Any idea how many revolvers are left?
As for setting a drop dead date, no idea why nothing like this was done. As for enticement to "upgrade" to a semiauto, the agency provided free semiautos to everyone willing to convert. The individual LEO just had to purchase holster and mag pouch. And all who converted got to keep their wheelguns.
Have no idea how many revolvers are left but I know getting a free box or two of Speer .38 ammo out of the range guys is getting harder and harder. So they must be keeping a closer eye on .38 ammo inventory and hoping they don't have to re-order (or re-order as much) anymore.
There are at least two sides to every story. I just heard yours and, indeed, you appear to be the victim. But I can't stop wondering what the other side has to say.
Oh, g-d, if only LEOs can be indemnified from willfully ignoring the stupid!
