Bashing a brand of firearm for PEOPLES MISTAKES is rediculous considering a firearm usually won't go off by itself.......
No, the Miami police department submitted a Request for Bids based on a very strict gun specifications requirement and Glock, as did many other name brand gun manufacturers, submitted bids. All met the same rigorous requirements but Glock submitted the lowest contract price per weapon. I am not making a personal assumption, I was part of a Palm Beach County municipalities purchasing department that wrote the RFP and selected the company that met or exceeded contract spec's and performance criteria. We also reviewed most of the other large cities, within Florida, past RFP's prior to releasing ours to ensure we covered all requirements.
Sir, I have been shooting guns for over 65 years and have only experienced one Ka boom. Based on the damage to my G22 it fired before it went into full battery. How is that a PEOPLES MISTAKE? Oh, I pulled the trigger at the wrong time.
