    Default 5 shot revolver?

    im doin a moot court case for law school and in the facts given . a guy shoots his gun, its a 38 revlover and i was wondering if anyone knew if there is a 5 shot revlover? isnt the standard 6 shots?

    or i can restate the question as.. how many chambers do revolvers have?

    5 shots revolvers is very common.. but 6 shots is much more availablee than 5 shots...
    actually there were 7 shots old revolvers just like nagant between 1900-1950 era.. but today 7 shots are not exist ...or l dont know they are exist or not....

    There is the Lemat 9 shot/18g combination revolver of course. I just mention it because of it's historical value as an unusual design.

    In summary: Pretty much any number, at least there's room for a wide variety. 6 shot being the most common, but there are a lot of 5 shot "compacts" around and 7 shot example aren't unknown. So just by spotting a revovler at a distance you couldn't definatively say how many rounds it may hold unless you are close enough to ID the exact model.

    Big guns with big cartridges (Smith and Wesson .500SW) and small guns designed for concealed carry/backup usually have fewer shots. Big guns because you'd end up with an akward rifle, and small ones so you don't flag yourself or have an overly bulky gun.
