    Secret Service goes Glock 19 mos

    Seems like a sound choice. I probably would have pushed for an American manufacturer like S&W but that the Glock is a safe choice canít be denied.

    They will probably have to be manufactured in Smyrna.

    Not that it comes as a surprise to the folks on here who are much more involved in the industry than I am, but pistol red dots are very quickly becoming the norm for LE, much faster than I thought Departments would gravitate to them. One indicator is that my little college PD (26 officers) is in the testing process and is setting up to replace all of our Gen 4 G19/G17 pistols with with G19 MOS and G17M MOS models with red dots for any officer that wants one.

    How I know Hell has really frozen over is that the Sheriff's Department I retired from last year is in the testing process, and this is the department that held on to Class A's and brown leather duty gear in the jail for last 25 years.

    When was the last time the SS carried American made handguns? The 1950s? (I think that's about when the SS went to BHPs, although I suppose there may have been revolvers in use after that, but I don't know.)
    " Political tags ó such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] ó are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    So when are you getting one so you can be like the cool guys.

    Btw, i went behind the enemy line yesterday to swap out two old broken gen 1 mags. I was afraid lightning was going to strike.

    I've had one for a while. I usually keep some Glock around to keep in practice. Still not a big fan.

    Not to stray too off-topic, but I am actually surprised we have not seen a 2.0 CORE yet

    It's real.

    Apparently someone in CA was able to buy one. I'm assuming that S&W is fulfilling orders from agencies that want to go through a dot program but already have M&Ps.
