    Ok.. I went in to my LGS the other day and ask if they had any 9mm in stock the guy said yeah four boxes, I said cool I'll take them.

    I have a Glock 17 and normally shoot 9mm Luger but the new ammo I got is 9mm Nato 124gr is that ok to use in my 17?

    Your Glock 17 was designed to fire Nato spec ammo. You will wear out long before your Glock does.

    You are go to go.


  3. 9mm Luger, 9mm Nato, 9mm Parabellum and 9X19mm are all different names for the same cartridge!!! Along with 9mm+P and 9mm+P+.

    Some might be loaded slightly hotter but any 9mm pistol of recent manufacture in good condition will be able to safely shoot any of those. A constant diet of 9mm+P+ in an older gun might not be recommended. But for 100 or so rounds a year it should be fine.

    Especially with a Glock you will be fine with any of them!

    Yep. I've run that ammo through my G19 & G26 just fine, no problems.

    Consider yourself lucky you found that 9mm ammo, unless you paid an exorbitant price. It should be great practice ammo that comes close to duplicating your premium JHP self-defense carry rounds.

  6. I'm jealous! Been all over northern Arizona and southern Utah - no 9mm anywhere...not even the expensive stuff. Even Cabella's on line warehouse was out of ALL brands of 9mm ammo. We had a hoarder's rush after CT. Then a hoarder's rush after the legislation announcement. Shelves are bare. There will be a third hoarder's rush when some ammo starts to drift in. I just wanna get some to take to the range...

    Get all you can before the hoarders get there!

    No problem. Use it. The 9mm Parabellum goes by many names.
