    In reading all the replies, I didn't see "this item".
    Blowback vs. locked breech design.

    Wouldn't a blowback in 9mm have a REALLY stiff spring, and be REALLY hard to chamber a round ?
    ( see the Beretta Tomcat .32 Auto tilt-barrel for an attempt to solve the "spring problem" ).

    Wouldn't a locked breech design of some kind be a nasty design problem ?
    ( see the REALLY expensive Rohrbaugh "solution" ).

    Oops, I forgot. I should really research "stuff" before commenting.

    Since the OP specified use of the LCP platform, the proposed 9mm version would be a locked-breech design, just like the LCP.

    Why not just get the LCR?

    Totally reliable. Light wight; small. .38 +P or .357 mag. (Impossible to jam.)

    Not one for the range, but what do you care?

    That is starting to make more and more sense to me.

    I think making a little larger LCP in whatever caliber would defeat
    the whole concept of the LCP.I carry it in an Active Pro Gear back
    pocket holster.It fits just right.Looks like a billfold in my back pocket.
    (jeans).Any larger,and I'd have to go another route.I know the 9 M.M.
    is much more in the like of self defence.I do however,use S/D loads
    in my LCP.I think if the time came?Excluding a "high on heroin"junkie?"
    I can honestly say"Say hello to my little friend".
