Default What should the military replace the Beretta M9 with?

Do you think we should replace the standard issue M9 for our troops? What would be your ideal handgun?

They will stay with the 9mm, no matter what sidearm they use, because of NATO. Only the Special Ops guys will get to pick and choose.

I say M&P because its not a Glock , no manual safety so I doubt it will ever happen . I forgot some do have manual safety.

They should stick with the M9. Don't fix it if it ain't broke, especially not on my tax payer dollars!

Well, if it works, don't fix it. The Beretta is a very capable gun and has proven itself over the course of the past few decades. It had it's issues back in the day with cracked slides but other guns had problems (M16) during initial issuance, too, and they've gone on to prove themselves reliable and are still in use today.

Also, I'd imagine it'd be a lot easier to make 9mm the 'universal' pistol cartridge of the military since it's a good medium between stopping power and recoil management. It must have been stressful teaching everyone to handle a .45 back in the day since a lot of people in the military have never even fired a gun before enlisting.

Abolsutely none. The only thing I could see people complaining about is the weight of the gun compared to a lot of popular polymer pistols today. If anything, the weight helps control the gun and if a few pounds bothers you while it's in a holster - then quit being a weenie.

Default Why not bring back the 1911? The USMC did...

Those who dislike the Beretta M9, I have some bad news for you...

http://www.berettausa.com/usarmyawar...istolcontract/

But, don't lose all hope just yet...

http://www.armytimes.com/article/201...tart-next-year

That being said, my beloved USMC brought back the tried & true 1911:

http://blogs.militarytimes.com/gears...-cqbp-pistols/

http://www.gunsandammo.com/reviews/s...pistol-review/

http://www.gunblast.com/Colt-M45CQB.htm

God bless the USMC for "sticking to their guns" and re-enlisting the venerable 1911 pistol. It has served Marines from the island fights in the Pacific during WWII, to the jungles of Vietnam, to the mountains of Afghanistan. Maybe the other US military services will scratch their heads, get their hands on a good ol' .45ACP 1911, and realize why the USMC never lost its faith in the 1911. Here's hoping! --1911ShooterPhil

Geez, I'd rather count on the Beretta than the Govt Model. It takes a good $500 worth of gunsmithing to make a Govt Model as reliable as an out-of-the-box Beretta.

Glock 17/M&P9 seems the most logical choice. very light, high capacity, ultra reliable... no contest to me.

I think its silly to bring back the 1911. I love the pistol, but its not a weapon Id want to take into war with me when there are many other .45's that hold more rounds, are lighter, and more reliable...

FN-45, our long time allies have plenty of experience with the .45 round . If it has to be 9mm I'd go with a Beretta 90-Two. We already have the mags.

1911 it's a war horse but regardless of gun, caliber should be .45 I mean if you limited to ball ammo like the military is might as well have a big hole.

Must be 9mm, manual safety/decocker, hammer fired... m9, p226, p229... I'd personally suggest a change from 92fs to 92g, decocker only. Or with some improvements like a more rounded safety, a PX4.

I think the soldier should have the option to choose between 3 handguns in 9mm

- CZ 75
- the M9
- M&P 9 FS
