    cant carry rifle anymore and need gun for big nasty wolves... would a 22lr be better in a revolver or semi auto

    I have had both. A Ruger single six with both cylinders is an ideal trapping pistol. Then you can go up to .22 mag if you feel it necessary.

    I like the idea of a semi auto just pop out clip at truck (cant have loaded in truck) and not chamber a bullet intil needed... taking 6 bullets out each time? or do you pop out cylinders

    I can have a loaded gun in the vehicle so I don’t worry about that. Yes a single six would be a pain to load and unload every time you had to get in the vehicle. I never tried popping out a loaded cylinder.

    I use a Rock Island Armory 1911 in .22 mag now. It does a good job now but they aren’t kidding when they say it takes 500 rounds break in for it to cycle properly. I almost sold it twice I was so mad. It doubles as my side arm for lion hunting that’s why I switched.

    Problem I ran into with semi auto's is: I typically just throw my trap gun in my trap bag, so it gets muddy, wet, etc. In freezing Temps, the slide freezes, which enables a new round to be chambered. Yes, a revolver takes a little more time to load, but how many shots do you typically fire on a line check? And.. it's cheap, so getting scuffed-up isn't a concern. Just my opinion and experience.
