Default 9MM Wheel gun

I'm in the market for a 9mm aluminum frame hammer-less revolver....


Any input on a good one?

I can only think of two that fit the bill. The Taurus 905 and the S&W 940.

That's all I've found also.

Any input on which you'd rather carry if you had to?

We're on the same page. I'm leaning to the S&W but I'm realizing they are more rare I guess. I'll just keep my eye out I guess.

I would pick the S&W every time over the Taurus, quality is worth the price.

I bought one of the 1st Taurus 905s that hit the market. It was ok when it came to accuracy but nothing to write home about. The chambers were too tight and I had problems with extracting fired brass. I ended up selling it. I know carry a S&W 642 with .38spcl +P ammo. Much more accurate and no issues of any kind.

I have read that about extracting cartridges with both but more so with the Taurus. I wonder if it's an issue with the behavior of the cartridge itself?
