    No need to make sure a round is chambered. No safety to ensure is in the correct position. No magazine that may get accidently ejected. In a high stress, life or death situation simple is definitely better and you cant get much easier than point, pull the trigger and repeat if needed.

    Yer dang right they're good defensive weapons. I'm carryin' two right now. My 5" Heavy Duty on my right hip and my M340PD in my left pants pocket.
    I ain't skeered of anybody.

    Like I always say, bullet placement.
    Just make sure to practice double action point shooting.

    I suspect this store clerk would say - YES !

    The BG shot five times at about 5 feet and completely missed .

    The clerk , with a revolver , didn't miss ............

    WATCH: Clerk shoots, kills armed robber

    Now you wouldn't catch me around Stone Mountain , not the worst part of town ,
    but def not the best . I did see some fine July 4 fireworks there one year .
    Luckily it was only bursting in the air fireworks .

    RE-VOL-VERRRR! Load it. Point It Pull the trigger Repeat. 6 times ..

    When upon the firing line
    and the Cylinder begins to roll
    Keep your sights aligned upon the target
    and the trigger under control.

    And when the shot doth break the gun.
    there is one more thing to do
    Realign your sights upon the target
    and always follow through ..

    Exactly, in pin shooting, use a revolver exclusively. When asked why, I would respond, I make each shot count while you are spraying 15 or more rounds to do the same thing hopefully. Practice practice practice.
