That's too bad. I own 4 9mm's and one .45. If I had to choose purely on the round it would be the .45 all day every day.
Got a friend that works an FN in columbia. They just got a deal & jumped on it I would! That is alot of savings + they can get more range time cheeper. So they can bust them bad guys!
Good for them!
Brand new quality firearms at a great cost savings to the tax payers, higher capacity, smaller grip to suit everyone, less muzzle flip = improved accuracy and with proper selection of duty ammo in 9mm the terminal effects on BG's is just as effective as the .45 (or any other service caliber).
It's gratifying to see a local tv channel avoiding politically-correct propaganda.
Bottom line; the Columbia PD went with 9mm because of capacity and cost. I won't disagree because 9mm does put felons down.
The 9mm will serve them well.
I personal prefer the 9mm for self defense /competition and have never liked the .45acp.

Well, I'm sure many factors went into the decision, but this thread is kind of saying they prefer the 9mm over the .45ACP. One main thing was to support a local company. More capacity was another, however they could have gotten G21SF's, also cost, Sig P220's are pricey. They just decided the overall package was worth it, and honestly, I would like to see our police using 100% made in USA guns, uniforms, and equipment.
Agreed. Good reporting in that video.
Just out of curiosity, anyone know which .45 ACP pistol is being replaced?
Sig P220 I think.
The 45 was a Sig from what I read.
I would say "Columbia-based business" did play a small part in the selection, although it is not as if an FNH plant, even if located in Columbia, is funneling it's money back into the state of SC.
That aside, I personally would have preferred to see them adopt the S&W M&P 45.
Wise decision...."smart" move....But..Just in case...If they need "more" `Real" emergency fire power.... they can go to Big brother the 10mm
The 10mm would cause a reaction that would melt the Ozone.
Not reliably. After the fiasco the FBI had with the 9mm, they now carry Glock 22 .40
They didn't have Gold Dots back in '86.
BS, this is 2012 not 1986, put that BS where it belongs.
The Ozone heck!
It would split the planet in two! What we really need to fear is Iran getting a 10mm. Then we would really have something to worry about.
Too bad the Israelis didn't chamber the Desert Eagle in 10mm, they could have had a first strike capability...
Cheaper = .45 to 9mm + Less training = more capacity needed.
Ten bucks says they don't hit the range anymore with the 9's than they did with the .45 Sig's.
Most of the cops I know around here shoot once or twice per year and that's when they qualify.
Good thing they have all those rounds now. They can shoot a bunch of bystanders along with the perp.
The heck with marksmanship, I guess it's spray and pray....
Why does everybody assume that the advancements in bullet technology only apply to 9mm? Guess what, bro - all those awesome hollow points they now have in 9mm they also have in .45 ACP. Sorry.
