9x19 and 9mm luger
 
WHats the difference exactly? Can they be shot out of the same gun?

The 9 is how many mm across. 19 is the total length in mm. There is no difference.

Well length of the casing is 19mm not total length of casing and bullet.

There are about a dozen different 9mms- not all of which are 9mm, and most of which will not interchange.

As he said up there ^- the PROPER name is 9mm Parabellum. Other names for the same cartridge are 9mm Luger, and 9X19.

Just never think 9x18 is "close enuff" :( :)

Something I find interesting. Parabellum comes from a Latin term meaning- if you won't peace prepare for war.

Isn't the 9x18 a bit too fat for a regular 9mm, as well as too short? I wonder, but shouldn't, would it chamber it a regular/x19/parabellum 9mm pistol.

I still think a Bersa Thunder in 9x18, rather than .380, would be cool, especially with the double-stack magazine model.
