I have now had three 7 shot revolvers and I currently have NO 7 shot revolvers. I just dont know what it is about them. I know that most everything should be the same as it is on a 6 shot but .. 6 shot revolvers just feel and shot better for me. Is it the timing, is it that is what I learned to shot .. I dont know but ... am I the only weirdo that prefers the 6 shot for shooting and damned be the extra round?
