I don't blame him.  He didn't want to end up like Spider.

Or Tommy.

Q
You should get a needler.
That's my conceal carry.

Are six rounds of .357 magnum enough?

For some people, it's not. [...]
A 6 shot 357 magnum isn't a poodle, it's a bull moose. I've never felt outgunned with one, and likely never will.

Well put.  My advice for the question is having a gun with a lower ammo capacity does come with some risks (if not properly trained), and one should understand those risks and be ready to make some calculated decisions, especially when the heat is on.

I'll always prefer a semi.  More shot capacity, more easily modded, easier to reload.

If you are worried about it jamming, clean the f**ker.

I'm not planning for the OK Corral over here.  If any confrontation I might get into requires more than six shots, I'm probably f**ked anyway.

I'd rather have the extra ammo for when that huge adrenaline dump settles down and you can actually work your way onto target.

Are you 9mm, 10mm, .45acp, etc.?

I've had everything from a .380 through .40.

I was hot for a 1911 for a long time but never got one.

Nobody where I live carries 10mm ammo, so I haven't owned a 10mm handgun either.

I am.  I'm going to be the guy who gets bit and conceals the wound, insisting I'm fine as I get sicker and sicker.  You know what happens after that.

I like stock guns now. The mods took up too much cash, and didn't add much in the end except to make the guns jury bait.

I enjoy having a plain, powerful, and reliable weapon right from the factory.

And I like the little bonuses that come with revolvers. The fantastic Hogue grips that come on many of them, and the exquisite single action trigger pull. They don't sound scary in casual conversation, and you don't see them being discussed in the media very much. Furthermore, they'll be one of the last weapon types to be banned, if we ever see another ban in the US (which I personally believe we will). I'm no Fudd, and I know "ban proof" is a much maligned term, but revolvers are about as close as you can come to the concept.

^ All points I've considered as well when reaching my decision.  I always assumed pump-action shotguns would be "ban proof" as well.

Not models like the Mossberg persuader, 590A1, Shockwave, etc, etc. Too many brands and models to list really. I remember the tube limit for the last proposed ban was like 5+1. I had a Persuader that held 7+1.

Misses in such situations are unacceptable. If you can't hit the people shooting at you, don't pull the trigger. You could hit somebody else, and that comes with a crap-ton of legal, moral, and mental anguish. If someone's in a shootout, they don't have the luxury of waiting for an adrenaline dump to settle down. They'll be getting shot at. By the time anything settles down biologically, that person might (and probably would) be shot or dead already.

The goal should be to learn and train to fire accurately while under physical and mental pressure, not to still have enough ammo left after sending bullets where they shouldn't go, or waiting too long to defend one's self. If someone can't hit "center mass" at handgun distances, then they should be escaping, not risking the lives and safety of other innocent people.

Please understand that my reply to your comment was in no way personal. I'm merely discussing its subject matter.
