In my opinion they should definitely look at another 9mm. It will save a lot of headaches and unnecessary wasted time and money that would be cause by changing to a new calibre. I'd love to see P226's become standard issue but I'd even settle for just getting brand new Hi-Powers.

My favourite quote from the whole article: "Industry representatives have privately questioned why Canada would take so long to buy a new pistol, noting that the process could be completed in about a year or two at most."

It really highlights the underlying problem. The fact that the procurement system for the Canadian Forces is completely and utterly broken. The system needs to be scrapped and redone from the ground up so we can replace equipment needed in a timely manner, and no I don't consider 10-20 years a timely manner.
