    That was a good report. No sensationalism by the media. The reporter did a good job of showing the basics and letting the gun store owner speak and explain the basic problem.

    It was the way a news story on guns should be. Objective, to the point and treating guns like a tool. It was like they were reporting on a problem with their squad car.

    Not a great endorsement for the M&P. Hyatt's is a pretty decent GS, lots of inventory on the racks. I always go there when visiting my old stomping grounds.

    I am far from and expert in this matter. It does seem that, over the years, bottleneck, higher pressure rounds in handguns have had case swelling/extraction issues.

    A friend of mine is a Sgt. on the NCHP and told me 6 months ago that they had been having quite a few problems with their MP handguns. As an aside they have had excellent service out of their MP-15 rifles that they are issued. My friend shot an advanced tactical course with the MP-15 and had no problems with it.

    Hmmm...

    Buyer beware on the used market.

    If they knew 6 months ago, why did they wait so long? I would be mightily perturbed if my issued gat was defective yet I was forced to trust my life to it.

    I can imagine a lot of "fanboys" are checking this for accuracy...

    If North Cakalakey operates like the state of Maryland you have another vendor in line with a sweetheart deal in place to all of the sudden discover "problems" with the current service pistol. **

    MD State Police are replacing their Berettas (made in MD) because "the magazines drop out". Beretta has been making guns longer than Maryland has been the ******* child of rampant liberalism and one party rule and their US facility is in Maryland but were unceremoniously kicked to the curb when this "disturbing" development was discovered. Never mind that this issue didn't rear it's ugly head when the SP adopted the Berettas, but I digress....


    Maryland State Police are now carrying .40 caliber Glocks. I like and own Glocks but I think this sucks.


    **Editor's note - this state is so effed up that they didn't wait for a "sweetheart" deal, it's costing $660,000.00. And the service pistols that are returned to Beretta have a stipulation that they not be sold to the civilian market.

    How about that, if you type in the word that describes a child of parents that are not married it magically appears as *******

    For those of you in West Virginia it's not enough letters to spell i-l-l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e

    As did the Indiana State Police, for the new Sig P227.

    Did they check if the officers were properly cleaning their side-arms?

    I'm calling BS.

    Guy in the GS telling the reporter that the supposed problem is the extractor failing.
    Then the trooper spokesman was saying the troopers are all trained in the tap rack method to get the pistol working again.
    How is that going to work if the extractor isn't extracting?

    Somebody is bullcrapping somebody.

    There is probably nothing wrong with these pistols.
    Could some be experiencing troubles due to some troopers running high round counts, or negligent attention to cleaning?
    Maybe.
