Never top off. That being said it may be OK. But topping off seems like pushing things some. Last full round does not seem to load as easily as the rest. I always keep mags fully loaded minus one and one round in the chamber. Only exception is I don't keep one in the chamber with AR and shotgun at home. But if things keep going to hell, I may start. Other than that, pistols are always ready to go.
I gave up on revolvers after Summer of Love 2020. Just kept a dozen revolvers in storage for back up against dems outlawing semi-auto. Revolvers are pretty useless in this day and age. If I knew for sure semi-auto would never be outlawed, I'd dump the revolvers.
We have all seen the hordes of zombies with our own eyes. What other info do you need to know to retire your six shooters? (Or even worse...5 shooter snubs.)
when your gun runs out of ammo, you are out of ammo.
don't matter semi-automatic, or revolver, or a slingshot. (ya run outta rocks too, eh..????)
i got into revolvers from my days of watching old westerns. revolvers can jam up, for sure, i know this, had it happen to me, but it was the ammo, not the gun. (it was reloaded ammo that i bought, and the seating depth was not correct.)
anything can break at any time, that's a given. but revolvers are as dependable as all hell too. i cannot see myself selling away any of mine, any time too soon, in fact in time, i will be buying another, and another.
i cannot say that revolvers will hold their value, unless they are of the old build quality and number run out the factory.
but there will always be a market for revolvers.
everyone has a like and dislike on some types of firearms. i like all handguns, from all over the world, and all old style lever action rifles. i personally have no use, nor want for an AR as an example.
no gun is "useless in this day and age", when you need it, and you got it, and it just dam well shoots..........
