It's true, we see semiautomatics more than any other firearm these days, but if you are someone who values reliability, honors tradition, and takes a no-nonsense approach to handguns then a revolver is one the for you.
Also, if you are looking for a first-time handgun, there are many people who believe they should be everyone's first firearm. Maybe it's the simple design or the sense of responsibility you get when carrying this type of firearm.
With every bullet being hand-loaded and a finite number of rounds in the chamber there is a discipline instilled. You will always be aware of the state of this weapon and when you pull the trigger you'll be 100% confident in the result.
