The Senoia Police Department has made a deal with Glock, in which trade-ins will be bought back for $300 and 16 new 9mm pistols will also be purchased. What could possibly make these cops opt for less stopping power, especially since new guns were not in their budget for this year?

The main reason the Senoia Police Chief Jason Edens told the Times-Herold for the change, was availability. Senoia as well as other citys' departments are being forced to wait over six months for their orders of training and duty ammo.

"What could possibly make these cops opt for less stopping power"... I've become convinced over time... and after witnessing and reading info ad-nausea on the matter... that the difference in "stopping power" between 9mm, .40S&W, and .45ACP is negligible... and the 9mm is more controllable for a lot of folks than the other two calibers... and most 9mm handguns on average hold more rounds than similar size guns in 40S&W and .45ACP... if the average cop hits the attacker with only 3 of 10 shots fired... they're better to have 19 rounds of 9mm than 15 rounds of .40S&W... and on average 9mm ammo is cheaper for practice...

I have gone from carrying a .45ACP years ago... to carrying a full-size 9mm these days... and I'm OK with that... but I'm also OK with whatever someone else carries... as long as they carry... :-)
