Revolvers
The revolver allows the user to fire multiple rounds without reloading. Each time the user cocks the hammer, the cylinder revolves to align the next chamber and round with the hammer and barrel, which gives this type of firearm its name. In a single-action revolver, the user must pull the hammer back until it locks into position then pull the trigger in order to fire. In a double-action revolver, pulling the trigger moves the hammer back, then releases it automatically. The double action revolver (with exposed hammer) can be operated as a single action revolver making it the best of both worlds.

Although the double action revolver is superior to the single action, neither one would be considered a modern day firearm. The single action revolver was first introduced over 400 hundred years ago. It's successor the double action revolver was introduced in 1877 by Colt Manufacturing Company. In the last 30 years almost every military and police organization has replaced their revolvers with modern semi-automatic pistols which have over twice the ammunition capacity of revolvers.

So the question is: "Why
would anyone want to own a revolver and why do so many people still purchase them?" The revolver is a mechanical work of art but simple in operation. It's user needs very little knowledge to operate a double action revolver. One pull of the trigger and the gun fires. Unlike semi-automatic pistols, if a revolver has a malfunction the user need only pull the trigger again and in most cases the gun will fire. Revolvers are easy to operate and extremely reliable. That's why these old fashioned firearms are still popular today.
