I usually carry either a 26 or a 19. I admire the design for its simplicity, but beyond that they're nothing special. There are lots of other guns in this world with wonderful records of reliability and a bit of elegance.
Revolvers are coming back in vogue in California.
Ten years ago in California, revolvers were most likely found on one or two lower shelves off to the side in most gun shops. Half of those revolvers were single action revolvers primarily of interest to the then popular cowboy action shooters. Then along came “THE ROSTER.” I won’t go into detail about what that is other than to say that fewer and fewer autoloading pistols are mentioned therein every year as manufacturers update and market current and new designs who cannot, or will not make them compliant for “THE ROSTER.” A model must be approved on THE ROSTER in order to be sold new at a retail establishment. In the next few years it’s entirely feasible that nearly all models approved on THE ROSTER will be revolvers because they do not require all the same features for approval.
The result is that in the last couple of years more and more double action revolvers are showing up on more shelves and gun clerks are happy to push revolvers on new shooters who don’t harbor as much negativety toward them as the nutty tacticool shooters.
I personally always liked and preferred revolvers, especially Smith and Wesson’s.
