I've always wanted to try a 9mm revolver, but have yet to have the opportunity. I look forward to reading your report on it.

Is this one of those with the clever gubbins that eliminates the need for moon clips?
A kitten told me to do it.

It uses moon clips. Taurus calls them "stellar clips." I plan to get some from these guys.


Also want a couple of these carriers.

Really enjoyed my first range experience with it. I know the reviews on the Taurus 905 vary widely. Fired 50 rounds of Winchester White Box through it. The third shot of the first five didn't fire. Primer seemed to be struck same as the others, but it didn't go bang. I hit it again & it went off. That was the only issue I had, otherwise a flawless first experience.
