Sane rants on an insane world. Read at your own risk. Don't blame me if your head explodes.
I used to work with a guy who commonly hiked and camped in bear country. He got a Charter Arms Bulldog to pack with him, similar size, 2" barrel.in .44 Mag.I shudder. I think I might rather face the bear.
I have never fired an automatic.I owned 4 revolvers only.Not a big 'gun' expert but I have watched enough "cop shows" to know that automatics jam up more than revolvers.....
Oh, I'd use it if I had to, but I wouldn't be shooting it for fun.
Well, I've only had two semi-autos jam, and I've gotten rid of both. And I cannot speak highly enough of the CZ-82 that I've got. I'm sure the 9mm version, the CZ-75, is just as good, but it's too big for my hands.If you want to try out a cheap, but reliable semi-auto that comes with a lifetime, transferable warranty, go with a Hi-Point. They're chunky and ugly, but they really *work.*
