As we know, folks who have never fired a handgun are buying them now.

One of these people asked me a question today: "Will SIG Sauer ammunition work in a Glock?"

Hey, at least he/she asked rather than assuming (one way or another). Wink

I would have played him on the line a little and told him the Glock would work better because of it. Big Grin I would have eventually told him it wouldn't matter of course.

Reminds me of the time that I asked the counter guy for a 40 watt bulb for a refrigerator.

He gave me a GE bulb and I kept a straight face when I asked whether the GE bulb would work properly in a Westinghouse refrigerator.

you have to admit -- ammunition to the 'non-shooter' is really confusing

.223 / 5.56 confusion

inches vs. metric references...

9mm / 9mm Para / 9mm Luger / 9mm Kurz

.45 ACP / .45 LC / .45 Auto

.38 SPL / .38 S&W / .38 Super

you can shoot a .38 in a .357 but not the reverse...

12 ga : 2 3/4 vs. 3 in vs 3 1/2 in shells ... not even getting into shot size / weight, etc

some of its just labeling ... but some is actual compatability.

I remember being in a Cabela's in Nebraska right prior to deer season. The clerk was trying to very hard to help a customer who either had a 300 Savage or 300 Winchester.

I purchased a brick of 22 LR at our Walmart in town a few years ago. They check everyone’s ID at check out. I was 62 with grey hair. The Clerk asked me if it was for a pistol. Wife was with me. I couldn’t help myself and responded it was for a rifle and pointed to the box where it said 22 Long Rifle. Big Grin

I had a friend a few years back who was very confused about why he needed .38 Special ammo for his S&W revolver, and not .38 S&W ammo.

And I know another guy who, as the Obama ammo drought was going into full swing, bragged about how he was able to find 9mm ammo at a sporting goods store, and so he bought all 10 boxes they had. A couple days later he sheepishly asked if I had any Makarovs, and might I be willing to trade him 10 boxes of 9mm Para for his 10 boxes of 9mm Makarov.

I was at a gun range, that was upstairs and had a large store downstairs. A really old guy comes in, carrying a box, and opens it and is pointing a loaded S+W snub nose K frame around telling the guy behind the counter that he needs a box of ammo for it......well you could hear people shooting at the range and the old guy points to the door leading to the staircase for the range and tells the gun store employee that someone keeps knocking on his door and he should open it.......

Only if the gun 'takes Glock mags'. Big Grin
