Then Berettas were bought while the Smiths were echanged. Then in 2003 or so Glocks were bought. It took us until 2010 or so until we went all Glock. The longer we wait to sell off guns the less they are worth when sold. That is why we shoot to replace them after 10 years, often it is a few years after that.
