9mm

  1. New to the Forum, specific 9mm handloading question

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    Hi all, I'm new to the forum but not a new shooter or handloader. However I did get some strange results at the range this afternoon with an experimental batch of 9mm that's got me scratching my head. The Gun: GEN 3 Glock 34, OEM barrel. The press: Hornady Lock n Load The projectile...
  2. Cheap handguns

    Handguns
    I want to purchase a 9mm handgun. I have a colt cobra .357 revolver I inherited, but I want something more compact and semi auto. At gun shows i see a lot of Taurus under 450$, which usually means they are 300$ at a gun shop. I hear good and bad things about them, and the gun shop owners always...
  3. Kel Tec PF9

    Handguns
    I recently got myself a Kel Tec PF9. Contrary to rumors, the one that I bought (traded for at a gun shop) new runs flawlessly. Yes, I know. It's not an expensive gun, nor is it crafted with very expensive materials. I have had several rim-fire handguns (both revolvers, and semi-auto pistols)...

    Saw a Scyy 9mm carry pistol for $269 at a local gun shop, looked and felt good, but have not heard much about it. Anyone have experience with it... Is it reliable? Any feeding problems? Works with any ammo?

  8. Most Ridiculous Ballistic Myth?

    Ballistics - Internal and External
    We have all heard what I'm going to call "ballistic myths". Their the old gun store folk wisdom passed down from generation to generation. One that I heard just recently was somewhat of a stretch; "Being shot by a 12ga with buckshot is like being shot by a 9mm nine times!". Now lets look at...
  9. My new Ruger LC9 safety

    Handguns
    I'm about to be stationed in California, so when I bought my handgun I wanted to make sure it was loaded with all the superfluous safety features that California requires. I chose the Ruger LC9. It comes with a 1911-style safety that theoretically keeps the slide from racking; however, with the...
  10. 9mm velocities too high??

    Handloading Equipment
    I'm new to reloading, so I've been very careful to ensure the powder charge and OAL are very close to specs. Using the 550B, Power Pistol at 5.3 grains, Sierra 8125 bullets, OAL at 1.075 or slightly greater. Went to the range today and did some chronographing. Pretty consistent at or near 1450...
  11. What Dies are necessary for loading 9mm?

    Handloading Equipment
    I would like to start reloading 9 mm, I have everything except dies (mostly because of unavailability). But what dies are absolutely needed for reloading 9mm? It seems way different from rifle reloading. if anyone knows of a video that explains everything I would appreciate it. and are lee dies...
  12. Finding ammo at fair prices online?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hey guys, I posted a bit ago in a now-closed thread about ammo shortages. I've been looking for 9mm and .223 which are getting ridiculously hard to find where I'm at. The local shortage forced me to get online to find ammo, and I can't believe some of the price-gouging out there. One of my...
  13. Norinco T54 problem

    Handguns
    I have a Norinco T-54 in 9mm. I took it shooting the other day and the slide keeps sticking back after a shot is fired. When it is stuck back you just have to hit it forward and it slides easy and chambers the next round but as soon as you fire it sticks again. It is like it is sliding to far...

  16. Why more than a 9mm?

    Handguns
    I do not understand why anyone needs more that a 9mm to carry? I carry either a .380 or 9mm IWB with good ammo and trust both of these guns completely. If you put a round or two in center mass with a .380 or 9mm I'm sure the guy is not gonna stand there laughing and say it's not enough gun. It...

  19. Carry loads for 9mm

    Handgun Cartridges
    What are you guys carrying for a concealed carry 9mm load? Not interested in the minimum caliber debate (at least not here). Sometimes I'm carrying something bigger when practical but I love the caliber and it's entirely adequate and EASY TO SHOOT WELL. I'm curious about your experiences or...
