A series of conversations and events has left me thinking a lot about snubby revolvers as primary carry guns, lately. If you subscribed to the “conventional wisdom” of the gun culture, the lowly snubby wouldn’t be enough for daily carry. Its low capacity, slow reloading characteristics, and perceived lack of power make it an unsuitable choice. Plus, everyone knows that snubbies are “phone booth guns,” and useless beyond arms length, eh? Continue reading “Is The Snubby “Enough Gun?””
Today, as the nation pauses for Memorial Day, the staff at RevolverGuy would like to recognize the men and women who gave “the last full measure of devotion” in the service of their country, and express our respect and gratitude.

I was late to the LCR party. As I mentioned in my previous article, the gun’s radical looks were a turnoff to my conservative tastes, and I didn’t get excited about it until I started getting some trigger time on them. Then, the performance caught my immediate attention, and I realized I’d been missing out on a helluva gun. Continue reading “Ruger 9mm LCR Field Report”

I recently had the opportunity to attend a CCW refresher class. This class is mandated by my Sheriff for all permit holders, as a prerequisite to renewing a permit. It was really interesting to get a refresher on what the “average CCW applicant” looked like. I’ve spent so much time around dedicated, highly trained, and well practiced shooters that I’ve become accustomed to people with a high level of proficiency and knowledge. Seeing “John Q. Public” up close was a good reminder that it’s not always this way. Continue reading “The Average Gun Owner”
As dedicated revolver enthusiasts, your RevolverGuy team occupies a unique position in the industry. There are very few individuals and groups out there with such a concentrated focus on revolvers, and that’s afforded us some unique opportunities to work with manufacturers on product improvements and new ideas. One recent project that we were proud to play a small role in was the development of the new FLETC 2.0 holster from DeSantis. Continue reading “The DeSantis FLETC 2.0”
Those of you who have read my review of the Kimber K6s are aware that I gave the gun high marks with just a few exceptions. One of those gripes was that the grips didn’t give enough clearance for a speedloader. Continue reading “DIY Revolver Grip Modifications”
In a surprising announcement today, U.S. Navy officials have confirmed the elite U.S. Navy SEALs will transition to a revolver as their primary handgun. Continue reading “Navy SEALs To Adopt New Revolver”
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines serendipity as “the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for.” Serendipity occurs when you unexpectedly bump into a long-lost friend, or find a $20 bill under the sofa cushion when you’re fishing for the nickel that just fell between the cracks.
Serendipity also occurs at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trades (SHOT) Show, when you blindly stumble into a quiet, non-descript display booth, and discover the world’s most highly-engineered and precisely-manufactured wheelgun—The Janz Revolver.
