Firearms are generally not inexpensive. They are an investment in personal security, any number of shooting sports, and your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Depending on the firearm, they can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. If well taken care of, they hold their value and last a lifetime or more, as evident from specimens that may have been around during World War I and still function flawlessly today.
A revolver is defined as a repeating handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers for ammunition and at a barrel for firing. The rounds may be fired by cocking a hammer manually for each shot or by pulling the trigger rearward repetitively to advance the revolving cylinder. These mechanics are known as single-action or double-action. Single-action revolvers can only be fired by cocking the hammer and then releasing it with the trigger. Single/double action revolvers still have an exposed hammer that can be cocked, facilitating either style of shooting, while others enclose the mechanism entirely in the body of the firearm, making them double-action only. It comes down to a matter of preference mostly, but having the single-action capability is typically favored by people who hunt or shoot competitively, as it take far less effort to drop the hammer with the trigger than having to pull the trigger through both phases of the action.

A concealed carry permit holder is a law-abiding individual who can lawfully carry a firearm with them, observing all rules and regulations governing the privilege, and one who has completed all required qualification courses to become a permit holder. Among the most prolific questions most permit holders have is “what is the best handgun for concealed carry?” There is no single answer to this query, but instead a series of additional questions that must be asked to determine what would be the best fit.
A gun without ammunition is just an item for display. Hunters, sport shooters and citizens who stand by our right to bear arms all rely on having a supply of high quality ammunition to keep their firearms viable. Proficiency is gained at the range, and going to the range requires ammunition. Will one box of ammo get you to a level of expertise that is required to be considered a ‘good shot’? Absolutely not.
