    Sorry, about the spelling and it’s not RDF bashing just interested what the feed back would be.

    I think that the issue of kit should probably be another thread

    hope the man periods improve..
    Time for another break I think......

    curious..

    The Defence Forces picked the pistol that came last in the poll, got no votes at all, yet comments so far are all pretty positive. Does that mean that there wasn't much difference between those pistols, so it didn't really matter which was picked? Or is everyone just being philosophical and trying to make the best of what they've been given? Or maybe the people who voted in the poll are a different group from the people who actually get to use the pistol?

    Just wondering...

    The USP was added as a poll option after the decision was announced.

    There were other front runners but we also have to continue our policy of media interference.

    The poll was correct for the competition held at the time the poll was started (4 years ago!), where the 226 was selected.

    The USP was selected in a more recent competition, where different pistols were entered, with different selection criteria. The original selection was shelved to cut costs in the DF budget.

    With 50,000 men getting killed a week, who's going to miss a pigeon?

    Guns don't kill people, bullets kill people.
