They make claims of revolvers getting superior reliability more than semi-autos.  Then there is the ammo interchangeability with some rifles and the capacity of some revolvers to accept quite a few distinctive cartridges of the similar caliber. There is also the reality that some revolver cartridges, like the .357, present a wider variety of powered charges permitting for higher flexibility as a hunting round.

But there is the other side of the fence: Detractors. Generally, this category appreciates revolvers but see modern day semi-auto pistols as getting far more positive aspects: Greater capacity, simpler reloading, higher reloading speeds.
