S&W model 29. Controllable with one hand, but just barely (and you better have a strong grip).

Revolvers have their place, just not in modern military units. A long time ago (mid-80's), I used to play paintball at Flagraiders. The main "gun" was a 40-rd pump-action marker. I carried a secondary - a 6-rd crossman paint marker revolver in 0.50 cal running CO2 caplets. I once played an entire day with just that pistol (my marker blew an o-ring) - and it was HOOT! Ammo reloading and trying to perform a plate swap while under fire was stressful, but fun.

I wouldn't try running a revolver these days - we're not using pumps or caplets in the field anymore. It might make for a cute backup, but then a derringer would be just a cute and just as useful.
