A semi with the same type of trigger as a revolver is no more likely to have a ND from a mistake. The problem with light switch triggers is the fact they are light switch triggers. Humans have a strange condition of screwing up, unless a person is perfect. Training will help, but there is a big difference from a 10 pound long trigger pull, and the pull of a Glock.

I have strict rules for myself when around guns, I am anal about it. Unless I am training or servicing a gun my hands stay off the gun. I do train almost everyday, but I still prefer to carry revolvers. When I am in the rare mood I might carry a semi. If I am going to a bad neighborhood, and that is not often, I will carry a my Star Super. The gun only cost me $130 20 years ago. It would be less painful then having a beloved revolver confiscated by police after a shooting.

While my EDC has a been a Glock 36 in .45 acp for the past 4 years, I still have a 2.25" Ruger SP101 .357 magnum in the rotation...and while it's been regulated as an 'outdoor' gun, it does cruise around with me in a chest-holster when I ride bike!

I've been chased (seriously) 3 times and bitten once (1x) and that'll never happen again! Every dog that has 'chased' me (with the intent to attack / bite / cause harm)...none ever even barked...it was just their toe nails clicking on the asphalt that gave away their attack! Other dogs, that come out to just bark or race for fun...do just that...and make some noise in the process! Against larger dogs (and other 'threats') a good 158 grain JHP +P is sufficient to stop just about anything that could cause physical damage if an incident were to occur!

I grew up with revolvers and the SP101 is still just plain comfortable in my grip...so when I ride, a 'natural' feel is the way to go!

I carry my 4 5/8ths inch Blackhawk 45 LC with 300 grain gas checked bullets over 15.5 grs. of 2400. Seems a pretty good combo for what I might encounter around these parts, you know, Zombies and Globalists.... The subject of Grizzly bear usually comes up when people mention large caliber handgun carry, so if I were in bear country, I believe I'd be totin' my Marlin 45-70.

I only own and only carry revolvers. But to overcome the capacity disadvantage, I carry multiple revolvers. But let's be clear -- I enjoy carrying multiple revolvers.

Since I spend most of my time sitting (in a car, or at a desk) I can get by with twin ankle holsters, which I fill with matching SP101s. I add to that either a belly band or DeepConceal shoulder rig for another SP101. And for dessert, I have a NAA Pug in my pocket.

Again, I enjoy carrying my revolver collection -- analogous to wearing one's favorite jewelry. So it is a hobbiest thing as much as it is a tactical thing. Beyond my personal preferences, I can objectively say that it is perfectly easy to carry three or four beefy snubnoses. SP101s on your (or my, anyway) ankles are a literal snap (in Galco ankle gloves).

Even thought I have a officer's sized 1911 in 9mm. My main carry gun that I carry 100% of the time is my Ruger LCRX .38 Special. It is a very light weight gun, I just prefer the reliability and simplicity of a revolver. The Ruger LCRX to me is the best of both in SA/DA usage. I wished that Ruger could develop a LCRX type of action in a Ruger SP101!!!

I carry what I feel like... Sometimes it's a revolver, other times it's a bottom feeder. I'm an equal opportunity carrier.

I carry a mix of both depending on day. My fns40 or my sw 686+ is usually rotated through the week.

Never. They don't conceal with my mode of dress.

I guess carrying any gun is a challenge when wearing a dress. Might be easier to carry in a purse.

Airweight J-frame. Specifically an M&P 340 in a Blackhawk iwb holster. Light and powerful, and small enough to conceal easily - just about any pocket will do or very sleek behind the label on my Levi's. Full-house magnum's down to very light .38's. And, I've been a 1911 guy for most of my life . . .
