I like the LCR... I have a .357 version. But I don't know about a 9mm one..

Say you lose your moon clip and now you have an inoperable weapon

Most revolvers like this will function without the moon clips, both of mine do. It wouldn't be fast but it wouldn't be inoperable either. This is a copy of the LCR 9mm manual insert explaining how to use the moon clips.

I thought moon clips were just for ejecting?

They double as a speed loader that you simply drop in the cylinder making for the fastest reloads possible with a revolver.

A package of eight 9mm moon clips from Midway USA is $9.99.
Think of moon clips as very very inexpensive magazines.
My S&W 625 .45 acp uses moon clips.
I have at least 40 of them.
Very easy to load /un-load a revolver with pre-loaded moon clips.

I was just looking at the charter arms 9mm and 40sw revolver. It looks like they have a pretty solid setup!

Yes, like when you lose your magazine with an automatic. Does that happen to you often?

I cant speak for him but ive misplaced plenty of mags before. Considering the small size of moon clips id venture to say it would be even easier to misplace those.

If there's a problem with the idea of using moon clips with a cc revolver it is that spare moon clips are not very concealable (just like a speed loader), unless you have half (or 2-fer) moon clips. I know that 45acp/45ar have half moon clips available, but I don't know about 9mm half moon clips.

I've never lost a magazine or a moon clip in my life. Moon clips do get bent (although I've never bent one either), however, so having a few extra around is nice.

Edit: Considering the cost of buying a new magazine, I'm surprised that losing the first one didn't cure you of the habit.
