A Revolver at the IDPA S&W Indoor National.

S&W Team Member Josh Lentz shooting a Model 686. Photo by Yamil Sued. h/t to Bill Baldwin.

I wish i knew who was the photog and all the info on the shooter & stage because that is a great pic.

Do notice the flame coming out of the cylinder gap. That is a great visual indicator to make sure you do not use a semi auto grip on a revolver unless you want digits to get seriously hurt.

Revolvers are slowly but surely making a comeback. They are cool to shoot and in a sea of plastic wonders, old school steel stands out. And worse: they work.

Or as they say: Six for Sure.

  1. I know I`m get`n old but I do Love the S&W double action trigger(after alittle polishing). How too few young people will ever shoot one of the double action Colt Revolers 🙁

  2. Grant Cunningham (via his blog and book) convinced me to take the revolver plunge, and I’ve been super happy with mine. It’s always tempting to quote Obi-wan: an elegant weapon, for a more civilized age…

    1. Went to the family shooting range after buying my first revolver for a fun weekend with friends and family. Every single gun that wasn’t a revolver jammed at least once.

      Had to extract a .22 from the casing that got bent in half with pliers.

          1. Glad to help, I just cropped the the face, ran it through the DHS’s facial recognition database, got the name, sent the pic to a buddy at ATF to contact S&W to find out what event it was, emailed that info to a buddy at the FBI to track down the photographer, called the ATF agent to see if S&W had a .pdf of the course. They wouldn’t give it up, so I searched youtube.
            I’m expensive, but If you’re at the 2A conference in Houston next year, I’ll let you buy me a cup of coffee.

    1. And instructor told me that once you learn to shoot revolver somewhat decently, your trigger control in an auto will improve dramatically…. and he was right.

  3. My favorite gun is probably my S&W 686P. Seven round cylinder, so it doesn’t matter whether I fired six shots or only five.

    I want a Rossi Circuit Judge, though.
