Default Why do I like DA revolvers but hate DAO pistols?

I dont get it, I shoot a DAO or DAK Semi, and i hate it, but i love revolvers?

I find that the da trigger on revolvers are much better than semi's. More clean.

I don't understand why anyone would want a DAO semiautomatic.

People who care more about the liklihood of being sued than defending their family?

Police departments sometimes mandate DAO firearms.

Revolvers aren't better than autoloaders. The advantage of reliability is a thing of the past because of how reliable autos are nowadays. The only actual advantage is power but even then that power isn't necessary.

Revolvers are fun to shoot, mechanically simple for inexperienced shooters, have more powerful chamberings for hunting and are more accurate for bullseye competition, did i also mention fun to shoot? An auto may be a better self defense gun but revolvers are still here and awesome. Also, as a pocket gun, ive seen too many micro autos fail. A pocket revovler may be better.

I dont see why so many people see a revovler as outdated, I say they are still awesome.
