Our combined influence can work to reshape American society. What do we want to accomplish and where do we want to start?"

“God made man, Sam Colt made men equal, but John Browning keeps men free.” Yes, this is a variant of the original quote, but yet, it does ring true!

There is an incredibly wide variety of six-shooters and pieces specifically designed for self preservation. A significant portion, if not nearly all of the models for virtually every firearm manufacturer that makes a firearm, are either specially designed for CCW or can be used for both CCW or OC. Everything from a .25 auto piece up to a .44 magnum six-shooter can be used for and or adapted to a self preservation role as a CCW firearm during a dangerous confrontation.

There is a firearm for every resident’s needs in size, bullet, configuration, trigger kit, and ability to carry hidden. Before making a final determination, it is suggested that you talk to several different CCW trainers, and take the opportunity to open fire every firearm you are considering in order to find the one that best fits your hand, your competence as a shooter, and your circumstance.

Typically, an automatic piece requires more instruction for all possible open fire scenarios than that of a six-shooter. This is a result of automatic pieces having a longer learning curve, usually due to its functionality of the movement of the slide, sight picture, proper hand placement, and the activation and deactivation of any safeties.

Many prefer the use of a six-shooter as a self preservation firearm due to its ease of use and high reliability, they virtually never have any bullets jamming, Also, due to their double action feature, there is significantly less risk of an accidental discharge.

There is a never-ending debate regarding the number of bullets that a self preservation firearm holds, and many six-shooter enthusiasts will refer to this quote; “It is not the number of rounds you fire, it is the accuracy of the first shot fired”
