100,000 Pistols

An Egyptian security official says Egypt will supply their policemen with 100,000 new 9mm pistols, after many complained about a lack of firepower. Hmmm, perhaps .45s might be more appropriate?

  1. There is a whisper going around that they have already looked at buying the Russian MP 443 ‘Grach’ (Rook). It uses an eighteen round steel magazine that houses the 9mm Luger/Parabellum round.

    It is in current use with the Russian military & police enforcement. The barrel is above standard peak pressure and chambered to use a 9mm armour piercing round with a hardened steel core.
    (It has produced some spectacular results in use in Chechnya).

    Just the sort of side arm required for putting down unruly students in Egypt!

    Yours Aye.

    • Can I ask a question? You’re an Ex (naughty) Bootneck??? Since when??? I didn’t perceive you to be naughty, just hilarious and funny….k

      • Kristen I believe it was to fit in with a previous comment I made after a ‘couple’ of glasses of port and some fine cheese & crackers. It was the cheese that left me with a hangover; I think?

        Aye.

        • Really?? I must have missed that incarnation of you….you’ve never demonstrated perceivable naughtiness (damn it!) in my direction…oh well, such are the vagaries of life….k

  2. I though being a Marine and being Naught was the same thing.

    You mean Egypt didn’t ask Obie for another Fast and Furious for free weapons?

    • I kinda think that was the idea, CP….another Fast & Furious in the Middle East….at least from the looks of things….no surprises here; Obie is so predictable….and so autocratic…..k

  3. Maybe they are getting them from all the gun buyback programs that they are trying to run.

  4. Kris: Big Five?
    Struan: Now that is a principled stand.
    ENB: The Grach? What a catchy name!
    Kris: You have not been paying attention.
    EBTNB: Cheese will do that to you. Watch your thighs too. The stuff has a way of going from your stomach right to your upper thighal region.
    CP: Obie? Ben Kenobi? What’s he got to go with this?
    mark: Verrrry smart. Buy back the junk, sell it to Egypt.
