Latest News Philippines: Glock 17: PNP official sidearm – Journal.com.ph:
IT’S official. Glock 17 is the Philippine National Police’s official gun after bagging the biggest PNP deal so far: a whopping P1.2 billion to supply the police force with 59,904 units of brand-new 9mm pistols.
The Glock 17 Generation 4 pistol will be the new standard sidearm of the PNP after passing the 20,000 endurance firing test and the subsequent crack test even as the PNP leadership appealed to the media to be responsible enough in reporting gripes obviously coming from the losing bidders.
“We’re calling on the media to check their facts first before coming up with a story. Anybody can make a call, blog, tweet but it could be on the loser’s side. Sinira mo na ang organisasyon bago pinakinggan,” the head of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee, PNP deputy chief for operations Deputy Director General Emelito T. Sarmiento said.
Sarmiento was hurting from accusations that the Glock pistol suffered defects while undergoing the endurance firing test. Officials blamed some losing bidders for spreading wrong report, a normal occurrence in the country where losing business proponents are known to question the quality and documents of the winners.
