Summer is coming to South America, and I've been stuck at home with a knee injury thinking about a new addition to my warm weather arsenal. I've been looking at a Ruger SP101 in 9mm. I love two things about it, first the reload speed using full moon clips (much faster than a speed loader!) and second that spare ammo is much easier to carry since loaded clips are a lot smaller than loaded speed loaders (both .38 and .357 rounds are longer than 9mm and my HKS speed loaders are bulkier than full moon clips). Speed strips aren't an option for me, I'm just too slow with them. So this little revolver looks like a great option for the brutal South American heat. I'm just wondering what sort of performance to expect from 9mm in such a short barrel. What do you guys think?
