Revolver

You are the classic definition of a handheld firearm. Reliable, accurate and safe. Revolvers are generally more accurate than semi automatic pistols, in most part due to the fixed barrel and fewer moving parts. The most critical part of the mechanical precision in a revolver is the alignment of the cylinder and the locking mechanism. Every round must be precisely positioned and aligned to the barrel, otherwise the gas pressure will change causing irregular groupings. Reloading a revolver can be done incredible fast, if you have a speed loader and a steady hand (just look at Jerry Miculek). The mayor advantage of revolvers over automatics is that they do not need safeties or other levers, just point and pull. It is unlikely that the revolver will click. The cylinder makes the revolver somewhat more bulky then most service automatics. Pros; good accuracy. Easy to use. Few parts to fail. Cons; 6 shots or less per reload (speedloader, or fullmoon clips is recommended). Heavy trigger pull, especially in double action.
