An intriguing article appeared at the American Thinker today entitled Why is the FBI Spending $80 million on a New Gun? by Jonathon F. Keiler. But I haven't been able to find it at any other gun site I frequent. Does anyone know if this is true? Spending $80 million for yet another 9mm pistol purchase seems over the top. It also seems that a number of FBI special agents do not need to be armed most of the time, as there work seldom takes them into harms way. Also, if it is a 9mm they now want (again) they can buy Glocks for, what...$450 a piece? That would only be $4.5 million.
Go read the article, but note that I am taking it with a grain of salt until I can confirm.
