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! :D

    Boy do I feel like I just farted loudly in a crowded elevator! :oops: :roll: :shock:

    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. :wink:

    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. :D

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

    Hey, I saw someting posted a while ago, It was a link to a site that talked about why 9mm was a comperable round. It also linked to comparisons of balistics testing. Does anyone know the link or which thread mentioned it?
    Thanks

    :shock: .....you guys really know how to break a guy's stones......(I like it)

    Not to flame anyone here, as we all are human and are entitled to make our share of mistakes, It never ceases to amaze me at how little many at my own range know about the guns they shoot, and firearms in general.

    As I've stated in other posts, I'm a big fan of wheel guns (that's a revolver to those who don't know 8) ), and every time I take my Ruger Vaquero single action to the range with my .45 Colt black powder loads, at least 3 people walk up to me with a totally confused look on their face, and ask what the hell it is that I'm shooting. Some have even claimed to never seeing an SAA type revolver before, and I always ask them...."Dude, haven't you ever seen a Western movie, that thing in John Wayne's hand wasn't made of plastic like that Glock you got in that holster".......

    It's high time to turn off MTV, and watch the History Channel, they run a series of shows called "Tales of the Gun" that is one of the best documenteries on the history of firearms. Also "Wild West Tech" is an outstanding show that features a lot of gun history.

    Next to the 10 rules of firearms safety, an indepth knowlege of calibers and cartridges is one of the most important things we all should have.

    Sorry for the soap box rant guys, but I'm training to be a certified NRA firearms instructor.......
