Thanks very much!

No doubt they were and rightly so but at least they get to shoot theirs on a fairly regular basis. I've also read today that our Armed Forces will be issued with Glock 17s to replace the Browning Hi-Powers we've had for over 50 years. I learned on a Mark 1 in the 60s, without ambi-dextrous controls. Which is why, as a lefty, I learned to fire with both hands. Ha! At my present stage, I'm not even sure any more which bit of the gun I should be holding.
