More M9s for the Army?

I would expect that to be the outcome. For the Army's gold-plated new modular handgun contract is now running north of a billion, with the cost of the guns to be over a grand apiece.

Expect some sharp-eyed Senator to figure out that the Army could just buy more M9s for less than half the cost per unit. When that happens, the "modular handgun project" will be as dead as most of the Army's other procurement programs in recent memory.

I've had a Taurus PT92 for a couple of decades. (Beretta built the Brazilian production line and then sold it to Taurus.) I have nothing bad to say about it.

I also have an old Taurus PT92 that never fails. What is 'modular'? And why is it expensive and something we need?

At a grand a pistol or more, no, we don't need it. They probably do need to buy new guns, but the boyos at Ft. Fumble are going to screw the pooch, yet again.
