Glad there was so much interesting response, thanks. However, trying to direct this thread back to my original question.
What I was trying to get to the bottom of was, in a nutshell: Why do the military (and also some fed agencies) seemingly distrust the "striker fired / no external safeties" approach while the same works so well for hundreds of police departments?
What I wanted to aim at was whether it has to do with the different role of a LEO handgun compared to a military sidearm.
