A Revolver Purchase
I did it. I took the plunge. I purchased a revolver.
I was going to purchase the new 386 7 shot .357 in scandium. My thoughts were a lightweight major power defense gun. I was a little intimidated by the MSRP of $869.00. It was a bit expensive for an experiment.
One of my co-workers had a 2.5” model 19-3 he was willing to part with for under $350.00. I picked this up instead. I give up the lightweight portion of my experiment as this little L frame weighs about as much as my 1911.
Here are my questions for your consideration.
How comfortable are you with 6 shots? Do you carry a spare mag for your auto for extra ammo or in case of malfunction? (Mike you are in exceptional circumstances)
Why does this revolver clear leather quicker? Is it my imagination?
Is the major power factor of the 140grain .357 a good thing due to power or a bad thing due to slower follow-up shots?
Is the dependability of a revolver over an auto worth the change?
What other plusses and minuses come to mind?
