Reply to "FBI 9mm Shift"

Re the FBI's 10mm and .40s&w loads. They never "down loaded" anything. Their "ideal" round was spec'd as a .40 180 grain JHP pushed at approximately 1000 fps, just under, actually, and that's what they got. Their loads were and remain basically the same loads, 180 grains pushed at approximately 1000 fps. If anything, their loads have evolved to be marginally faster.

 

DHS' largest agency, ICE, is apparently considering a change of pistols and possibly caliber. And as with the FBI, as they go others will follow. They conducted an agency wide survey that can apparently be summed up as "we want Glock 19s or 23s." They currently issue Sig 229s in .40s&w but allow personally owned pistols to include Glock 17s and 26s; the G26s are apparently very popular. They are .40s&w cheerleaders, though, so it will be interesting to see what they choose and how the decision is spun.

 

I settled on 9mm for my duty pistols myself as soon as it was an option for all the reason stated throughout the thread. I get the distinct idea that many of my peers think that I might as well be throwing rocks. The flack I get...

God, country, family
