Guys, just a few questions on US-issue (and some non-issue) sidearms:
- AFAIK, the three sidearms normally carried by US forces are the Colt M1911 (some old-timers), the M9 Beretta (92FS) and the compact M11 Sig (Sig P228). Are there any other handguns -officially- recognized or labelled in the US inventory or is this it?
- Other than Special Forces units, are there any other Army/Navy/Marine units that are lax about what kind of sidearm their men are allowed to carry?
- I know most standard infantry troops don't carry sidearms, but is this because of official structure or can line troops (Corporals and the like) carry sidearms if they can?
- What forces in the world currently adopt the Walther P99 pistol--with the LAM module?
Just asking a few, Wavehawk.
