Gnarly4x buy that question is why was confused and started this thread.
So I'm confused too.... so even if a barrel is roll marked 556 it may not be the right quality level to safely shoot 556? Other than say the Wylde barrel?Gnarls.
From everything I've read and been told over the years. If your barrel is stamped 556 you can shoot .223 safely. Also, if it stamped .223 Wylde it is safe to shoot both. If it just stamped .223 then stick with that. So, If your Barrel is stamped 556 shoot whatever bullet you want and feel confident in doing so. A lot of people use the numbers 223/556 interchangeably but the pressure is higher in the 556 than the 223...
Wainiha, not to get off your interesting AR thread, what are your favorite 9mm pistols and why?I've been asking questions and gathering opinions.So far I'm leaning heavily to a Glock 17.Any other thoughts or experiences?Gnarls.
Yes. I have 2 Glock 17s They seem to fire and last longer in the conditions where live. I'm no murder but if people use semi autos you better load your clips with gloves or pick up your casings. Or use a revolver.

.... Maybe we should outlaw all hammers, screwdrivers and silverware.
The G17 is a workhorse of a Pistol. I keep one in the Tundra with 1- 30 round mag and 4-5 17 rounders. It fits well in in my hands and has plenty of capacity. It is the very simple to disassemble and it will shoot most ammo you load into it. I have never had mine fail to function. I think mine is a GEN2 with the rail bit no removable backstrap. If you get one, it should do everything you have mentioned and be very reliable. If however you are looking for shear Knockdown power look at the Glock G40 10mm MOS (not for Every Day Carry). It has 6" barrel and allows you to add a holographic red dot. It's a good bit bigger in the hand due to the longer length/diameter in cartridge. The 10MM is basically a Longer .40 Caliber. It has 15 round magazine and is one of the most powerful autoloaders in a pistol. I think its is similar in ballistics to the 41 MAGNUM that is Usually only seen in revolvers. I think there is a G20 (my dad has one) that has 15 round capacity and the same barrel length as the G17. I got my G40 to try and kill a deer/pig within 50 yards, but I haven't hunted with it yet.The 26 is a subcompact double stack 9mm but will accept the G17, magazine. They make an adapter that will cover up the gap while using a 17 round mag. It does help with the extra length of the Magazine but is kind of awkward and too loose for my liking.
I really appreciate the input and Wainiha for starting a timely thread.So for those who may or may not conceal carry on your person, and assuming a G17 is the fire arm, what holster style do your prefer and why? Gnarls.
