    So, here I am stuck watching AFN Korea (for those who dont know Armed Forces Network) and this little news blurp comes on with them talkin about the Haiti relief effort and the Phoenix Raven program. And then I could a sworn I saw it.......an American military member cambering a round in a GLOCK?!?!?!:wow::faint: Can it be the US Military is secretly switching sidearms or is it probably equivilant to special areas of the military carrying what they want?:dunno:

    ooohhh soju:faint: spent many a night outside the gates of osan mainly on "Hash Runs" (for those that don't know, it's a drinking thing and there really wasn't much running involved mostly walking, more walking, then staggering til you get to the down-down then it's a keg party). Probably what you saw was a figment of your imagination, too much soju. :supergrin:

    thank you for your service.

    MPI at Ft polk was carrying Sigs back in 02

    Its a unit procured item. I've seen EOD units in Iraq with H&K USP 45's. If your unit has the money, and they're willing to order it, they can have them AFAIK. I've also seen CID Agents with Glock 19's. I also wanna add that the Division Commander's PSD carried H&K MP5K's in Iraq, which I have SEEN with my own eyes.
