80,000 what is missing... Iraqi cops, or G-19s???

I hear that most of the "cops" in Afghanistan got Stigmas and Rugers.

I guess they know where THEY are in the pecking order...

In 2005 I oversaw the issue of 6000 Glock 19 pistols along w/training to the Kurdish (Iraq) Police forces.

And Yes , a lot of them went missing after issue

Such is life in Iraq

Yes those iraqi cops sell them at black markets.

I have taken a close look at them.

They are identical - except for ----

Only markings that are different are on the BARREL - you can see it if you look at the top of the barrel in the ejection port.

Yep, they carry G19. Most of them get "stolen" which just means they sold them. They are all equipped with night sights also.

I've never seen any G17. I've seen M9 with the National Police but only a few. rumor has it that they are going to stop buying Glocks and start buying M9's. Who the f*ck knows though really.

They have rails and they get them brand new. They are 19's and if there are 17's they are far and few between.

Trust me, I work with them and train them.

Thank you for your service.

Now I have to get another glock...a g19 tho

I'm a big Glock fan but don't buy them because the Iraqi police use them. They didn't have a say in it. Those guy's can't even keep their AKs running properly so take that for what it's worth bro. Kind of hard to f*ck up an AK.
