A LEO buddy of mine is off to the sandbox and has been issued a G17. His current issue is a .40 but he was told by the DOS that 9mm is the way to go due to the availability issues. He'll be carrying an M4 and the G17 when doing his thing. Most of the military folk I know that have been over there have been issued Beretta's. However, the LEO folks are carrying a lot of Glocks. Just thought the choice of G17 was interesting.
