Revolvers and semi-automatic handguns are vastly different types of firearms, although they overlap in many capacities. Both can be used for target shooting or personal defense, but you need to know a few things first. Jeff Kersten explains what a new shooter should know before buying either type of these firearms. It is important to know whether a revolver or semi-automatic handgun will best suit the shooter’s purposes. While this video is aimed at those new to firearms, experienced shooters may also learn something from this in-depth discussion.
