Back in 2012, there was approx 77,000 U.S. troops. But as of May 2018, there's only approx 8500 U.S. troops. That may be the reason you're not getting many responses.I served in Afghanistan back in 2012 and since then a lot of new gear has been developed to eliminate the headaches me and my team members had to go through. What "headaches" are the norm in deployment these days when it comes to equipment/gear?
Why would you say that? IMO the only thing in the arms room less important than the pistols are the bayonets. If the rifles are bad that would be a problem.I served in Afghanistan back in 2012 and since then a lot of new gear has been developed to eliminate the headaches me and my team members had to go through.

I don't own one and have never fired one. If the Army did not pick the best pistol I want an investigation of financial records of all the officers involved including their supervisors. I still don't think a pistol is anywhere near the most important thing in an Army unit and I would never call Massad Ayoob a fanboy.I don't know who works at Personal defense World but Army Times and Other DOD pubs have openly admitted the teething problems with fielding. I'm talking Several thousand rounds at ranges across major Divison Bases not several Hundred Rounds from a Fanboy at Personal defense world. With 6 actual year long combat tours on 3 continents I'll take first hand weapons in facts from people who have done and do. Thank you very much!!!!!!!! I did 400 rounds in one class!! Notice I never said "bad gun" I said over engineered for a combat pistol good range gun or police side Arm but intricate upper slide constructs will not survive GI Joe and DESERT.
