Canadian Sidearm
 
What sidearms do the CF use? I've never been able to find a proper answer on that question.

Lakonian November 14th, 2006 22:28

good question... I heard they're still using the Browning HP 9mm.

-Browning High Power 9mm-Still in service
-Sig Sauer P225-New issue

techobo November 14th, 2006 22:31

Hmm yet another reason for me to get a 226.

baraccuda November 14th, 2006 22:32

all belive it when i see it 1911 high power browning 9mm

MADDOG November 14th, 2006 22:38

No Browning HP not 1911
Favorite side arm of machine gunners in the CF.
Don't believe what people say these things are accurate and reliable except for weak springs in the magazines.

baraccuda November 14th, 2006 22:41

The Browning 9-mm pistol is carried by officers and soldiers who require a sidearm that can be rapidly drawn and fired, even in confined spaces. The pistol consists of a barrel, a slide, a breech block, a frame, and a 13 round magazine.

still think we should've gone with Para-Ord. , or something 1911-based (clones) atleast.. not a huge fan of the sig...
