A thing of beauty…

I’ve been comparison shopping handguns and have spoken with a number of knowledgeable buddies, ranging from Navy Special Warfare guys to a retired combat Marine to a life-long hunter with a sweet gun collection.

Automatics tend to jam more than wheel guns.  And since this will be mainly for target shooting and self defense, I won’t need a weapon that’s more suited to close quarter combat, like the Glock.
