Glocks were rejected by the DOD prior to being allowed in for testing back in 1985 due to a lack of a “second strike capability” (a capability never actually used in doctrine immediate action procedures…) This paved the way for a SIG v. Beretta test, with Beretta winning on price.

Now, Beretta’s M9A3 has been rejected by the DOD prior to being allowed in for testing and a Glock may replace the M9.

And that’s how “logic” works in the DOD!
