hell why don't we just give everyone uzi's as side arms then they have 32 rounds and a fully auto funtion take out aiming just hold low and squeeze.

Actually the MP7 not that bad it a little big for a pistol but on full auto you can shoot it fine with one hand. Also the round isn't that bad being "high velocity". Then again sig makes some pretty nice pistols.

As I said, if- in combat- you are reaching for your sidearm you are in deep trouble already. Capacity matters. Its not everything, but it should be considered, especially in a military firearm that will certainly be fielded in combat. Its just good policy to look at the whole picture. Just my view.

I completely understand tht, when u suppress fire ur intention is to throw lead down range toward the enemie to make them keep cover so u can get to a better position. A higher cap mag gives u a little more time, or maybe u have a 16rd mag and u didnt need but 10 rounds to suppress and move. U still have 6 rounds left to ten ring sum folks

its a statistical proven fact that accuracy increased upon army's adoption of the m9. couple that with more tha double the shot capacity and ammo weight,i think they made a good move.

for all the army's specs and requirements, the m9, beats others hands down

I REALLY hope this happens and I REALLY hope were able to purchase all those mil surp M9's.

Personally, I'd have a ball rebuilding and refinishing a couple of those, especially if I could get them cheap.

TACK

All of this is real fun to read and speculate on, but my vote goes to
the M9 sticking around for quite a while. I know for a fact that the
M9 will remain the issued sidearm for at least the next 16 years.
I paid a very strange lady $10 to read the M9's future. She lived
in a small trailer and had a round table covered with a red cloth,
while in the center of the table was this round ball. She looked into
it and told me the M9 would be around another 16 years. This should
solve the guessing game for once and for all.

My mom doesn't know $#!+.

But the red tablecloth and crystal ball are an impressive display.

Thanks, trex, she used the 10$ to have her teeth polished...

There you go. This man has inside information, so I don't see what's left to ponder.
