    Can I load the 9mm luger ammo to the Charter arms Pitbull 9mm Revolver 79920 and get good performance?

    I'm not aware of any tests out of a 2.2" barrel to pinpoint the performance that you'd expect to get out of the PITBULL, but I think that the rounds that did well out of 3" barrels would have the best chance of performing well out of a 2.2" barrel

    The weakness of snubs is the short sight radius or the distance between the front and rear sights.
    At close encounters that is not an issue.

    The weakness of snub-nosed revolvers chambered for 9mm is they're firing a cartridge that was never designed to be fired out of a snub-nosed revolver.

    Georg Johann Luger designed the Parabellum-Pistole and the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge together, or another way of saying it is that he originally designed the 9×19mm Parabellum to be fired from the semi-automatic Parabellum-Pistole.

    Not much has changed with the specified dimensions of the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge, and no commercial ammunition manufacturer expects their ammo to be fired from a snub-nosed revolver.

    I've never had any ammo jump crimp in the 9mm PITBULL, for what its worth.

    I have owned a 547 and a 940. The particular 547 that I have was a very poorly assembled sample and needed tuning and shimming to get it to have a decent trigger pull and still be reliable. The extractor worked great though. The 940 was perfect as long as you didn't shoot really hot +p or +P+. Those would sometimes cause the primer to flow back into the firing pin bushing. 'Normal' ammo and it was perfectly reliable.

    A LONG time ago I had a Ruger Speed Six in 9mmP. Awesome revolver. Built like a tank, handled well, shot everything. stupid stupid stupid day when I sold it.

    I also used to own a Taurus 905 and have very much regretted selling it. I have shot a 9mm LCR some and seems to be a nice one also. Somewhat snappier than the other all steel revolvers. I wish Ruger would make a run of 3" 9mm LCR kit guns.

    I shot my Charper arms 9mm revolver today, but there is one issue I don’t understand, all double/single action handgun I had shot are same, the first fire is double and after that all are single, but this gun are all double unless I pull down the hammer, is this normal?

    Yes, that is normal.

    Normally only semi-autos have a trigger that is initially double action and after it is fired and cycles, every subsequent shot is single action.

    There were some exotic revolver designs like the Mateba, Landstad, and Webley-Fosbery, but they're not your common every-day revolver.

    Most revolvers have either single-action only or double / single action. With a single-action revolver, the hammer must be cocked manually, this also rotates the cylinder. The trigger then simply drops the hammer. With a double action / single action revolver, the trigger will turn the cylinder and pull back the hammer if its not already cocked and will drop the hammer in one stroke of the trigger. The double action / single action revolver also allows the hammer to be cocked manually, in which case the trigger simply drops the hammer.

    To WC145 and Brian Williams - I'd be interested to hear your observations concerning POA/POI firing 9mm through guns originally designed for 38 spec.

    Maybe because the OP asked specifically about 9mm revolvers?
