Will GLOCK be the next pistol our troops are carrying?

An interesting article from Gunner's Journal today sure indicates that might be the case....

Man, this reported Email from a SPECOP warrior sure won't sit well with the 1911 crowd...

I read a few weeks ago that the Army was looking to replace the M9, kind of hard to believe but not so hard that I would discount it happening. Its been no secret that there is a general dislike of the 9mm round in the ranks.  I again argue that the use of round nosed ammo as dictated by the Hague convention causes the effects of the round to be diminished in combat.  Never the less, thousands of people have been killed by 9mm rounds so they do work, so to speak.

Moving to the .40 round as the article indicates may be a good move, I sure like the G22 I had and the .40 is nothing to sneeze at!
