Birmingham Police Dept
Issue the S&W M&P....just found this out today. I saw a new cop (at least he looked rather fresh from the Academy) with a gun that did not look glockish in his holster. I asked and he said it was issued.
I did not want to start any kind of glock v m&p thread, it was just something I though was kind of neat and there are few ppl around me that would find this interesting. So I decided to share here....in the off topic part of the forum...where people like to talk about guns....
Anywho, have a good one
So I guess the marketing is working.
"We have a Military & Police model, Glock doesn't!"
There are several PD's large and small that are issuing the M&P. Smith makes them a hard to refuse deal.
My local county police & SO duty issue is a .40 M&P. I'm sure many of the local PDs also follow suit.
