A noted expert in the field of supermarket loyalty cards asks “So, if the Glock really is so good, then why does no other army want them”, which aside from being totally untrue is kind of a silly way to measure the worth of a service pistol. The problem with asking why the military doesn’t carry pistol X is that the primary service weapon of a military soldier is a rifle, and the pistol is sort of an afterthought.
A much better judge of the worth of a pistol is the number of agencies that use a pistol who have selected the Glock as their issue sidearm – which in the United States would take months and a lot of space to list all the agencies that issue Glock’s to their employees. FBI, DEA, countless local law enforcement agencies issue Glock’s to their employees; it’s so great because it’s essentially a revolver. It’s simple to learn, easy to use, and for most users fits their hand pretty well.
