    The first of 1,670 Gen4 G37's and 1,670 G39's have been delivered to the FHP. Training of FHP trainers starts real soon. They will use Safariland Holsters & Mag Carriers, Surefire and Streamlight lights. Troopers are being given the opportunity to buy back their service .40 caliber Beretta's and G27's.

    Bravo, Florida!:wavey:

    Probably as soon as Glock completes the order to the FHP. I'm guessing 4 weeks.

    I'm anticipating the Gen4 models of all Glocks, but my buddy has G4 G17 and I'm not knocked over with it. I don't think that it will make me replace my G3 G23.

    Glock will soon be releasing a lighter dual recoil spring assembly for the Gen4 G17. I like the one mine came with.

    A few shooters have experienced problems with the Gen4 G17 due to it's stiff recoil spring and cheap, underpowered ammo. There have been no problems with the Gen4 G22 and I expect zero problems with the Gen4 GAP's.

    Good for them! I'm sure they'll be glad to see the Berettas go. I know I'll be glad to turn mine in. :steamed::rofl:

    It must be awesome to work for an agency like FHP that issues a BUG. At my place we can't even use dept ammo to qual with our BUGs, have to supply your own.

    Great setup FHP!

    FHP does not issue a BUG. Troopers carry their own, after approval and qualification. The 39's will be carried by BOI personnel. Alot carry the 27, and I know one who carries a 29.

    Does anyone know what load FHP is going to use? That is the real question.

    No pics yet? :crying:

    Anyone know if the slide thickness will be/is narrower, more in line with the G26/17/19, compared to the Gen3s? IMO thats the only draw back to GAPs.
