    I just got 1000rds of Fiocchi 9mm Luger and was wondering how to properly pronounce the name:embarassed:. I've heard FEE-OKIE and FEE-OTT-CHI.
    What say the experts?

    FEE-OH-CHI... Not sure if thats right or not, but thats how I've always said it....

    Edit: Actually, looking at the spelling, thats almost definitely wrong.

    Post #2 might offer some insight...

    Correct is "fee-OH-key"

    I've called the US headquarters in Springfield MO at least twice and that's the way the phone is answered. I still call it "fee-OH-chi", probably because I originally thought that was the correct pronunciation.

    I pronounce it "Fee-oh-shee", but I am known to mispronounce words rather often. Normally I point and describe the color of the box I wish to be handed, when at a fun store. I learned that as a toddler, and it works well to this day. When ordering online, pronunciation is unimportant.
