I don't know if this is sarcasm or not, but I'm going to use this quote anyway...
Assuming this is an honest opinion, then we can assume you have an idea of what you feel is the best combat sidearm, correct? So... By that reasoning, if someone were to allow you to pick your chosen sidearm for duty carry, you would do it, correct?
Well, that's exactly what the Marine special forces have done. They were allowed to pick their duty sidearm, and they did, based on their own personal preferences and experiences. I'm sure there were some dissenters, there always are. But, overall, this is their chosen sidearm.
So, should we all continue beating this dead horse?
By the way, I think Amsdorf's hat is pretty damn cool. It takes some confidence to pull that off.
