“Over the next year, the police department in South Dakota’s largest city will be going from .40-caliber Glocks to 9 mm pistols,” ksfy.com reports. “[Sioux Falls] Chief Doug Barthel said the pistols have better accuracy and the ability to carry two more bullets than the Glocks.” Well, almost. More police are more accurate with less recoil shooting a nine than a for-tay. Otherwise, a Glock is a Glock is a Glock. Especially at bad breath distances. As for the round count, what’s two bullets between friends? Not to go all Leghornian, but I reckon the key variable for .40 accuracy is hand size. FWIW, the SFPD told TTAG that the department doesn’t have a minimum height requirement. Twenty-five of Sioux Falls PD’s 230 sworn officers are women. For comparison, Sioux City (not Falls) has 124 sworn officers, all of whom can choose their own carry firearm and caliber. Which is just as it should be, really.
