Heck, calling a cartridge a caliber is enough to get some folks here yelling and screaming.
Serious question, if I say "that is a 9mm cartridge ", is that factually incorrect?


Or am I missing what ya'll are saying?

Technically the cartridge is 9x19mm Parabellum. The caliber is 9mm. Caliber being the internal diameter of the bore of the barrel.

Caliber is often used interchangeably with cartridge.

It really bothers some people if you use the terms improperly. And many do, including many vendors.

Response has been very positive as a result of the disappointment in Abbott. I don't get the piling on to Abbott. What is he supposed to do about covid? Choices are 'just let the sick folks die'?, shut the economy down for a year? Wear masks? You choose one and quit complaining!
You can ONLY get it if someone who has it blows it into your face. Masks don't work? Take a big drag and blow into a folded tissue - then look at the inside stain. Sure they leak but breath is deposited on your face skin and cloth of the mask - long path for absorption. Bars and raves are good places to get it. Walking in the neighborhood? Nope. Public transportation? Yup.
