    Question, do any of you guys know if there is a company that sells a 9mm revolver ? I have an older lady friend that wants to buy her a gun for self protection. Her hands want alow her to pull back a slide on a semi auto. I would like to see her with atleast a 9mm.

    Why not just get a .38spl. revolver? They have been handling the self defense roll for decades and the selection is enormous.

    Taurus seems to make a small-frame 9mm revolver, the Model 905. It looks like S&W and Ruger don't offer them any more - people seem to be asking high prices for them ($700 and up).

    I've never fired 9mm in a J-frame size revolver, so I don't know what that's like. I'd suggest a 3-inch barrel and large grips, if available.

    Taurus makes one called the model-905.It has moon clips,and all the rounds come out and reload all at once.I wanted one because I have a 9mm semi-auto and it used the same ammo.Now the bad news,it stings your fingers hard core and is very snappy.I sold it because I like to shoot my guns.Look into the new Taurus 380 revolver or a 38 special.Just my opinion!There are other 9mm and 380 revolvers from the 1970's and early 80's but they are very expensive.In the 700-900 dollar range.They are not made any more just Taurus.Good Luck!

    I once had a Smith 547 which is on the K frame I don't know what I was thinking when I traded that one

    i agree.. get a 38spl revolver.. my wife can't operate a semi auto slide either.. but can shoot a t-85 revolver. she practices with regular stuff.. and has shot plusP to know what it will feel like when she has to use it for self defense. for ease of use i keep a smith 38spl by my side of the bed.. she keeps her tarus by her side. kind of a no hassel deal with a revolver.. no jambs.. etc. between the 2 of us we got 10 rounds of self defense. I got a mossberg scattergun just above the bed.. and others within close reach.. ;)

    and usually with the 9mm revolvers you have to use moon clips. I had a 3" Smith many years ago that was a police contract gun that used moon clips.

    Ruger Blackhawk...just a bit too big for her hands though. Get her a .38, much larger selection and probably more in her price range.

    As many of the others have suggested, go with a small frame 38.

    Ruger did make a small run of SP 101s in 9mm. Good luck finding one though, I've tried.

    I gotta join the .38 bandwagon. How about this, a nice .357 magnum that fits her hands well. Then she can shoot .38, and you can "borrow" it now and then and have some magnum fun?

    I own and shoot both a S&W 547 and 940.
    I also agree with the 38 spl for someone
    who needs the small size gun.
