So, the jar heads go with the 19. Is it just me, or do there seem to be some factual inaccuracies in this article?

Rowjimmy,

Its only for the special operations Raiders, the Marines like all other sevices are waiting to see what comes out of the Modular Handgun competition.

It's about time. The US gummint bought 10k of them for the Iraqi police/army, many of which wound up in the hands of anti-American, anti-life goat-rapers.

The Glock 19 is a great pistol.

They (we) bought a LOT more than 10k Glocks for the Iraqis. My squad personally unloaded a shipment of 335k Glocks (G17s. And G19s) in Baghdad in 05. Same shipment hat 10k MP5s, also. IIRC the shipment came from a US distributor that started with a K.......Kaufman or something like that? I recall seeing another shipment of Glocks come in a few months later, too.

This reminded me of another Glock for Special Guys story. Around 1999 I was working The Road as an MP on Bragg. I saw a broken down civ vehicle out on Plank Red and stopped to assist. Turns out it was 3 guys with ponytails and beards and they asked if I minded hanging out while they waited for their "work tow truck" to come grab them. We BSd for a bit and when their buddies showed up, I helped them move some boxes from one trunk to the other. They had two cases of M67 fragmentation grenades in the trunk. LOL. they also had a big box with probably 100 loose Glock mags. I commented must be nice to have all those mags. (This was during the AWB and g19 mags were going for $50+. Dude asks if I owned a 19? I said yeah. He reached in and handed me like 20 mags and said that's for stopping to check on us. I asked if I can have any frags instead. LOL

No frogs for me that day, but a few months later I was running an M203 range (right outside their compound gate) and one of the same guys stopped by and gave me a case of 40mm HEDP saying"Here, MP. These will make for a funner range" and then drove off. Lol
