It kind heavy at 22oz and you have to deal with a revolver cylinder with. I love revolvers and CC'd one for many years but a 9mm revolver?? never. I can carry more rounds in a thinner lighter package with a pistol. And I do. Now if it weight 13 to 15oz and had a clinder only long enough for a 9mm, maybe it would make sence to more . Might as well by a 357 at 23oz. You can still shoot 38sp loads.
