    If it were me calling the shots it would be a G21. The .45 ACP served the U.S. Army very well in the past.

    It is a requirement/preference for general military personnel...they like manual safeties for the regulars. As long as Colt doesn't get in on the contract.

    That's not going to happen as long as we remain part of NATO.

    Unless the USA is going its own way it will have to stay with the 9mm for NATO compatibility. Also, with the cost of metals going up the .45 ammo would be more expensive then 9mm.

    That story is from 29-AUG-2011, and nothing since then has happened that would suggest the M9 is going to be replaced. More M9s have been purchased, and the M9A1 with the rail has been put into service with the USMC.

    While I agree the M9 and M9A1 are not the best pistols for our troops, the DoD has a lot more important things, such as the mandatory budget cuts, to address than a new pistol. There is also an ongoing acquisition of something like 450,000 pistols that are scheduled to be all delivered by 2014.

    Fixed it for you: It seems the bean counters are more worried about saving money than protecting our troops by keeping that pos M9:steamed:
