    Glock 19 9mm question

    Hi,
    I'm new to handguns , in general, just bought a Glock 19 9mm. My question is, on the barrel it says 9x19, on the box of ammo I have it says 9mm Luger, and I've also seen somewhere 9mm parabellum, are these all different, or are they all different names for the same thing?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    9 X 19 and Luger are the same thing. Parabellum is different.

    Ted is correct. For why these different names exist for the same cartridge, see . . .
    9×19mm Parabellum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you are too lazy to connect to the link, here is the substance.

    The 9×19mm Parabellum (abbreviated 9mm, 9×19mm or 9×19) cartridge was designed by Georg Luger and introduced in 1902 by the German weapons manufacturer
    Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) for their Luger semi-automatic pistol.[6] For this reason, it is commonly called the 9 mm Luger cartridge, differentiating
    it from the also-popular 9mm Makarov and 9mm Browning (.380 ACP) cartridges.

    The book Cartridges of the World stated in 2006 that the 9×19mm Parabellum is "the world's most popular and widely used military handgun cartridge."[7]

    The name Parabellum is derived from the Latin: Si vis pacem, para bellum ("If you seek peace, prepare for war"), which was the motto of DWM.


    And, now you know that my email signature and motto has been copped from DWM.
    Si vis pacem, para bellum

    Actually, it existed in various forms far back in history before Georg Luger & DWM.
    Si vis pacem, para bellum is a Latin adage translated as, "If you wish for peace, prepare for war"
    (usually interpreted as meaning peace through strength—a strong society being less likely to be attacked by enemies).
    The adage is from 4th or 5th century Latin author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus's tract De Re Militari, book 3. [1]


    More than you needed or wanted to know, eh ?
