    i'm trying to decide on a carry weapon, i'm torn between between several including but not limited to a bersa minifirestorm 9mm and an xd9 sc but i'm pretty open.

    any suggestions? :o

    Thread says I'm trying to decide on a carry weapon. My options are not limited to a revolver. The thread title states what I'm looking for.

    so you are after 9mm compact autos or a revolver?

    like a .38 special?

    your title is unclear let's just say

    i like simplicity. if i can buy an asston of 9mm for several weapons, it would make my life easier. my planned purchases include a 9mm 1911, 9mm XD tactical, 9mm XDSC and maybe a glock 34. :o

    oh, and i currently have a p228 :p

    There are no 9mm revolvers to consider. The S&W was discontinued and is expensive to buy because of its rarity. The moonclips on the taurus are crap. Its a shame because 9mm should be a decent snub cartridge but as it stands now you pick .38spl or .357 mag is you want a reasonable snub.

    a 9mm 1911 is too big for your purposes and i'm guessing everyone here will laugh at you

    I asked the same question on another forum. This is one of the answers I got. I'm going to steer clear of 9mm revolvers unless I can find a good deal on a S&W.

    Neither did I. They look pretty simple to use but if they're that much of a pain in the ass then I'm not going to fuck with them. Why bother with a revolver if you have to have a special clip to use it? You might as well just get a gun with a detachable mag.

    Your .38spl won't use moonclips most likely. The rim on revolver cartridges like .38spl or .357 mag is usually allowed to do the job. Rimless cartridges like 9mm though will generally have to be clipped to be used in a revolver. Some people will have their revolvers machined to allow moon clips for the speed of reloading, there is such a thing as rimmed 9mm brass, etc but for the most part the rim is the magic between moon clips and no clips for revolvers.
