While some of our customers are ammunition experts, we realize that some of you may be new to the world of shooting and its various handgun and ammunition choices. And to those of you in the latter category, we say, “Welcome!” And we’d like to provide some basic information to help you make the best handgun ammunition choices to suit your needs.
First, there are a variety of handgun ammunitions out there, and you should consider the pros and cons of each before determining which type of ammunition is right for you. Handgun ammo comes in a number of sizes, all referred to by the diameter of the bullet in inches. So, a .22 caliber bullet is 0.22 inches in diameter. In other words, the higher the number, the bigger the size.
The .22LR is one of the most popular ammunition choices for those new to shooting. They are a very small round, which makes for nearly nonexistent recoil. The minimal recoil and low expense of .22 rounds make them a great choice for inexperienced or young shooters.
Another popular ammunition choice is the .380. At this size, you’re just starting to get a little “stopping power” with your ammo, without increasing your recoil too much. Many experienced shooters say that the .380 is a great carry round, a perfect combination of power and size.
A comparable round is the 9mm, one of our most popular items. It is a versatile bullet with low recoil and an inexpensive purchase price. The 9mm and the .380 are just close enough to have driven many gun enthusiasts into one camp or the other when it comes to choosing their favorites.
These are just a few of the many sizes of ammunition available at GrabAGun.com. Scroll through our selection of handgun ammunition today – we’re sure to have what you need, and at a great price!
