Two agencies, in the entire country? Wow. Major trending!
This seems a bit short-sided. I have zero doubt this is an excellent gun. The P226 and P220 are both top flight pistols. But the P226 doesn't seem to fit me so well (I wish it did), so I sold mine. I'd imagine a P227 would be plenty great, but would probably fit me even worse than the P226...in the same way that I'll never buy a Beretta/Taurus 92, when I could get a BHP/CZ 75 instead. I guess I just value sleeker/slimmer guns with my medium-large, under-massive hands.
Good gun, but thick gun. It'll be truly great for some. Just like the Beretta 92.
LE/Mil will never jump en masse to an expensive gun that fits some
, over a more affordable option that fits most
I'd jump all over a P227 if it fit my hands great. And I'd recommend the same to anyone in the market.
