Bloody, close-in fighting, where rounds fired might take out your own comrades.

My Grandfather had one of these chambered in the 221 Fireball. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_XP-100

That may have been the loudest pistol I've ever heard. I always wondered why they didn't offer it in left hand action. Seems to me it would be a natural for a right hand shooter to open the bolt with his left hand.

I think you misunderstood the post, I was not saying that revolvers had bolt actions. Revolvers have been replaced long ago with the semi auto side arm in the military.
