I, havent considered that but ill look into it now that you mentioned it I like cowboy guns ...

If it were me it would be a no on a 9mm revolver,i'd get a magnum revolver and also a similar .22 revolver for alot of practice at a savings.This would save alot of money if both the magnum and 22 are low cost revolvers,but if they are both high end S&W revolvers you may never see a savings by getting both a magnum and a 22,so if you are getting just one really good quality revolver a 9mm may very well be a good idea that could be a compromise between cost,power,and practice time.

I thought about a 22 but I wanted something with more recoil for practice sake, if you know what I mean.

I understand that,but if you get a really light .22 such as the Ruger LCR,which I believe is about 15 oz,the recoil will be alot greater than what you might think,especially with a hotter load like a CCI 40 grain velocitor.

Anybody ever hear about/consider/fire 9mm ammo thru a .357 using moon clips? If possible and safe, that would make a serious SHTF option.

FYI - don't bother w/ the 9mm/.357 thing, 9mm cases will not fit into the chambers of my S&W model 19-3!
