The handgun on which the Army settled—the M9—was greeted by incredulity, rage, and eventually, a major thumbs down by the troops who had to use the thing. So, on July 29 of this year, according to Military.com News, the Army will hold an “industry day” in a search for the Modular Handgun System, a replacement for its 200,000 worn-out M9s. Not only is the Army looking for a new gun and holster, but a new and more powerful cartridge. (Does this sound familiar?) The new handgun must have greater accuracy, lethality, reliability, and durability, according to a spokesman for the project. This means that the M9 failed on every count by which you can measure a handgun.
