Be certain you are not milking the trigger right or left and have an experienced shooter fire the revolver as well. The problem may be shooter related.

The Kel-Tec Sub 2000 dispenses with all of the problems of the semi-automatic SMG, and it is a neat trick compared to the best of the competing 9mm carbines. The SUB 2000 isn’t heavy, it has a usable trigger, and it is a feathery-light firearm that handles quickly. While all that is good and well, read the full story to learn why the author recommends it for home defense.

Taurus International’s Millennium G2 is an outstanding handgun. An attractive price tag and spotless performance have fueled this compact 9mm pistol’s popularity. The Millennium G2 is at least comparable to similar-size handguns from the major makers, and in some cases the it outclasses the others.
Among the most interesting of the introductions at the 2018 SHOT Show was the Taurus 856 revolver. The revolver illustrated, the 857, is even newer and at present a bit difficult to obtain. In this day of 8-shot N-frame revolvers and 7-shot GP 100-sized handguns, the Taurus 857 is big news in a real way. Those carrying the snubnose .38 revolver now have a truly compact design that carries six rather than five cartridges.
Revolvers remain an important part of the handgun market. The niche for revolvers is stronger than ever, with the introduction of new revolvers and accessories. Among the most interesting accessories are revolver speedloaders. Many regard them as necessary for personal defense, as much so as keeping a spare magazine for the self-loading handgun.
The Pachmayr Guardian grip is among the most interesting yet and certainly the most innovative. The design is simple enough.

A rough analogy is the difference between the flush fit and extended grip offered with compact self-loading handguns.
Lawmen such as Lone Wolf Gonzullas, Tom Threepersons, and Frank Hamer carried the SAA long into the previous century. Today, we have first quality revolvers (and plenty of cheap competitors) that will serve well.
