Boy am I miffed. This idiot's diary is proof positive that not all people should be allowed to access the internet. You have to be smarter than the machine before you can use the machine, my mother always said.

While composing this practical Spanish lession, it should be obvious that I meant to press Preview instead of Submit and my tiny mind proved too big an obstacle to overcome resulting in miserable failure.

Any kindly editor who, in his drunken stupor, happens to stumble across this unfinished diary, please have the goodness to delete it so that I may complete it and resubmit.

Or don't.

A revolver is safer than an automatic.

This isn't always true. You need to be sure, before putting that revolver in the small of your back, that it is not of an 'old' design.

Newer revolvers have a transfer bar between the hammer and the firing pin. The hammer itself will not contact that firing pin, its energy it carried to it via the transfer bar that is only in position when the trigger is pulled back. With the old design it was possible to snag the hammer spur, partially draw the hammer as the gun was holstered, then release it and inadvertently fire the weapon. The transfer bar prevents this, requiring both a drawn hammer AND a fully retracted trigger.

Newer autoloading pistols have various changes to improve safety as well. From the partial-cock Glock design to the decocker 1911 models, autoloader safety has improved considerably.

As long as you purchase a weapon with recent safety improvements your choice of type should really come down to the one you are most comfortable firing, and meets your various needs (size, weight, stopping ability, capacity, etc.)
