Armscor makes the 22 TCM in a 1911.

    Thank You, I will take a look into those.

    Thanks, there is a lot on the table, but I'll take a look more into the .32 ....

    Thank You everyone for your suggestions... I just came back from a two day trip from Virginia from a very young man's wake and funeral (way too young) and my friends needed a lot of support, so I was able to drive up and back some of the way and Wife drove the rest. Judging from how my hand feels, I'm really making a good choice on choose a new firearm and replacing my 9mm auto. No rush per se.. but here is some things I'm thinking about..

    The first is, I need to test out.. if I can shoot my TCP 738 380 (.380acp) off handed / weak handed and "maybe" two handed. If I can, then that brings in more options.
    One revolver that I came across, is the Heritage Rough Rider, but the one with the "bird head" handle grips. It also has a 3.5 inch barrel vice the 6 inch one that I already have, so a bit more compact. We'll see.. still making a list.. we'll get there.. The positive side, is at "least" I can still "shoot".. that is the bright side. Regardless.

    My old friend Bruntson is correct...a .32 S&W or S&W Long will have little (if any) more recoil than a good sized .22LR revolver. Taking the idea a bit farther, a .32 H&R Magnum - if it's in a large enough gun - won't have a lot of recoil beyond that...and it will also shoot the super accurate .32 S&W Long. The Magnum should also be fairly effective defense round if it's a good load out of a good gun. I have two revolvers in the .32 mag - A Ruger Single Six and a Taurus 761 (styled after the iconic S&W .32 Masterpiece.) Both are great.

    Sorry to hear about your wrist. Sometimes getting older just sucks.

    Actually, I had my wrist operated on a few months back after an injury.. and unfortunately it's not going to be 100%.. I am happy as I knew going in the operation may not be successful "at all".. so that's why I am getting rid of my 9mm and getting something in a lesser caliber that is a good quality firearm. I also want to get it with a stainless steel slide if I go with an auto'

    Tomorrow, is the big test. I'm going to take my TCP 738 and my PT22 to the range to shoot one handed weak / off handed, and also two handed. I'm pretty sure the PT22 won't be an issue, but the TCP 738.. that's a good question. If I can shoot it two handed, it's gives me more options, including maybe waiting a bit more before I sell / trade my 9mm.
