Everyone is talking about snub nosed revolvers for new shooters. Here at Gun Nuts, we have beaten this topic to death. I even have an article coming up in US Concealed Carry Magazine on this various topic that looks at issues such as grip strength, trigger pull, and shootability. However, instead of rehashing over 3000 words and quite a few articles, I will simply re-print this quote from Tiger McKee.
Most people think revolvers are easy to shoot and operate, and for some reason they think this is especially true for women shooters. This is simply not the case, regardless of the shooter’s gender. The trigger on most revolvers is longer and heavier than the majority of semi-autos. – Tiger McKee
Tiger is right. If there is one thing I learned from firing over 10,000 rounds through a revolver last year, it’s that these things are hard to shoot well.
