To each their own.

I have a DAO SP101 which I can consistently stage and hold for critical aiming. As a matter of fact I prefer that method and shoot my SA/DA Security Six the same way.

Like you said to each there own. I want a hammer on mine. You don't. That's why they make them both ways.

Thanks. It is a nice holster. Found it at a little leather shop in Mayfield Idaho

Gotta agree with ya on that one. Make a SP or even a GP in 9mm with a 4-5 inch barrel and adj. sights.

I agree. Even with a smaller wheel gun, I'd still want a hammer

Every time I think about a 9mm revolver, I ask why (the answer is cheaper ammo). Then I remember I have a .22LR revolver and forget all about the 9mm.

That's the great thing about 9mm. When I'm dumping 30 round mags in my Lone Wolf G9, I just listen to the steel target go ding.
When I'm doing it with my 45/5.56 or 300 win, it sounds like a cash register ringing.

That's like saying "every time I think about a .44 revolver, I ask why (the answer is cheaper ammo). Then I remember I have a .38 revolver and forget all about the .44.

If it was all about the money, ie:cheaper ammo, then I doubt most of us would own half the caliber of revolvers we own now.

I for one am completely enjoying my 3" sp 9mm. Although for me it has been a range toy, I carried the 357. The moon clips are great on the bench and if you're a reloader the brass is every where. Most people will just give it to you plus you can keep track of all your cases.

Your selling the moon clips short, for revolvers I think they are the cats a$$. I thinking about sending out my 357 cylinder and having it cut for moon clips to keep all guns equal. I like having the ability to "pre-load" them up and just carry a bunch to the range. Speed is another plus....

I've got no problems with moon clips. Had they reintroduced this gun with the 3" barrel I'd have one
