There are a number for officers on my department that have switched to the new MP series and I know of a number of departments that are looking at the S&W newest offerings. S&W profits are up so a increasing number of people are buying their guns.

Steelshooter said:I would be interested to hear more. I was not under the impression that a significant number of LE agencies were switching to M&P just yet. Also since Glock LE prices are already very low how are they responding?
I was thinking the other day what I would like to see Glock improve..reshaped grip, less blocky slide, more comfortable trigger, better out of the box sighs when I realized i was basically describing an M&P.
ToddG said:Having shot a lot of 96-series Berettas and the Glock in 45 GAP, all I can say is that anyone who thinks the GAP is more controllable must shoot at Bizarro Range.
And the 96D Brig that PASP issued had an aluminum frame, not a steel one.
This isn't new news, btw. The decision was made early this year after Glock gave NYPD 5,000 free Glocks to help reinvigorate the .45 GAP cartridge in the LE market.
