Military Sidearms: Overhyped and Overrated By Kyle Eggimann – Luckygunner
There’s something really special about the way we perceive military service pistols. They tend to take on such strong identities and somehow epitomize the conflicts they were used in. One look at a German Luger or an old M1911 and you can’t help but think back to the World Wars. The funny thing about this is that even though we so strongly equate military pistols to specific conflicts and time periods, they see incredibly limited use compared to just about everything else.
It seems like every couple of years there’s a big fuss over what the U.S. military should get to replace their current service pistols. Lately the hot topics have been Beretta’s failure to get a contract for their M9A3, and the adoption of a Colt Rail Gun derivative called the M45A1 CQBP (Close Quarters Battle Pistol) by the Marines to replace their aging MEU(SOC) 1911’s.
