SEALs get what they request at the armory with very little bureaucratic BS. And maintain the necessary signatures right up the command chain to assure that happens without desk-jockey interference. As a general rule, most folks that are inordinately good at their job get any tool they require. SEALs are among the world's best. If the U.S. Navy has any blank checks left, the SEAL Teams should always (IMHO) have a fist full. That's enough of an endorsement right there for me to go get a PPS.
