About the Cartridge

Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.

Accurate backup gun
By thewoods868 on 13 Jan 2018
The trigger makes it both accurate and fast on follow up shots. I have to watch how I hold it or my thumb will hit magazine release during recoil causing stoppages. Not the guns fault though.

Over-rated firearm
By Pocketgunner on 04 Sep 2018
They are very reliable until they are not. Meaning they do not hold up well to any high volume. Very reliable, but the aluminum chassis should have never been used. Cracked grips frames, split rails etc. Stainless Steel chassis on a small pocket gun makes a world of difference. They also are harder to handle than other better made guns in the same class. Notorious "High Five Slap" and heavy muzzle flip.
