    No one wants to sell their 9s. Nine is cheap to shoot compared to the other service calibers.
    That's my guess

    My wife's editor is married to a federal LEO. She advised my wife to edit the G26 in a book to a G27 because, "most LEO carry a .40 now.". I paraphrased that and don't have a hard percentage, but explains the lack of 9mm trade ins if true.

    i see you posted that.but i am not looking for new priced used guns or new gun price,question was why no police trade in in 9mm as there is tons of 40 caliber and it only cost $1 to $2 more per box to shoot the 40 so i was just asking,hell i will go down to my local gun shop and get a very nice used police trade in with very little wear with workig night sights and 3 mags this week for $400 out the door ,but was just very curious

    I ordered a 26 gen 4 today so my 17 wouldn't be lonely. That's 3 Glocks in 5 months. Is that bad?

    Ahh ok. Now I understand the question better. As said, .40 has been a standard for more than a few years which most likely means a substantial amount of the police trade ins will be .40. Further the vast majority of those are probably going to be G22s and G23s as relatively few agencies issue a subcompact. Many, probably a substantial majority that allow subcompacts are purchased by the officer and not the agency. Those purchased by officers are probably less likely to be traded in. Even if an agency prohibits a previously approved pistol my guess is a significant number of guys still keep those guns; not all of course, but probably a noticeable number.

    I love my 26, just picked it up 2 weeks ago, only shot 150 rounds through it so far, but I'm heading to the range tomorrow to see how my NY1, 3.5 connector and a .25 trigger job went, by the feel of it from dry firing, it's gonna be a good one......

    Probably see quite a few .40s also because a lot of agencies are goin the .357sig for its barrier penetration characteristics. At least thats what I was told
