Revolvers For First Time Shooters


Last week we listed some great starter semi-automatic pistols for first time shooters. But what about revolvers? 

Yes the basic design is almost 200 years old and yes they don't have the capacity of a semi-auto's magazine, but there's a reason revolvers are still around. Powerful, easy to handle, and a reliably simple design, revolvers can be excellent choices for self defense and competition shooting.

We walked around the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to ask for recommendations on the best revolver for new shooters and got some great answers. So for the new shooter who has been eyeing revolvers, we hope this sets you in the right direction.
