    Should have been picked back in 1995/96. Never cared for the Berreta 96 that was picked but I did like the HK P2000 that came later. Never been a Glock fan but if agents can shoot better then it's a good thing since some of their marksmanship has really gone down IMO.

    I've always been fond of my stainless 96 betetta. Its heavy and dosent hold but 10+1 rounds but it performs reliably. I prefer the 40 Smith to the 9mm too though so im an oddity I guess

    Did they adopt the 19, 17, 23 or the 22?

    This is copied and pasted from an article I read on this.

    "The award incorporates several models, all featuring GLOCK’s newest 5th generation technology. Included are the GLOCK 19 Gen5 MOS, the GLOCK 26 Gen5, and the newly developed GLOCK 47."

    So two concealed carry guns and a compact. What are they thinking?

    I have over half a dozen Glocks, and if I'm going to an area where I really fear trouble I have a full sized on me. Usually a G22 with +P Gold dots. CBP is doing their agents a disservice if those are the only three models they're deploying.

    Other than that, great pistols. A true tool.

    I was a range master for USCS (Customs) from about 95-2004. We had the CS-1 (686 4") called the Customs Service 1. Then to S&W for about 8 months when their slides started falling apart. Next was indeed GLOCK's. Then the H&K USP40's, then the Beretta after we merged in Homeland Security. (INS was using the Beretta 92 then). Each change was for about 21,000 weapons after the merge with INS. USCS/CBP wasted more money than anyone when it came to arming it's officers. OI (ICE now) had Steyer Augs with 3 rd bursts. Over penetration with the .223/5.56 ammo. So they went away and we bought H&K MP5's for the agents. Not enough stopping power so we went to Colt M-4's. Back to the 5.56. Now each of these 2700 guns cost us about 6,700 each (Volume discounts?)

    After they suffer a rash of NDs (Negligent Discharges) and have to pension off a few people, they'll switch to a handgun with a thumb safety.

    Berreta 96D Brigadier, not the 92, I was an instructor doing transition training from revolvers to the 96. Never liked that gun and still don't know how it got picked over the Glock way back when.

    MP5s were never for the line agents, mostly special ops although I did carry one back when the DEA agent got kidnapped and security was increased at the ports of entry.

    Negligent Discharge ? Well ; you got the first word correct , anyway . My training was to never place your finger inside the guard , or touch the trigger until I had identified my target , and cleared my field of fire . Do they teach it differently now ?

    Golf clubs , Parachutes , Airplanes , Motorcycles , and Firearms !

    NOTE: it is physically impossible to have an unintentional (there is NO SUCH THING AS AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE) discharge with a Glock. Someone has to pull the trigger, and factory models are at about a 6lb pull.

    I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong but glocks have three safeties blade on the trigger two passive safeties built in to what is known as a safe action

    You can keep your Glocks. I was safety manager at Quantico where the FBI Academy is and the FBI had 4 NDs in 30 days, all with wounds. One was the Director of the HRT! The Base Commander sent a letter to the Director FBI telling them they needed a safety standown after that month. But then when I was the safety manager at Fort AP Hill, where an FBI sniper shot and killed one of their agents in an exercise. Might just be the FBI. :)

    I was a range master from 91 to 2004 with USCS/CBP. We had Glocks before. They work but for some unknown reason the weenies in DC kept changing their collective minds on issue weapons. It will change again in about 3 years at end of life cycle.

    It is impossible for a Glock to go off without the user squeezing the trigger end of story
