    I would love to get my hands on a TRR8. 9mm is not my thing when I could have a .357.
    Much jealousy though.

    Looks like a winner and the reviews indicate it will handle 9mm +P and +P+ ammo.

    In fact, some 9mm +P and +P+ ammo can approach .357-like ballistics when loaded with similar weight bullets. While both of the 9mm Smiths are primarily marketed to the competitive shooter, with the proper loads there is no reason why they couldn’t be used for personal/home defense or hunting small- to medium-sized game. - See more at: Gun Review: Smith & Wesson PC Model 929

    I don't own any 9mm, and I already pack .357. I also do not believe in purchasing a product with the sole intention of using special performance ammo.

    I am getting this for USPSA competition. I already shoot Open, Limited, single-stack, and revolver divisions but want to reduce the number of reloads shooting revolver. I presently shoot a S&W 610 in 10mm in revolver division. I wish I could get the 929 in .38 super.

    Why not just Ream the Cyl, and make it a 38 Super... or buy a second cyl and have that Reamed.... Then you could have BOTH...

    I don't think the over-all cylinder length is long enough between the forcing cone to allow a .38 super. Guess I'll find out in a couple of week when I get time to go to Birmingham and pick it up. Reamed for .38 super, it will still handle 9mm so I would only need one cylinder. I shoot .40 S&W in my 10mm most the time.
