    I've been teaching for 20+yrs..."if you can't kill 'em, don't let 'em BREED"

    Beretta only has one plant is the US. Glock has one too.

    Has anyone ever heard of any military units using the G21? I'm just curious since many of these units used 1911s.

    I believe they were trying out Glock 22s. This is why CAG ordered Glock 22 magazines in field dark earth.

    At a recent armorers course, the instructor kept implying that the grip mods we saw with the RTF and gen4 frames were a direct result of input from an SF group that, "doesn't exist but is very opinionated." Something about extra purchase when gripped with a gloved hand...

    The military does have plenty of exclusive contracts - not everything has to be "open sourced." Usually, the things made by multiple companies are a design that comes from the gov and the companies just manufacture it. Among current weapons, the M16/M4 are the only things I can think of made by more than one company. FN, Remington, Barrett, Beretta, etc., all have exclusive contracts for weapons.

    On that same note, who knows the story behind the military trials that resulted in all the cool .45s out there, and which guns are a direct result of that trial process?

    Wasn't there a SF unit that was using G-21's a few years ago?

    Glock does have an National Stock Number and can be ordered though the normal procurement system.

    Yes it's a shot to the pelvis to drop someone. Somtimes referred to as a "mobility stop". But a famous F.B.I. Agent from many years ago named Jelly Bryce once was heard to say somethimg to the effect of "I have never shot a man in the nuts and had him stand up afterwards".
     
  12. Pelvic girdle. If you are shooting at the level some of those guys shoot, it is a good place to put someone down without killing them. They'll probably be ****ting in a bag, but they can be squeezed for intel.

    DEADEYE beat me to it.

    Personally I would rather our military use an American gun manufacture.

    Just because something is made in america does not make it the best.

    When I was in the Marine Corps during the time we were playing Policemen in SE Asia, in the Republic of Viet Nam. U.S.M.C. Force Recon had their own armory, and it was pack full of stuff line Marine did not have. The M-14 was replaced with the M-16 for Line aka Grunt Marines, but the Force Recon Teams carried the M-16, Mini 16's, M-14's, BAR's, and even a few chose to carry AK-47's and other interesting things.

    Just don’t get you panties wet if you see some Special Forces Personal carrying Unconventional Weapons, as they are Special People who have a lot more training than the want to be Keyboard Commandos on Gun Forums.

    Most of the Special Op Personal will never brag about what they did, how many kills they had, or were they were. If they have chest full of medals it is from doing a job well, being recognized for what was just doing their job, and most care little about the recognition, or the medals.

    Nothing wrong with the Glock but why pay to replace the Berettas in use when they serve perfectly fine? I really don't see any benefit to doing so.
