Why I No Longer Own A 9MM

What a day!!! Set up the Projector for .45ACP. Forgot to change to the large primer cup. #$%@ Dumped a full tube of primers all over the floor. *&^@! Missed a 9MM case inside a .45 case and break the decapping pin. Empty the measure and go sit in front of the TV. Today must be my "dumb as a box of rocks" day, as CMSGT Klien used to say.

I haven't owned a 9MM in several years. I must have owned seven or eight before I gave up on 'em. To much work to get decent accuracy, unless you want to send Wilson or Baer your first born. My .45s will turn in a decent performance with just about anything I stuff in 'em.

You think you are having problems mixing 45 and 9mm. Our local range now has a few shooting the 9x18 and leaving their brass. Try sorting out the 9x18 from your 9x19!! These old eyes cannot spot one inch much less one millimeter.
Another reason to stay away 'em.

Necessity has very little to do with owning guns (much like cars). Of the 9MMs I did own the HP was my favorite. Still wasn't as accurate as my .45s. The pressure curve is to spikey in the 9. The .45 is a nice smooth arc.
