Criminals Adopting .9mm Handguns—For Obvious Reasons

“Samrawit Mohamed, 23, was in a vehicle with two others that was stopped early Thursday morning near Main Street and Collingwood Avenue” in Whitehall, OH 10tv.com reports. “Police said that during a search of the vehicle and occupants, they discovered marijuana and Hydrocodone pills. Authorities said that they found a bag of seven doses of heroin on the ground. They said they believed Mohamed or one of the others in the car dropped the bag. An officer searched Mohammed and found an open beer in her pants along with a gun in her underwear. According to court documents, Mohamed allegedly had a Cobra .9mm handgun hidden in her underwear that was loaded with two rounds. Mohamad faces a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.” And how!

    This dangerous .9mm is what the Feds should be grabbing! It keeps popping up and if this is allowed to continue, somebody is gonna get hurt. Damn things will put your eye out.

      This is what we’ll be left with–.9mm with two round mags.

        Or a musket, just so long as its not an “assult musket” Randy

          If you mill the bayonet stud off the musket will be legal. And no muzzle brakes.

    What the heck good are two rounds in ANY caliber?!

    1. avatar Bulldog says:

      My 2-round over-under suits me just fine for skeet, but it’s kinda hard to maintain proper form or hit anything when I stuff too many pill bags down my pants.

    .o3 cal is the wave of the future.

    so they’re un familiar with firearm nomenclature. and you make this joke. and nothing changes. how long til someone makes it again? probably first have to rail on someone for saying “clip” instead of “magazine”. how about marlin http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firearms/xt/XT22.asp?

    1. avatar RKflorida says:

      I guess you didn’t think it was funny, eh?

    2. avatar Patrick says:

      It says “clip magazine”, as opposed to “tubular magazine”. The thing is a magazine; “clip” is an adjective. However, adjectives are sometimes used to represent the nouns with which they are most commonly used, so “clip” could work.

      In this case I think we’re just drawing attention to the lack of editing, and/or knowledge of ammunition nomenclature, displayed when someone refers to projectiles a mere .9 mm in diameter. We can assume the author doesn’t actually think they’re .035″. That’s small.
      We all make mistakes. 🙂

      1. avatar Wiregrass says:

        I don’t think this is a just an editing mistake. This is not just ignorance of firearms. This is just plain ignorance of metric units. There was a time when metric units were obscure enough that this sort of mistake was understandable. Now that most everything is manufactured some place else, you ought to be able to pick this up by osmosis.

      First, the .9mm thing has been an ongoing joke here for sveral months. But realize, it’s these very same people that can’t get their terminology right that have a major influence in how the non-gun owning public perceives and learns about firearms. And it is also these same people that have an influence on what kinds of definitions we get in legislation. Some of the ninnies in congress don’t know guns at all, other than that they are black in color, and scary, and need to be controlled because they are evil. So imagine a bill put before congress outlawing all ammunition .9mm and larger? I fully realize it won’t pass written that way, but when it is changed, then the Brady bunch can say that the NRA “Forced” changes that compromise the safety of the public by opening an ammo “loophole”

      Keep in mind that this is pretty much the same batch of nitwits in congress that told us not to worry what was in the Obama care bill, just pass it and we’ll learn what is in it later. That is why many of us want these definitions straightened out from the beginning.

      1. avatar Patrick says:

        This is true. One does have to watch how things are worded, even if it seems like a little mistake. I just mainly didn’t want to sound like a big jerk, mocking their editing skills when I probably made a bunch of typos in my own comment. Good points, though.

      2. avatar Wiregrass says:

        What you are saying is very true. A liberal friend of mine just this past week posted an image showing an assortment of firearms under the heading “Legal” with “Automatic Weapons” at the bottom. One of the firearms shown was a .44 magnum revolver. I told him that since this is what his side thinks are automatic weapons, he shouldn’t be surprised that we are dug in against “reasonable” gun control.

    Lucky that it’s a firearm, not a stick in her underwear. Would not want to find that out in the bedroom.

  6. avatar EATENG says:

    wtf is a “.9mm” caliber???

  7. avatar Pulatso says:

    .9mm…that’s some serious fire power. Maybe I should trade up from my .357 gauge revolver.

    1. avatar Mike in NC says:

      I know that you meant .357 *caliber* revolver, but as typed you found the other extreme and defined a small cannon:

      “.357 gauge” means a lead ball weighing 2.67 pounds having a diameter of 2.317 inches.

      2. avatar Nate says:

        I think you missed the joke.

  8. avatar Kir Janja says:

    Funny, it looks like our criminals (here across the pond) have completely different approach to firepower, because I always hear about dreadful 38mm or 45mm guns…

    1. avatar Logan P says:

      Good lord, that’s an example of over-compensating if I’ve ever seen one.

    2. avatar bontai Joe says:

      Do your politicians make the same mistake when speaking about firearms (like some of ours do)? Because if they don’t know better, how in the world can they write applicable laws?

      1. avatar Robert Farago says:

        Well they’d have to read them first . . .

      2. avatar Logan P says:

        I had a lady friend from the UK who I brought shooting for the first time in her life. We took pictures and had a good time, but after landing at Heathrow she not-very-politely ‘requested’ that the pics be deleted.
        Apparently she was of the impression that having pictures of herself with a. 22 is grounds for arrest. Oofda

        1. avatar mountocean says:

          Arrested might be a strech, but I doubt the Autrallian swimmers expected the heat they got last summer over some photos in a US gun store.

      Seems like open carry would be your only option.

      1. avatar Anon in CT says:

        On top of an Infantry Fighting Vehicle maybe?

        Does the 45mm come in a Bofors, or do they just do the vanilla 40mm?

        Actually, what’s really funny is that these journalists are generally a bunch of Europe-worshipping lefties who are not only clueless about guns, but are also completely clueless about the metric system, though many of their ilk push its adoption here. Even if you know squat about firearms, you should understand that a .9mm anything is vanishingly small.

  9. avatar Casey T says:

    Just another example of how journalism has gone down the toilet.

  10. avatar matt says:

    Dunno why this was deleted, so i’ll say it again. Care to email me RF?

    It may not be as small as .9mm, but I do have a Berloque pistol which fires a 2mm round.

    1. avatar Larry says:

      This is what the gun control zealots might allow. Sounds like this guy is in the UK. He could probably go to prison for that.

  11. avatar Don says:

    Looks like she took one in the lower lip.

  12. avatar Hunley says:

    This is almost as bad as a local newspaper reporting that a man tried firing a 300mm Winchester Magnum rifle at code enforcement authorities. I’ve heard the 300mm Winchester Magnum kicks like a mule, but not as bad as the 338mm Winchester Magnum.

    1. avatar Logan P says:

      And here I was under the impression they only had those on older battleships.

  13. avatar speedracer5050 says:

    I feel sorry for the cop that had to find all that crap in her underwear. Glad it wasn’t me.
    Who knows what would have been crawling on your hand and arms afterwards.

  14. avatar Aharon says:

    I hope the police gave that poor little gun a bath.

  15. avatar Lance says:

    yeah strange I dont see too many gang banger having AR but alot of them have cheap 9mm crapola pistols.

  16. avatar Sanchanim says:

    Gawd I hope the cop had gloves on when pulling the gun from where ever it was jammed into! Yuk!!!

    Now a felon, maybe she won’t be able to vote for free shit from taxpayers any longer.
