For home defense, I already have two .38 K-frames stashed here and there (and a .38 GP100 sitting in the safe). For CCW I have two G19s and a G26, plus a safe queen Kahr K9 (which I'm looking to replace with a SIG 239). So I have no real need for a J-frame sized CCW gun but recently began thinking I should, "just because." I want a 9mm instead of .38 because I have a lot more 9mm Gold Dots than I have .38 Gold Dots.
I'm glad Ruger has brought out a LCR in 9mm. I'm hoping they will soon also bring out a SP101 in 9mm.
Although many good citizens own and carry guns, keeping communities safe still fall on those who carry badges.
In a gun fight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
