Haha I was confused. In 13 years I haven't seen Marines carry anything but berettas in uniform. That's experience with the air wing, infantry, recon and MARSOC. I'm a communications tech, so I wont kid you, I was never in recon or MARSOC, but I was in an infantry unit for many years and you make friends who end up in those places and then you see them around in country. Not saying they don't carry anything but berettas, just that if they do, they aren't widely distributed, so you can't generalize like that.

My uncle is a retired ICE agent with Homeland Security. They gave up on the SIG and went back to Glock before he retired.
Everyone was so used to Glock that they just couldn't get used to the SIG.

Interesting...not what it says here. http://www.shootingtimes.com/2011/01/03/handgun_reviews_sig070606/

One reason stated:

Shooting Times
Department Of Homeland Security Chooses SIG’s DAK-by Dick Metcalf, January 3, 2011

.....the ubiquitous “safe action” Glock and the similar S&W Sigma are striker-fired and have very short trigger pulls (with an imbedded safety) that are lighter than the DAK trigger pull, but in the event of a misfire these designs require a manual rearward movement of the slide to “preload” the striker-fired mechanism before the trigger can be pulled again.

Well, I would believe him (my uncle) before I would believe a magazine.
Did the article state ICE or just Homeland Security in general?

Incidentally, the 5 year contract would have been up 3 years ago.
Also, I think it's funny how the article stated that their qualifying scores were better with the SIGs. My uncle tells me that they weren't having luck qualifying with the SIGs and that just about everyone's scores had dropped.
I guess I'll pick his brain again the next time he comes back to NH from NYC.

That article was published in 2011 and Dick Metcalf would not get that type of information wrong.

Let me quote the article for those of you who cannot read and/or cannot count!

Then in August 2004, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) awarded SIG a five-year contract for up to 65,000 9mm and .40 S&W pistols. The contract is for full-size P226R and mid-size P229R rail pistols with the DAK trigger system and 12-round magazine capacity and the compact P239 seven-round single-stack with conventional DAO.

As I said earlier, that means that their SIG contract was up in late 2009 or early 2010.

ok...post a link that Glock was awarded a new contract. I'll keep an eye out for 65,000 SIG 9mm and 40 S&W DAK's on the used market.
.....actually, it's possible...but rumor doesn't cut it...most people on gun forums like to see proof of statements like yours.

I guess proof that you are wrong isn't enough
