The End of an Era for the NYPD

According to Glock Talk, the NYPD has announced that revolvers will no longer be authorized as duty weapons, as of August 31, 2018. One of the threads posted a blurry and unreadable photo of a memo.

UPDATE: Photo replaced with a clearer copy from the Smith & Wesson Forum:


Speculation is that there are so few coppers left on the NYPD who are carrying revolvers that the Department doesn't want to have to continue maintaining them, buying ammunition and running qualifications for them.

I suspect that there are few old cops that management wants to push out and they believe that those old guys will retire rather than switch to a bottom-feeder.

Better use of the NYPD’s time would be teaching their Officers that raping a detainee will be frowned upon if fellow Officers attempts to intimidate the victim and mother fail and the DNA test is positive for them.
