I think you should get a stainless vaquero with ivory ( imitation) grips. Then if you want later on you can get you an auto

I think you need to put an end to your confusion and get a semi-auto. You state you have used a revolver and feel very comfortable with it and have never owned (shot?) a semi.

If you do not get the semi, you will regret it and eventually get one.

If you get the semi, you will get it out of your system and when you do, realize the revolver would have been the better decision; at which time you will either keep the semi and buy a revolver or trade up to a revolver.

Put an end to your self inflicted torture. Buy the semi......

I'm a revolver guy. To me they are the epitome of a shooting machine. They are known for their dependability and ruggedness. I own four and am always looking to expand my collection.

I agree, James. It is apples and oranges. The problem is that I like apples... And I like oranges. So, my advice is to get your hands on as many of the ones that you are interested in and go to the range shoot all that you can. Then after trying them all, make an educated decision and by one of each. Get you a revolver and a semi-auto. I'm a 1911 nut I suppose, as I own several in different configurations and callibers. That said, I also own several revolvers in different configurations and callibers. I enjoy them all from the .22lr on up to the .44mag and the .45colts. I love them all. Enjoy the search and the process, it is a great part of the fun. It take a lot to feed this hobby. Good luck.

A lot of strong points from both sides of the debate. The responses are unique and personal to individual tastes and preferences. What's good for me might not work for you. After looking back over this thread I would recommend for you to go out and rent each gun you might be interested in an shoot it to see if it fits your and your personality.

As many others have said - get your hands on as many possibilities as you can to determine what works best for you. However, hold and fire a CZ P09 if possible.

I'm messed up, I can't make up my mind on which "one" to use. I tend to buy all of them I can and then struggle which one I need to wear everyday. Currently I have around a dozen to choose from and 6 are Auto's and 6 are Revolvers.

So there you go...just start buying them and join the rest of us who can't be satisfied with just one.
