Happy 9mm Day!

You probably thought this was National Talk Like a Pirate Day. Nope…not around these parts in the 9th month on the 19th day. Instead, we want to wish a happy 9mm Day to the 9x19mm, 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum (“para bellum” meaning “prepare for war” in Latin), 9mmP, 9mm NATO, 9×19, simply the “9mm,” the dreaded .9mm favored by the MSM, or whatever you prefer to call it.

Most of these photos are from TTAG’s Instagram page, which you should totally follow.

    how did the GLOCK get in there…? 🙂

    Only thing nicer is the sound of empty cases bouncing off concrete.

      You can’t celebrate the 9mm without including a Glock!

    Only missing a HK magazine pic with the round inserted the “correct” way.

    9×19 day, man, I am still getting over all the free vodka from celebrating 9-18 yesterday, party with the Makarovs! Not colluding with the Russians….At least not officially.

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      We would have celebrated 380 day on sunday but we came up a bit short.

      1. avatar Hank says:

        Then we still have 9-21 day, then 9-25. Uhg. Might as well just drink straight through.

        1. avatar Joe R. says:

          No new tattos, and call if you need bail money (or a designated driver).

      2. avatar BLoving says:

        And then there was 9×23 – which was already obsolete before I even knew it existed.

        1. avatar Joe R. says:

          Another toast – to absent friends. . .

    I went to your instagram page (I have never seen instagram before) to see what those copper pentacle bullets were. First, does the page ever end I felt like I was really being teased there. What was the wood on that Nighthawk 1911. That was like Zoolander-Magnum beautiful.

      Copper bullets from the expanded HPs photo: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/06/jeremy-s/ammo-review-gorilla-ammunition-silverback-9mm-380/

      Yeah, Instagram feeds go all the way back to the first photo posted by an account. Mostly, you’re supposed to download the app to your phone, follow companies/people that post photos you’re interested in, and look at them in more or less real time as they’re posted.

      On the @guntruth account, we’re regularly posting pics of guns and gear during the review process a month or two (or three) before the review hits TTAG here. Plus tons of photos that never make it to TTAG.

    Meanwhile, .40S&W gets no love.

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      You got each other and that’s beautiful, man.

      1. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

        There you go. 38 Super and I have been hearing for 40 years how we’d never last.

  9. avatar Geoff PR says:

    Where did those smiley-faced 9mm slugs come from?

      1. avatar TheUnspoken says:

        That’s nothing on the 10mm Lego heads…

  10. avatar Andy says:

    Luger’s little bro .9mm technically can’t have a day to it’s self seeing as the calandar doesn’t do decimals.

  11. avatar Name? Again? says:

    I’m still waiting for May 56th.

    1. avatar Alex Waits says:

      Feb 23?

  12. avatar The Rookie says:

    Italy will be celebrating the event this Thursday.

  13. avatar Andrew Lias says:

    Current favorite 9mm load, Lee 125RN (NOT the TL style bullet) powder coated with 5.8 Blue Dot and a standard SPP.

  14. avatar Mike Betts says:

    What? No Lehigh Extreme Penetrator ammo?

  15. avatar LarryinTX says:

    AAaarrgh, me matey!! Shiver me timbers!

  16. avatar MAGA says:

    Next year, we should designate 9/18 as Makarov day.

  17. avatar andrea from Pisa says:

    9×19 being evil and suitable only for the military.
