I have a Taurus 905 in stainless, not sure if it is the best but you have a pretty short list. They are no longer made, but you can find them on GB for around $300-$400. They use moon clips to help extract the spent casings.

Don't think I've ever seen a 9mm revolver.

Here's a good list of 9mm semi auto's for CCW though....

Yeah, real short list. Taurus is about it as far as I know. Unless Charter has come out with one. But go up one mm wider and you're in S&W 610 country!! It's a whole new world.

The moon clips make reloading a little slower than other methods.

My Taurus 905







Here is another option if it is ever produced - Charter Arms Rimless Revolver
It was supposed to be released in 2009, they are now talking this year or early next year.

Ruger made an SP101 and a Speed Six in 9mm, at one time. S&W made a 940, in 9mm, that is no longer in production. These were all snub nose revolvers. There are some used ones out there, but they are not cheap and they are not the easiest revolvers in the world to find. My first choice would be the Ruger SP101....... IF I could find one. Best of luck to you in your search.

There are already better calibers for a revolver than a 9mm. Personally, I prefer a semi auto, or something much more powerful & a higher rnd count for a SHTF. It's much faster and easier to change out a mag instead of reloading a wheel gun.

This is why.

If you want a revolver, get a .38 Special or .357 Magnum (also shoots .38 Specials). If you want 9mm, get a semi-auto.

Ruger made a Blackhawk in 357mag/9MM years ago. I just sold one to a dealer here.
They came with two cylinders.

There is a huge difference between guns that COULD be made.....and guns that SHOULD be made. A 9mm revolver, like any rimless cartridge in a revolver, is a bad solution in search of a problem.

So...for the sake of argument, lets pretend you have a 9mm revolver in SHTF. NOW you have to have moon clips, and load them, so you can load your revolver. At least a semi auto without a magazine is a single shot....a 9mm revolver without a moon clip is a hammer.

Yup .. He made it apparent that he has little knowledge of guns. If you talk like you know (and really don't) you might act out the same way, and why too many make stupid mistakes in real life causing injury.

There are reasons that makers don't make them. This is such silly logic (I don't mean to be mean .. but think about it) Why would I bother with moon clips when a FASSST/SIMPLE mag change with double the rnd count in a semi auto works for most .. and why semi autos are far more widely used in law enforcement and with civilians?
