28. How about a 9mm revolver?
Taurus makes (or made) a 9mm stubbie 5-shot. More power than a .38 but less than a .357 Mag, and you have a variety of permium ammo to pick from. Lots of bullet weights and such to choose from. Plus cheap practice ammo!

Taurus uses a "Stellar" full-moon clip that you can load and unload without special equipment. And full-moon clips load fast into a revolver's cylinder. Champion shooter Jerry Miculek can empty a 6-shot .45 ACP revolver, reload it, and empty it again in 2.99 seconds.

Can't say I ever shot one, but I like the concept, especially for cops. Their backup revolver can match the 9mm on their hip in case their autopistol is lost or stolen.
