Nine Is OK By Me

I didn't mean to confuse anyone when I accused Larry Vickers of being a shill.

He is.  Accept it.

You might notice a more historical bent to many of my posts?

John Moses Browning's influence in firearms design is still being felt today.

Acknowledging that doesn't mean I am a irredeemable heathen worshiping at the altar of .45 ACP in the Church of Browning.

I've long held that 5.56 and 9mm were perfectly fine rounds.  Ask anyone who played Twilight 2000 with me all the way back in 1985!

I bought my first Glock 17 in 1989.  My second not long after (because I wasn't 21 and couldn't bring the first one back home from Europe).  What caliber was the Glock 17 again?  Correct! 9x19mm Parabellum/Luger/NATO.

Yes, I carried a 1911 in .45 for a while.  I happen to like the 1911 and accept its limitations with regards to capacity and maintenance.

But if I was completely opposed to 9mm, I'd have never have gotten a 1911 in .38 Super!  The fact is I shoot the 1911 well and I'm comfortable with it.

A level of comfort that's beginning to take hold with my S&W M&P 9.  This winter I will be carrying that instead of a 1911 as soon as I scrounge enough money for a set of holsters.


  1. You are forgiven, but as act of contrition, you must buy a 1911 in 9mm :D
