Revolvers are simple tools, but they are not unfailing.  They can malfunctions just like any other firearm.  If beakdoktor thinks revolvers can't malfunction, he is mistaken.  I've had both Ruger and S&W revolvers malfunction. 

I've shot rifles, shot guns and handguns.

I've always liked handguns, but a lot of people are saying that a shotgun is better for home protection.

I guess Ill cross that bridge when I purchase a firearm.

best to have several different guns hidden through out the house...... you never know where you're going to be when someone comes through the door.

also its of benefit to have diffefent types of knives,  pepper sprays and/or batons stashed around as well. they are cheap and easy to obtain and could give you an added advantage.

revolvers dont malfunction....ever.  but have limited firing capacity.

semi autos offer greater firing capacity and are easier to reload but can malfunction , if gun is jerked during the firing cycle stove pipes double feed, coil springs break etc... and those kinds of things happen under stress: being in a shootout is much different than shooting at the range...
shltguns are also a good option. ability to shoot and kill through drywall, doors. powerfull advantage and relatively inexpensive option for a long gun of course gun nuts love their AR's.....

you also have to consider your backstop especially if you have children in the home. limited penetration expanding rounds are available but you shouldnt pull the triger unless you know exactly what your shooting at anyway so why use the most lethal round. limited penetration rounds are questionable. dont have to worry as muc about your backstop but it could allow the target to survive. if you know what you're shooting at and justified in doing so then you want to shoot kill and end it quickly.

best advice is to reinforce your doors and windows use larger screws in the frames and hinges, thicker glass etc.own a large dog too... it wont stop someone but it will slow them down long enough to muster and arm your family.

yep thats exactly what hes saying and thats why hes wrong. if hes had not one but two revolvers malfunction then he doesnt know what hes doing. he either doesnt know how to take care of it, shoot it pr load it. of course nothing is infallible but it is highly unusual for revolvers to malfunction. if yors malfunction repeatedly, lord only knows how the fuck youre handling them.......so SF please take your advice from the guy whose guns always malfunction. you two make a good team.



I thought you said revolvers don't malfunction.  Ever.  Now, you say they do?  Well, which is it? 

Also, where did I say my weapons malfunction repeatedly, or always?  Why are you making shit up?   Huh

I don't really think there is one answer. For example. I have trained on a number of weapons. For my house, I have a Beretta 9000 affixed behind my night stand. I have a M&P 40 under the coffee table. I have zero expectation of using them for home defense as the stats just don't make it very probable but in the event it happens, I am confident with either I can likely come out on top. My wife, not so hot on shooting skills. She has a single shot 12 gauge with buckshot under her side of the bed. if she hits fine.. if she misses fine, that kind of sound.. the average burglar will be crapping their pants to get out of the house.

Get whatever makes you happy, you can afford, and you can take to a range and practice with.  A pistol or revolver is a great way to start.

Yeah, it seems like its really coming down to personal comfort, as I will probably get 100 different answers. Opinions on guns are like opinions on weightlifting: everyone has an opinion on how to get 18" guns (that was a good pun).  Cheesy Cheesy  Grin Grin

You're exactly right.  Everyone will have a different opinion.  Get something you're comfortable with, can afford, and can practice with.  Springfield, Glock, and M&P all make great firearms.

I bought a 22 cal western style revolver when I was in my early 20's. Cheap gun, might have bought it from Walmart. Thing was more unreliable than a $400 1990 Hyundai. I've fired 1000's of rounds through my berretta Centurion and never had a jam. I've also had to return a 92FS Beretta because it jammed almost every time.

My point is.. I have no point  Smiley

My opinion of the Raging Judge?  It should be #10 on that list.  Taurus is notorious for building unreliable firearms.

IMO that Taurus raging judge is a poor option. Taurus is not terrible but not a great reputation.

Also the 454 casull is a huge load more suited for bears. And it also takes the 410 shotgun shell which is underpowered for home defense.
