A pistol to carry choice


#61

I shot a luger (clone/replica or whatever you want to call it) and it was pretty disapointing, tbh. The Hi Power is definitely a better pistol, I just thought it was the first 9mm. Wasnt “Wonder 9” coined for fantastic plastic 9mms? Too much terminology to keep up with in the firearms world. I feel like an old geezer, sometimes.


#62

silly guys, wonder 9 refers to wondering why you don’t have a 10mm


#63

10mm is nice too, Wasnt the Bren10 called the “Wonder 10” or something like that?


#64


Definition of wonder 9. Just so we’er On the same page.


#65

Makes sense, looks like it goes back before the fantastic plastic phrase. That definition kind of disqualifies the Hi Power too, dosnt it?


#66

Not really. I think that the hi power was the first. There is always exceptions to the rule.


#67

This is why I said that about the hi power


#68

just because the Browning HiPower predates the definition by 50 odd years and was the only pistol with a factory (staggered box) magazine up until then doesn’t eliminate from being the first wonder 9


#69

The definition also says it has to be a double action at least on the first pull , right?


#70

simple - a CZ75 and if you squint just right you would swear it was HiPower. That is just one person “opinion” or term.

Makes sense , I was wondering about that. :+1:

guess I am not really part of the crowd then. My carry pistol is a glock 42. It has plus 2 mags and I am good with the little thing. I also carry critical defense in it as this seems to be what it prefers.
