Not my newest gun, in fact I've owned it for quite some time. Coonan Model B .357 magnum autoloader.

There's nothing quite like 8 + 1 rounds of FULL power .357 magnum.

You've got big ol' mitts for hands, don't you Vroom? I'd like to shoot that.

My wheel only hold 7 rds of .357... taking down those last two zombies could mean the diference between fighting more zombies for looking for some flesh of your own!

The lower is easy. The upper (from what I've read) is more difficult and requires a few special tools. There are tons of build pages that offer step-by-step pics. It's like an erection set!

I'll keep your recommendation in mind if I hear of somebody looking for a 9mm.
I have an old P89. I would rely on it in a heartbeat.

It was reliable, I never had a problem with it. Just was kinda "meh." since I bought it. My wife didn't like it, she could barely rack the slide on it. I make sure she knows how any gun in the house operates, and she is a great shot. That gun never really did any thing for me, and I thought it shot really poorly, at least for me, accuracy wise. Off hand, I could never really group well with it.

My Patriot Ordnance POF-415. Lousy picture. Great rifle.

Next up is an EO Tech XPS sight, and fixing up my Surefire pressure switch on the folding grip in a neat, professional manner.

I really like the look of the XD9. Is it a 7+1?

I have a Pachmayr grip on it, and it doubled the shootability of it. Whenever I would take an ex-girlfriend shooting, that's the one they always liked the most. I have an assortment, too.

I had the Pachmayr, too. I did cut the front rubber portion off, so my wife could get her hands around it.

You know, I've barely been in the WR since it re-opened. Perhaps that's my problem...

Meh, I'm sure my problem runs much deeper than that!
