I have 2 - LCR's...one in .357 and one in .22WMR and 2 - 3" LCRx's in the same configuration. They are extremely well made tough little guns and I would recommend them highly in 9MM configuration. I may still eventually get one. As far as crimp jumping is concerned, I have to agree with Ernie Bass in his above post. In looking at the weight of some auto loaders being the same as the LCR9MM...I'm guessing it is ammo specific. You mention that you reload for the 9MM...is that economically feasible? I understood that it's cheaper to buy bulk than reload. The only thing it would cost me is another set of dies. Regarding my interest in the 9MM semi-auto. We over winter in Florida and the wife indicated her interest in a .380 for conceal carry. She has been shooting my LCR22WMR but was looking into a smaller gun for carry. We went to a local gun show and she keyed on a Kimber Micro .380. I was looking over the array of many different guns when a Glock43X caught my eye. I picked it up and was instantly enamored with it. I decided I was going to get one once I got back home to Michigan. Then all this craziness hit and we are currently hunkered down in North Carolina. We are planning to leave on the 30th and head towards Michigan.I have since rethought my desire for a G43X and decided to look seriously at a Sig Sauer P365 with a manual safety...because I groin carry IWB at 1 o'clock. Insomuch as I believe in keeping one chambered and at the ready when carrying, the thought of a negligent discharge concerns me.
