    How about this for a new pistol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_Eagle

    I like the Mark VII .50 cal. I had the MK I .357. Great pistol but traded it in.

    I know the Desert Eagle is a little much, but it is a pretty cool looking pistol. Look at the size of its bullet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.50_Action_Express


    Or how about the FN P90 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_P90 I know its a submachine. It a little more than twice the length of a Beretta 92, and it is used by the Beligum Motorcycle Police. They usually wear it strapped across there backs.

    It could be used by Support troops or MPs who have strapped across there chests, or strapped to thier packs. It would give a lot more firepower than you standard pistol.

    Of course the most practical would be the Beretta. Its ammo is very widely used by many military and police forces around the world. The cost for pistol and ammo should be a lot less than your more exotic pistols. I am not a fan of it after using it overseas, but it is the standard issue of the US military and most American police forces/FBI/CIA/Customs/Postal/IRS etc etc etc.

    The pistol has been chosen as far as I know. Not sure which one but the rumour mill says the sig. Apparently there was a article in the examiner saying the same but I never saw it.

    With regard to the 3 P's, the Glock 17 should win.

    The Sig however seems to be tried and tested and if the price is right it's going to be the one.
    As for accuracy, presumably the missile carries MRVs with terminal phase sensors and guidance.

    I've heard from someone in industry that it's down to Glock, FN, HK & Walther.

    Surely a decision has been made now?

    I was told that SIG were ruled out early on in the competition on cost grounds.

    Contrary to earlier reports, I'm led to believe a decision is some way off.

    I don't know anyone who thinks that SIGs are not top-rate combat pistols. (As opposed to competition-grade pistols such as Kimber, which are better, but stupidly expensive).

    The Classic range is the one in common service in various militaries, with a steel frame and slide. They are, however, also a fair bit more expensive than most of their competitors, such as Glock.

    To counter that, they also produce the SIGPro series (One example of which I am the proud owner of). These have polymer frames, and as such are lighter and less expensive. On the downside, none of the polymer SIGs are full-sized pistols, my P2340 has about a 4" barrel, for example.

    Rumour I heard last time i was in the Curragh that it was definitly going to be the Glock17 but like most things it probly better to wait and hear for definite instead of just speculating.

    Michael Collins: You've kept us waiting 700 years. You can have your seven minutes.

    Has a decision been for the repalcement for the BAP made ?

    If it has, is the finance available?

    Priorities, for the DF budget is a replacement pistol for general service a priority?

    It should be as a matter of personal safety.

    I think the absence of a physical safety catch is offputting to some(though the Tasman Police got glock to add one for them). Perhaps this is the reason? Otherwise its cheap price makes it appealing.
