Either by:How do our guys over there get weapons beyond standard issue?
...with Court Martial being the likely result. Military law not being famously forgiving.Slowhand said:Like the old saying: "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission."
Actually, the armed forces do issue some Sig P228s as well (as the M11). So it could have been issued, too.I've only seen one non-issue weapon over here (besides the SF guys) and that was a SIG 9mm.
Wrong. The Geneva Convention says nothing about ammunition. You are thinking about the various Hague conventions, which we interpret as meaning that we can't use expanding ammo.All military handgun ammo is, required by the Geneva convention. Even the SF guys who do have different pistols won't have hollow points
Only if you want them sent to Leavenworth if they use it.I think your better course of action, if he's going to be issued an M9 would be to have him sneak some good self-defense ammo to supplement his issued 9mm NATO ball ammo.
U.S. Army 1995-2001, including 2x 3rd world "field trips" :biglaugh: , both with armor battalions. People who snuck stuff they weren't supposed to out OR in got hammered, and hard.tthiel said:I don't know what your military experience is but this would be a wrist slap in most cases in a combat unit.
