I had a Ruger SP101 in 9mm that shot like a dream. I loved that gun, but a friend loved it more. So he ended up with it.

Had a Taurus 905 that had brutal recoil, I couldn't manage more than 2 cylinders without developing a flinch. The rear of the trigger guard just beat me silly. Wanted to find a way to make it work but traded it away.

I was trying to buy the 9mm SP101 back, when I got a chance to shoot/buy a Glock 43. He didn't want to sell the SP and I might be better off with the 43.

I'm a revolver guy. My EDC is a S&W 642. I shoot a Smith Model 64 in ICORE and other matches.

In my LE Career I carried a Model 28, my all time favorite. I shoot it (since my dept. gave it to me when I retired) and sometimes its brother, a 6.5 inch Model 27, in the revolver category in Bowling pin matches.

But it LE, cant beat the Model 28 in my opinion.

I would buy a reasonably priced 4" poly framed gun like an LCR in a second. It would go on fishing trips where Rattlesnakes are thick, and black bears, big cats and human D-bags are uncommon but not unheard of. A 4" Ruger "LR9" (the as yet uninvented LCR-inspired 6 shooter) would be even more appealing.

9mm CCI birdshot throws a much denser charge of shot than the .38 (due to #12 vs #9 shot), and the 9mm is wholly adequate and less abusive than the .357 in such light guns.

I still shoot a SO 101 3" using Federal 9mm rimmed brass or make my own out of 38 cases resized with 9mm dies. Also use the moon clips with regular 9mm rounds. Seldom carry it but, gets to the range a few times a year.

I've got the Taurus 905, and the Charter Arms 6 shot Pitbull. Love them both.

I have a 9MM cylinder for my Ruger Old Model Blackhawk. Shoots better with lead bullets.

Been carrying/shooting my Pinnacle custom 9mm S&W 360J for 8+ years now. Had Mark fit a titanium .38spl cylinder to it a little over a year ago making it a 9mm/.38spl convertible, all I have to do is swap cyls.

You have FIVE 547's!


Are you also the kd who took his kickball home so we couldn't play?! That is a serious % of total commercial production, isn't it?

Thanks for sharing your photos.
I might be interested in a 9mm revolver IF the frame and cylinder were sized according to the size of the round. Oh, and a three inch barrel please.
