Some good thinking by the upper echelons.

The Marine Corps has authorized MARSOC operators to carry Glock pistols, since many of the elite outfit's members prefer the popular 9mm over the custom .45 pistols the service bought them in 2012.

The Corps issued a Feb. 2 Marine Administrative Message, or MARADMIN, that green-lighted Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, units to use the Glock 19, a proven design used by many units in U.S. Special Operations Command.

The reliable, easy-to-maintain 9mm features a polymer frame and a 15-round magazine.

More reliable and double the capacity.

What's not to like in the Glock 19?

Maybe this will pave the way for the rest of the military to adopt the Glock.

It wont, and dupe, there is already a thread where no one cares about what pistol a small command in .mil is carrying.
