Is this a new caliber? Is this a revolver load or auto loader? Would you choose one for CCW? Who makes CCW guns in this caliber?

New caliber.
Basically trying to provide .357ish ballistics in a smaller round with less recoil
Gives 6 round capacity in typically 5 round applications
Is a revolver round

I have not shot this round and I love the concept of it but the fact is I don't think it will catch on. Cost of ammo vs. .38 / .357 combined with untested performance will probably keep this one from really taking off.

Right now, as far as I know, the only guns available are the Ruger SP-101 and the Charter Arms Undercover. The Rugers are pretty scarce but some are out there. The ammo is pretty scarce as well but is showing up more now. If things catch on both guns and ammo will become more available just like every other round. New cartridges always take off to a few bumps in production but it eventually smooths out.

I'm looking forward to trying it out as soon as my gun arrives. With the ability to shoot .32 Shorts,Long, H&R Mag, Fed Mag, and even acp will be a very cool platform.
