DONALD SENSING is back from vacation, and is posting on a number of topics including the worthlessness of the Army’s 9mm pistol. I’ve fired it, and I wasn’t impressed — it was heavy, for a 9mm, but somehow felt cheap. (Of course, I mostly shoot Sigs, so everything feels cheap by comparison. But even a Glock is MUCH better.) Apparently the critique goes much deeper than that.

Stopping power would be much greater, of course, using hollow-point ammunition but that’s a no-no for the military.
