Just a curiosity. Seems like they'd be as reliable as a pump or bolt, but with more semi-auto functionality to them. It's 2010, and I can still go to the store and buy a revolver handgun, but not a rifle? I bought my son a pump-action rifle (he's a lefty) recently. A 7600 .243WIN with the wood furniture. I almost got a lever-action, since he likes Old West kinda stuff, but settled on the 7600 because I have personal experience with a 7615 and a 870 shotgun, and like them both. In searching for a gun for him, I was thinking "a revolver would be sooo cool, but can you even get one?" anyway, so stupid question of the day, I guess.
