I'm a newbie, and a lady newbie from Texas at that. I've recently acquired a revolver to get the kids used to shooting cuz they said they were intimidated by semi-autos. I've been using this forum to acquaint myself with basic revolver knowledge. I've got years of familiarity with the M16 and a Glock 17, so you know my past jobs. However, this is only the second revolver I've ever shot and first owned. I shot a Taurus 38 special 4" barrel for class in Arizona years ago, and it was such a joy to shoot. I special ordered an SP101 shortly thereafter, but then got sent overseas so I canceled the order. Ever since then it's only been semi autos in my small hands. So you guys have been crucial to my education and I thank y'all. Well you and Paul Harrell, lol.
