Default 9mm out of 380??

Customer came in stating he wanted a 380 because he saw his friend shooting 9mm out of his 380... I go on to say that it was impossible ( I may be wrong) he says he witnessed it... I have never seen a 380 be able to shoot a 9mm what are your guys views

This had been addressed in an earlier thread. See the photo of a Walther PPK380:

In essence 380 is 9mm.......9mm short

Default 9mm out of 380??

Guy is going to be disappointed. This is a 9mm in a 380 mag and barrel. It will not fully go in the barrel and is a tighter fit than the 380. Also it will not go in the mag or mag well of my cw380. The 380 will drop freely in the barrel and set like the bottom right picture. Once the casing of the 9mm hits the barrel I had to force it in till it stopped.

This is the first time I've heard of buying a gun for the ammunition.

Normally, I buy ammunition for the gun.

You must be some kind of salesman. I doff my hat to you!

That would be "Kurz", German for "Short".

Kurtz was a Colonel in the movie Apocalypse Now.
