    i was in boracay over the long weekend.

    i just happened to notice that besides being tanned and wearing shorts as official uniforms, the cops on the beach carry glocks. :)

    Thanks for the interesting info.

    Any pictures of the LEOs with Glocks? Did you ask if they were carrying Glocks because of their reputed corrosion resistance?

    the more important question (not) to ask is if they know how to use their glocks...

    yung mga glocks ba na yun standard issue ng police sa boracay or yung mga police dun, they own the glocks. alam ko kasi mga oilice dito sa manila, yung mga service carries nila, ay kanila. kaya ibaiba yung mga guns nag police dito.

    Glocks would be the appropriate firearm to carry in a place like Boracay, where there's high humidity and salt spray. Just like the Miami PD. If memory serves me right, they were the first LEO to use Glocks (Glock 17).

    When we went to NYC in 2003, I saw lots of NYPD officers with stainless S&W 9mm pistols. I think the NYPD has a list of approved pistols for carry. NYPD officers guarding the entrance of Holland Tunnel had MP5s and M4s with S&W 9mms as their sidearms.

    I read an article in a magazine while I was still in the Philippines. According to the article, Glock had to repair or upgrade Glock 19s of the NYPD because of a problem with the pistol. This happened without much fanfare, and Glock had to send a mobile gunshop (18 wheeeler tractor trailer) to deal with the problem.
     
  10. Sir,I think it was the LAPD who had problems with their Glocks. It was thanks giving last year(2005) when we went to L.A. california to visit the family. On our way back to Kansas city on board the plane I saw the story on the front page of "The L.A. Times." I posted that story in this forum but I dont know how to link it up here.:)

    Glock 19s issued to the NYPD had problems, too. Glock 21s with the LAPD had problems as well. It took a while for Glock's problems to come out. That's probably one reason why Glock prices in the Philippines went down.

    Here's some info regarding NYPD's problem with their G19s. AFAIK, 6 parts have to be upgraded.

    I believe that Glock has throughly researched and tested their first pistol before releasing it to the market; as opposed to the subsequent Glock models that came out almost one after the other following the instant success of the Glock 17.

    I shall post some pics of the match. Go to uspsa.org Area 2 then look for 22 Rimfire match. The courses of fire are posted.
    I do not have a 22 rifle, but the match director would loan me his. For the pistol stage, I have my own SW AS22. The ammo is WW HV.
