Just seen a story on the local news that Indiana State Police are trading in their Glock 22's for Glock 17's. They had carried Berreta 92G's since about early 1990's.?

They were citing "problems" with the new pistols from design changes and the manufacturer could not solve the issues so they were going to the "higher capacity Glock 17's"....blah....blah.....and so on trumped up news lingo without saying anything.

Anyhow, anyone have any idea what the design changes that Glock made since the ISP received these so called "problem" 22's? Or what issues they could be citing?

Just curious,

I believe they had 92s for awhile, and I know for certain that they had the 96s before this recent switch to Glocks. My uncle is a Trooper and he was quite upset about the switch to Glocks, and I think these problems confirmed his displeasure.

+1 , but me thinks SIG is asking for a higher dollar than ISP wants to pay. Times are tight.

I'm with you, I'm a SIG fan myself.

I could have swore they still carried Berettas..

Good, I just put in an application w/ ISP. Glad they moved to Glocks.

They did up until recently, but now they've switched to the tactical tupperware and it appears to be biting them in the ass. I'm sure Glock will make it right though. Best of luck with your application, the ISP is desperately seeking good candidates.

If they can't afford Sigs, we know they can't afford HKs
