    I hate 9mm

    Reasons why I hate 9mm


    1. Availability.

    You have to be on welfare or a government job to be available when its loaded off the truck at your local store.


    2. Cost.

    $25 per fifty FMJ's. Get real


    3 Power.

    We all know why they put so many bullets in a 9mm magazine. Trying to compensate for something.

    1. Availability: I've been having consistent luck at my LGS getting FMJ in stock, and I'm more than fully employed. They've also got Gold Dot. TDS is starting to get HST back in stock.

    2. Cost: $12-15/box of 50 FMJ/TMJ. ~$32 per 50 for HST. Consistently less expensive than .45 and .40 right now.

    3. Not interested in playing the caliber war. I carry .300WM over my shoulder if I'm really worried about knock-down power.

    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    'Just a bump in the road.

    I chose 9mm because it is a ubiquitous round that gets the job done.

    Just because it's expensive right now, does not mean that it is scarce. It has been hoarded by the citizens and it's sitting out there in mountain heaps. The tide will come back in again.

    1. There's plenty available online and everything should be close to back to normal in the next few months, but if you want something now.. (see #2)

    2. then you have to pay what the market demands now. This is the basic law of supply and demand. Unfortunately, supply was hit hard by fear of gun grabbers which is leading to a perpetuating desire to scoop up ammo as soon as it is available.

    3. There are plenty of arguments one way or the other. When I chose to go 9mm, it was the least expensive option for me (outside of .22LR). I've seen just as limited supply of .40 and .45, so I recognize that the supply and demand issues aren't limited to just 9mm.

    Eventually, the market will get back to normal and prices will stabilize. Until then, you can choose to wait, shoot something else, or buy at current rates. The internet makes it much easier to find ammo than driving around to all your local retail stores.

    Yes, but when someone gets hit with a brussel sprout they go down.

    I'm glad I don't do my shopping where you do.

    Personally, I like any round that gives me a chance to go out and blast some targets to smithereens. From .22 on up, they're all awesome and fun to shoot. Sorry the 9mm gives you or anyone such angst.

    1. Availability depends on your location. I have been finding several boxes the past couple weeks. More common than .40 and .45 in my area

    2. Cost is still cheaper in my parts than any other round. I can find some boxes for 32 cents a round, whereas buying ammo for my .40 is at least 50 cents a round (ridiculous)

    3. While I completely disagree with your theory on power, you're entitled to your opinion.
