In the modern day gun world the semi-auto pistols have a huge hold of the market for self-defense guns. But concealed carry revolvers can still hold their own for personal defense.
Revolvers can be a strong choice for concealed carry, as they’re reliable and easy to use.
Not everyone is a fan of a small semi-auto for concealed carry.
However, there is a large fan base of shooters that will only look to revolvers for concealed carry.
If you’re in this group and interested in carrying a revolver for CCW, read on of the pros and con and see our picks of good quality revolvers for personal defense.
Here’s a few reasons why revolvers are reliable, its the feeding and magazines.
-You say there is no magazines on a revolver thats right.
Magazines in semi-auto pistols are the main cause of malfunction.
-Feeding works pretty good in semi-auto but when you’re plugging in hollow point rounds it does have its issues on magazines.
Revolvers don’t have any of these issues.
Lets talk about another feature that doesn’t go wrong, is the triggering.
-The execution of it is simply triggering the hammer and cylinder.
Pull the trigger hammer goes back, cylinder turns, hammer goes forward and bang. Pull the trigger again same operation over again without a hitch.
-A revolver holds less rounds than a semi-auto pistol.
Most revolver wheel a 5 round vs a semi-auto holds 6+1 at a minimum.
-The width on most revolvers are a little thicker than a popular CCW Glock 33 Gen4.
So this brings us to the types of revolvers, which is two types: with a hammer and hammerless.
The hammerless is design for snag free ideal for CCW.
These hammerless are normally “double-action,” there isn’t any cocking for a lighter pull.
The following is our pick from the many revolvers out there in the market. These were picked with some power but the overall perspective is on concealed carry.

The Taurus Judge is the gun that can do it all, check it out as Matt from Demolition Ranch puts it to the test in as many ways as possible.
Most people have at least heard of the Taurus Judge and the Taurus Judge Public Defender, and you’ve probably heard the claim that it’s the gun that can do it all.
Today you’ll get to see that claim put to the test as Matt from Demolition Ranch puts just about as many different types of rounds as possible through these guns and gives them all sorts of tests.
What we really like is the versatility in a single weapon. You can shoot a target anywhere from long distance with the .45 or the .410 slug to up close with any of the buckshot or even birdshot options in the .410.
You can even load the gun simultaneously with different rounds if you are using it as a defensive weapon so that as you continue to pull the trigger your ammo changes to different distances.
