Is the Revolver dead?

December 12, 2017

Is the Revolver dead?  Has this iconic piece of self-defense machinery gone the way of the DoDo Bird?   I don’t think so.  I think that it still has a place in today’s society as a valuable tool in the Self-Defense tool box.  Okay, what started this topic?  You guessed it, two men.
