Dumb question. Can the 9mm XD chamber 9mm luger rounds?

I am not a big 9mm fan, so my knowledge on this round is limited. A coworker purchased a 9mm XD recently and we finally went to the range. He then brings out his ammo which is 9mm luger. I told him that I did not think that this was the correct round for this pistol. He has bought a bunch of this caliber and this was his first time out with this pistol.

We were mainly shooting longarms so this didn't ruin his trip. Was I correct in warning him against trying to shoot this round in his XD?

Isn't 9x19 the parabellum and not the luger? Or is it the same thing basically with just a marginal difference, kind of like the difference in .308 Win and 7.62 x 51?

Thanks in advance for answering my dumb question! :biggrin:

Thanks backup!

Boy do I feel like I just farted loudly in a crowded elevator!

Well, I will get some ribbing from this!

So is there a 9mm round that you can't shoot from this platform?
I just know someone is going to say .357 sig so I will head that off at the pass.

9x19, 9mm Luger, 9mm Para, 9mm Parabellum = all the same thing.

Not the same as 9mm Luger: 9x18 Makrov, 9mm Kurtz, 9mm short, 9x23.

Tango Sierra, you forgot 9mm Largo and 9x17 (.380ACP). There's got to be at least a half dozen more 9mm variants I can't think of right now.

Edit: Oops. You did list 9mm Short. That's the same as .380 ACP, right?
