    Someone commented on the Mean mag inserts at another group. My thought on them you still have to pay $10-$15 for the magazine and they COULD be confused with a .223 mag or vice-versa. I like my Glock-fed AR-9. I have over 1000rds worth of magazines that can fit the pistol or carbine...

    I heard on a ammo form that a couple of ammo companys are working on ammo for pistol caliber carbines.
    I'm guessing higher pressure longer/ slower burning powder to squeeze out as much speed as you can out of the longer barrel but slow enough burn that you wouldn't over pressure a pistol but the flash would be spectacular

    Most IMI and all 9mm NATO rounds are loaded to about 38000 psi so they'll cycle all those heavy open bolt military weapons.

    Most commercial 9mm, is loaded to ~35,500 psi. I wouldn't say that is really anemic, but is comparable to shooting mild 38 special to +P 38 Special. It's a notable difference.

    Personally, I like shooting 165gr handloads. The thump of the bullet striking the backstop is the dominant sound. And it has a decent thump too.

    Nah, just fortunate to have been raised in a family that taught me a lot of stuff. I've been around guns all my life.

    I was shooting guns before I could keep the color in the lines. That is very true.

    I'm still digging on the Henry .357 magnum. I have certainly not shot this carbine nearly enough.

    I didn't consider my .45-70 Marlin to be a pistol caliber carbine, until my buddy showed up with this.

    That's just a still shot. There's no video. That is a stainless Magnum Research, and it's no harder to shoot than the .44 Ruger Magnum. It is larger heavier and more powerful though.

    When I was shooting with a military pistol club we would use whatever 9mm was issued... some was Ok, I think it was French made..Gevrely (sp?), but there was some called 2Z which was aweful to shoot in competitions... the theory was that it was higher powered for SMGs...
