Re: 9MM largo
Isn't it, ballistically, pretty close to a 38 Super? Maybe that's it. Then there's the "it ain't American". I think the only reason the 9mm made it here was because of all the war-trophy guns brought back by soldiers. That's also why 8mm Mauser made it.
If there had been a foreign military pistol in 9mm Largo, that our boys could have brought back, in mass quantities, from "over there", it might have worked.
