The revolver in .357 Magnum is still used by military and law enforcement. A little known fact is the Navy SEALS other countries use the MR73 with .357 Magnum.
Glock 19 or it's little brother the G26. Max load (10 + 1) for civilians, easy to handle, totally reliable. No safety to forget under stress, low recoil. Once you become an experienced shooter you may well want something else, but the Glock is essentially a semi automatic revolver. Just aim and pull the trigger. And a hell of a lot faster to reload.
For the revolver guys, yep revolvers are nice, .357 is an awesome round, but doesn't it strike you that there is a reason why no law enforcement or military agency uses then anymore?
A few U.S. Law Enforcement Agencies use the revolver for entry shield use.
