    Read an article about the Greek counter-terror forces that stated they use Glock 21's and showed them training with them. I was kind of surprised because I think of the Glock 21 and the .45 acp round as American.

    I see you read SWAT. :)


    While most Europeans use the 9mm, not everyone does.

    The French used to, and still do I think in limited role, use the .357 Magnum as the main issue pistol for their counterterrorist units in the Manurhin MR73 revolver. Most people think of the .357 as a US round as well, but the French really love it.

    That was a pretty well-written article. I am really impressed with Hansen and Son as their magazine progresses...plus, it has more pages and cooler paper:)
