Default 9mm Revolver

I am trying to stick to 9mm hand guns in my collection for a number of reasons and my wife was asking about a revolver for her first gun. A quick google search only found a couple models. Why is 9mm a uncommon revolver caliber and does anyone have a 9mm revolver they would suggest?

I do not have a 9mm revolver but I have experience with both charter arms and Taurus and they both have a model that fires 9mm and both have been reliable enough for me to recommend looking into there models.

Most revolvers utilize a rimmed cartridge. 9mm does not have the extra diameter rim found on a 38 spl for example.

Ruger has started offering some novel combos with their Blackhawk revolvers, 45 LC cylinder + a 45 ACP cylinder, 357 cylinder + 9 mm cylinder.

Most 9mm revolvers must use a moon or half-moon clip to eject. This has both good and bad points(but mostly bad). That is why few are made.

In addition to ejection problems, when you add in gas loss at cylinder gap, 9mm is in the .38 Special power range.

I was looking at the Taurus 905 model; but, nothing in stock. My next model is the Charter Arms has 9mm Pitbull; however, same at the Taurus.

They're both 2" snub-nose. Local dealer has put in a request; but, his go to distributor was very gloomy on availability of Charter Arms model.

The request is in.

.38 Special performance with near .357 Magnum pressures, oh baby. What's not to love?

Charter Arms used to be a decent gun for the money, I have a 25 yo Undercover. It does the job, but it's nothing special. I've not heard much, good or bad regarding their more recent efforts. I'd probably buy a Charter before a Taurus. (Yeah, I have one of them too.)
IMHO, a 2" revolver is a decent carry gun in some instances. I'm not entirely sure it would a great "first gun." It takes a fair bit of skill to shoot a snubbie well. Even a 9mm snubbie is going to be less than enjoyable for more than a few rounds for a new shooter. IMHO, a medium frame .357 revolver using .38s is a better way to initiate a new shooter to the revolver. There is no shortage of inexpensive used 4" Model 10 or Model 19 S&Ws out there that would work great for your needs.
YMMV.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

If you live anywhere in the Marion County Oregon area, I know where you can get a blue Taurus 905.
