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

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.

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.
