Beware of Falling Glock Fanbois

After a long and much-criticized search, the US Army has chosen Sig Sauer to produce its next generation of handgun, eventually replacing the current standard issue sidearm, the Beretta M9 pistol. ... Sig Sauer's P320 pistol is believed to be the model on which the new handgun will be based. The Army is seeking certain modifications that are not being made public.
I'd guess that the reaction of the Glock fanboys to this news will make the post-election reaction of the Clinton camp look low-key.


Don't worry, though. Between the inevitable contract protest and subsequent court fights, the armed forces will be fielding the Beretta M9 until 2025 at the earliest.

Almost certainly a prediction that will turn out to be true.

A bit off topic, but at my LGS I saw AR-15's at reduced prices, the first time in 8 years. The Obama panic buying may be over

Keaaukane, it wasn't for nothing that the stock prices for S&W's parent company peaked at $28 on election day and have since fallen to $20. Ruger was at $64 and is now at $51.

As far as I can tell, the other gun companies are privately-held.

The parking lot of my LGS has been overflowing for a couple of years. Now there's some room. I may get a levergun to pair with my Single-Seven.
