent the second Dirty Harry movie and watch the participants on the "alley" course.)

    You would need a top-break, or a swing out, or a roll out style of revolver to go with the speed-loader; and you'd need to practice. Still, even some of the old, single action black-powder revolvers could be reloaded pretty swiftly by swapping cylinders. This can work with modern revolvers too; I remember, as a kid, seeing a Deputy Sheriff carrying a .38 with multiple, loaded cylinders (not speed-loaders) attached to his belt.

    If you like a semi-auto best, go for it; but, if reloading speed is all that is keeping you away from a revolver, honestly, seriously, check out http://splodetv.com/fast-revolver-reload to see where the upper limit for revolver reloading gun-craft lies .

    You will hear many recomendations regarding the gun you need so I will try to steer you correctly before all these others give you bad advice.

    Check out the Smith & Wesson M&P line of Semi Auto's you will probably like one of the selection. Try before you buy however.

    Good luck.

    I purchased one of these guns March 11th I really like it, I just can not find a holster for it to carry INSIDE the waste band I would like to have the hard plastic type especially for warm weather..Theresa
