It's 9mm day..

Postby Tex1961 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:26 am

Today is 9-19 and if you run a 17 round mag.. then doubly so...

So lets all celebrate 9mm day and go to the range... :woohoo

Anything 9mm is my favorite. I have way too many items of this caliber in the safe. So, I'm in!

I have been known to pop a 17 round mag in my Glock 26. Occasionally when I go to the range I will pop the 33 round mag into the 26 and shoot for what seems like a long time. :)

Have also added the Glock 19 Gen 5 to the wish-list.

I just so happen to have packed a couple 9mm's in the range bag today. A Beretta 92FS and a FN Hi Power. Neither has a 17 round mag, though.

So it is parabellum day and I just noticed I have 6, 7, 8, 13, 16, and up magazines but none holding 17 rounds. I guess I have to do the 16 + 1 trick with my CZ 75B.

Wow! I did not realize that 1) I have been ahead of the times, or 2) Hallmark had expanded their holidays to cartridges. Either way, Huzzah!!! My 9x19s are either M&P (these qualify for the "17" bonus), Walther or AR flavored.

Shot the Glock 19 gen 4 and gen 5, Glock 43, and CZ P10c today at the range, I think that pretty much makes it a happy 9x19 day. :smile:

Then today is my day! I carry a SigSauer SP2022. It has a standard 15 round magazine, but I have a Mec-gar +2 mag extender on it making mine a 9-19-17!
