What Is The Difference Between 9mm and 9mm Luger?

The difference between 9mm and 9mm Luger is either nothing or the latter is part of the former. Depending on how you define it. Huh? Most of the time, when a person says “9mm,” they mean is 9x19mm, which is the most common handgun round. This is what you feed your GLOCK 19, S&W M&P […]

State Your Case: 9mm vs. .38 Special

When we look at different cartridges there is often a focus on the disembodied numbers that describe them.

Essentially, 270 vs 30-06 comes down to the same idea of 9mm vs .45 ACP, namely easier to shoot […]

State Your Case: 10mm Auto vs. .45 ACP

In my last State Your Case article, I talked about the 9mm vs. .40 S&W. The .40 got a raw deal in that discussion, but I did my best to defend it and make it as equal of a comparison as possible. Today we’re looking at two other titans of the automatic pistol world: the […]
