I've giving this a lot of thought lately. If I could only have one revolver in a SHTF situation, what would I want? Well I started weighing my options of all the fine revolvers out there. My list was looking pretty typical Ruger GP100, S&W 686, Colt Pyhton, etc. I wanted something in 357 Magnum, 4"-6" barrel, DA and 6 rounds........(screeching tires) What? Wait! Why the heck would I only want 6 rounds when 8 is soooo much better. So the winner in my book, S&W M&P R8. Cant find a reason to not want it. 8 rounds of 357 Magnum, 5" barrel, relatively light at 36.3 oz., can easily mount a light/laser or optic. The cylinder is cut for moon clips. Win Win in my book. So whats your top pick for a SHTF revolver?
