Taurus 82 Homeland Security Medium Frame Revolver

.38 6-shot revolver

Well except maybe for this lady who put 5 rounds from a .38 into a home-invading scumbag and then had to BS him when she ran out of bullets.

The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
But the man eventually found the family.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

But hey she couldn’t have used say 15 rounds of .40 S&W from one of those evil semi-autos that use a soon-to-be-banned high capacity magazine, right. No Ma’am you have to count on luck and the fact that this clown wasn’t sure if you had a revolver or a semi-auto. If he had known, he could have figured out she had fired six rounds, not five, and decided he felt lucky. But we can trust Diane Feinstein to keep her safe, right?

My favorite comment on the article was:

I always get a great laugh when the argument about standard magazines comes up. “You don’t need 15 bullets for self defense!”. Which I counter with; “So why do we arm our Police with the largest magazines available?”
“Nobody needs an AR15 for home defense!” ‘Then why do we arm the worlds greatest military with their equivalent for defense of the entire USA and other countries around the world?’
“Nobody needs to carry a gun!” ‘Then why do Cops, bank guards, money transports, security and gate guards all carry guns?’
“Nobody needs a gun when 911 will bring the police to you!” ‘Calling 911 brings people armed with handguns and AR15’s….and plenty of chalk to outline your dead body.’
