The Latin part of 9x19mm Parabellum’s name, Parabellum, comes from the old saying “Si vis pacem para bellum” which translates as “If you seek peace, prepare for war.” Although the name was given to the cartridge because it was, at the time, the motto of the Deustche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken (DWM), which was the Russian group responsible for manufacturing the first run of 9mm back in 1902, it continues to have meaning today. There’s more than one way to look at that phrase, and this is just one. Gun owners who carry firearms for personal protection don’t go out looking for trouble; quite the opposite. The hope is for a peaceful passage, but because the reality is that the world is full of people who would gladly visit violence upon us, we prepare for war, and hope we never have to use that preparation.
Part of preparing to defend yourself is training, and that training requires a lot of ammunition. Although many gun owners use target rounds for that training, it’s also a good idea to train using actual defense rounds whenever possible. Defense rounds produce more power than target rounds, and the only way to master the increased recoil and muzzle flip is through hands-on training. With that in mind you can see how a case of defense ammunition like this one from Federal is useful for more than just setting it aside for later use; it’s useful right now for realistic training, and that training just might save your life someday.
These 9mm rounds weigh 147 grain, making them rather heavy for the cartridge size. Greater weight means a more forceful impact, and that’s just what you want from a defense round. These are Jacketed Hollow Points (JHPs) so they deliver controlled expansion immediately upon impact, penetrating more deeply than standard HPs and creating a deep, devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and muzzle energy of 326 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense and can also be used for training. There are 1000 rounds in this case of ammunition, which is manufactured at Federal’s plant in Anoka, Minnesota. If you’re serious about self-defense, it’s time to get serious about training. Order now, and train like your life depends on it; someday it might.
