36 Caliber for the WIN!
Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to end gun Violence:

“We’ve lost the battle on what the Second Amendment means. Seventy-five
percent of the public thinks it’s an individual right. Why are we
arguing a theory anymore? We are concerned about what we can do

On a slightly different tack, here are the various 9mm cartridges:

- 9x17 = 9mm Kurz = 9mm Short = .380 ACP = 9mm Corto = 9mm Browning. Bullet diameter = .356", weight is typically 87 to 95 gr.
- 9x18 = 9mm Makarov. Bullet diameter = .364", weight is typically 95 gr.
- 9x18Ultra = 9mm Police. Bullet diameter = .356" (used in some Walther pistols. Do not shoot this in your Makarov).
- 9x19 = 9mm = 9mm Parabellum = 9mm Luger= 9mm NATO. Bullet diameter = .356", weight runs from 115 to 147 gr.
- 9x21 - civilian version of 9x19, used in Italy and other countrys where military calibers are banned.
- 9x23 = 9mm Largo = tons of names ( Bullet diameter = .355"
