From '74 to '99, (roughly a quarter-century) I carried a snub-nosed revolver in .38 Special. Loaded with 158-grain semi-jacketed hollow-points. I carried one in the military, so that's what I was used to. I finally put it away in the gunsafe, and bought a semi-auto in 9mm.

My daughter had always liked shooting my revolver, so it was an 'extra' college graduation present. She still carries it in her car.

I hope she remembers to lock it every time she leaves it unnattended.

She keeps it in a quick-release safe, that's bolted in. She's well-versed in everything from law to safety to maintenance/cleaning to marksmanship, and even holster draw. I'm quite proud of my little twerp (I mean, my little girl! Yeah, that's what I mean... :o)

I use revolver’s at various times for very specific tasks that they do better than other options.
I mean a customized ruger bisley does 44 mag and above really well for its size and weight.
Indestructible, reliable and accurate.
A hammerless 642 in a jacket pocket isn’t going to get bound up in clothing thru all 5 rounds.
You can also contact fire all of them in a target..
22lr revolvers for varmit dispatch using snake shot and light sub sonic ammo.
Also big time cool factor
