People here in the hills say "10 em em" Or "nine em em" Whatever the case may be. Sends ripples down my spine but I don't try to change their thinking. I like the "10 Millimeter" sound, myself.

The original is the .41 Magnum. So to piss off folk, I like to call it the .41 Auto.

Pronounce it as it is...

"10 maximum mofo"

Of course, the preferred pronunciation is not to abbreviate anything.

It's pronounced "NEW: and then "CLEAR".

Just for starters...
10MM is ALWAYS stated in CAPITOL LETTERS !

And another point...
It's refered to as a .38-40 Rimless if used in a revolver (I use a S&W 610 in "urban cowboy" class).

And the only "Badder" semi auto is a .44 AutoMag ! (Yep, got one of them too !)

Class Dissmissed !
