Default Which is typically more accurate out of the box a revolver or semi-automatic pistol ?

Specialized target autoloaders, especially .22's, are among the most accurate of all handguns, and probably slightly more accurate than .22 target revolvers, for reasons I don't have space to go into here. Suffice to say that the intrinsic accuracy of both types of target gun is excellent. Comparing service guns, and centerfire handguns in general, I have found revolvers to consistently be more accurate out of the box. For example, my 4" .38 Colt Diamondback will shoot tighter group than my 9mm Glock 19, or a .45 Long Colt SAA will usually shoot tighter groups than a .45 ACP Colt 1911A1 autoloader. This includes concealed carry guns. For instance, a 2" snub-nosed revolver will usually out shoot an equivalent size .380 or 9x19 autoloader.
