>>28596205
And on the flip side
>semi autos are better because they hold more rounds and are clip fed
When not talking about C96es.
>>
>>28596205

But anon, that's true from a certain point of view.

For a recreational handgun that sees occasional use, a revolver has no mags, ammo issues etc and you can usually fire a huge variety of loads from one gun. Something has to break for it to start fucking up.
>>
>>28596436
*tips internally*
>>
>>28596215
But C96s hold more rounds than revolvers AND are clip-fed.
>>
>>28596485
I know. That's why I said that they don't count.
Sometimes quality is better than quantity though...bears, for instance.
>>
They are mostly. Revolvers don't double-feed, stovepipe, fail to go into battery, etc., but when they do malfunction, it's catastrophic.
>>
Get off the Yeager sauce op

Revolvers are more reliable. Less moving parts make any machine more reliable. It isn't rocket surgery.

No magazine issues... which are the number one failure on a semi auto

No feed ramp....accepts all ammo of that caliber regardless of shape

If you have a hard primer.....just pull the trigger again no need to rack the slide

Usually if a revolver fires one round it will fire the others no problem...usually not the case with a semi auto

If you do have an issue they are stupid easy to diagnose

Never have to buy 50 dollar magazines just 20 dollar speedloaders.

And just by design have better accuracy due to a fixed barrel

Brewing a pot of coffee for the typical "I've never had a problem with my kel tec but I had a taurus revolver once....."
>>
>>28597912
There are less moving parts on any given semi than a revolver

You can literally clear any failure on a semi in less than 2 seconds vs a failure on a revolver, you're dead.

Even with a speed loader they take way longer to reload, so even in the almost noon existent chance of getting in a fire fight, your also dead

The fixed barrel literally makes no difference, the bullet is out if the barrel before it ever even shifts

>a failure on a revolver, you're dead.
no, a failure on a revolver, you pull the trigger again and it fires.

There's a difference between failure of ammunition and failure of the mechanics of the firearm. If a revolver's timing goes out, you're fucked.
>>
>>28598224
>if a gun breaks, it probably won't work anymore
wow, fucking amazing. That's the case with literally every gun out there.
You can't compare the timing going out to a double feed or stove piping.
>>
>>28598224
Like when a slide fails?
>>
>>28598265
It takes literally seconds to fix a double feed or stovepipe. You're not fixing a revolver mechanical failure at the bench.
>>
>>28596205
You can 'play' Russian Roulette with revolvers.

That alone makes them superior
>>
As a semi auto guy, I can absolutely understand both sides. For regular use, semi auto is more reliable. For people who just want a gun for the wife that will go boom if someone breaks in, revolvers are much more reliable
>>
>>28598224
>comparing temporary malfunctions of the system to catastrophic failure

Good luck fixing an exploded frame, dipshit.
>>
>>28598105
>The fixed barrel literally makes no difference, the bullet is out if the barrel before it ever even shifts

So all these experts writing about barrel harmonics are full of shit?
>>
>>28598307
Exactly, revolver are significantly more prone to catastrophic failure. More of a hand grenade than a fucking Glock.

this makes no fucking sense. How is a semi auto more reliable "for regular use"?
>>
>>28598105
What a shit post
Yeah the gas buildup completely waits for the bullet to exit the barrel and then decides to move everything. Yeah that's how physics works.

Less than 2 seconds? Didn't know I was dealing with an operator. 2 seconds to realize the failure, drop the magazine and rack the slide all the while jiggling the gun to drop the spent case and putting in a new magazine. What a fucking hero! You should quit your day job of delivering pizzas and be a fucking navy seal.

There are more parts to fail on a semi auto you are blatantly full of shit

Yeah but you're not going to get a double feed or stovepipe at all on a revolver.

I'm not that guy, and I know revolvers have their share of problems, but in order for a revolver to go down, you're talking about a catastrophic failure of the internals, which is worst case scenario and a lot less likely to happen overall.

This thread is shit, your topic is subjective and pointless to argue. Everyone switched to semi-auto for a reason.
>>
>>28598413
It isn't hard, just in a stressful situation it's gonna take more than 2 seconds. You're not gonna have that problem on a revolver so it's a moot point. The only thing semi autos exceed revolvers in is capacity, plain and simple. Stop getting so fannyflustered about it.

Because they're less likely to be damaged by routine use, but there's a lot more you can fuck up by being untrained, using bad ammo, etc.

>>28598619
it takes time for you to realize you had a malfunction as well as additional time to take the steps needed to clear it. Most semi autos fail from misfeeds or FTE's, both a revolver cannot have. In the time in takes your brain to register there was a jam (quarter second?) i can fire another round with my revolver.

yes, semi autos usually have more moving parts. But that picture is fucking stupid, as half of the parts labeled don't move.

The revolver picture only has the actual firing mechanism labeled, while the semi-auto picture has literally every single piece of the gun labelled.
