I heard that the military is moving from the 9mm to possibly a 45 or newer 45 caliber has anyone else heard? :D

I thought that Ruger just got a big government contract for 9 mm semi-autos.

The Army Times had a story about some army unit testing current model handguns from many makers in calibers bigger than 9mm to see if it was worth switching. From what I heard they were testing 357 sig, 40 s&w, 45 acp and maybe 45 gap.

They did say something about the pistols have to be non-developmental (existing) designs and that the reason they are testing is get an idea of what good possible replacements might be before starting the process of switching.
