Remember that Question of the Day asking what handgun could/should replace the Beretta M9 for our troops? Fuhgeddaboutit. Beretta’s Facebook page reveals that “The US Army just confirmed that the Beretta M9 is going to be their official sidearm for the next five years, with an order of up to 100,000 new guns.” Fans of the .45, recently purchased by Marine special forces, are not happy. As TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia pointed out in the previous post, there’s a more important question than gun or even caliber: why U.S. soldiers can’t use hollow-points? On the Facebook page, the company stresses that “International rules of engagement disallow the use of hollow point.” That would be the Hague Convention of 1899, that worked so well in World War I.
