A few years down the road this or that LEA will move to something else based on "objective" testing. Does it mean that their previous choice is not invalid? See my point, it matters little why one LEA or another chooses a service round. Look at the "objective" testing that now has the US mil carrying a Beretta 9mm?
I think that might have been a carry-over of the McNamara Rule that it was "better to wound than kill" that led to the replacement of the 7.62 mm with the 5.56 mm. In any event, after they force issued us the M9 Barettas, the joke was, "If you have to shoot someone with that thing, make sure you shoot him a lot".
