So ive been reading and it says that the nato round has higher pressure and puts your hand gun through more stress. would it be bad to buy 9mm Nato instead of 9mm luger?

All modern 9's can handle Nato, although it's not easy to come by true Nato ball ammo. 124 grain +p HP's tend to be Nato pressure. Just because it says Nato doesn't mean it actually is (like the Winchester Ranger Nato)

not bad! by the way out of 3 9mms (9mm/9mmnato/9mm+P) 9mm nato is in the middle pressure wise.

Original 9mm Luger was way higher pressure than what's used today. Luger's won't run on low pressure ammo.
