Me too

The only firearm I have ever owned, is the .22 rifle my dad gave me for my 12th birthday. I have been thinking a .357 magnum revolver with no external hammer.

1. The .357 magnum round is very powerful, but the revolver will also shoot the less expensive 38 Special bullets (for practice).

2. Revolvers virtually never jam.

3. No hammer to snag on a pocket or whatever.

4. No safety to fumble with.

5. Does not have to be cocked before firing. (Some semi-autos must be racked before the first shot.)

It makes sense to me. If (shudder) a guy ever actually needs to use the gun, the heart will be racing and tunnel-vision will have set in. Best not to need to disengage the safety or cock the gun.
