As far as comments made by revolver shooters, I find that there are more comments about why only 10 rounds in a magazine is allowed than revolver comments about stages being revolver friendly.
I compete with a Ruger Alaskan, using .45 Colt Ammunition, and have to shoot it in ESR because it weighs too much for SSR. I choose the challenge that it presents, as opposed to using the S&W 625 that I also own. It is stock with no modifications because I choose to use it that way. Understand that this revolver is one of the handguns that I use for self defense along with competition, and have an auto for backup to it.
I have finished higher than several auto shooters in overall results at a number of matches, so the idea that a revolver cannot be competitive is a fallacy in my opinion. It is hard to be competitive against an auto with a revolver, but I place the goal of finishing ahead of as many autos as I can every match. In IDPA it is all about the overall time with penalties, and I never place a limitation on how I can do.
