P320, the M-9 and 1911s:: When can we get a Govt Surplus Pistol?

A littler new here, so if this has been beaten to death already . . .my apologies:


I have seen a short news story that says the Navy, Air Force, marines and Coast Guard will all adopt the Army's new Modular Handgun system (Sig P-320).

So now the pool of potentially surplus M-9s has grown and will join the mega tons of model 1911s already in storage with the CMP.

Is there any PAC or lobby group that we csan join to encourage congress to authorize their release to the public (LOL).

Thanks from Dougboffl

If they do sell them they will most likely so high dollar no one other than serious collectors would want them.

CMP and NRA have been lobbying for years now unfortunately the "process" to release those items to the public is long and convoluted. We "may" get 1911s in 2020...maybe....

Before there released, I think we are in need of a Sec of the Army that's going too stay?
