BTW, DHS? *I didn't know that Dept of Human Services carried weapons but I guess those social workers have to go in some pretty tough neighborhoods. * ;D
I thought it was the Department of Homeland Security. Maybe I'm wrong though.[/quote]
I think (hope) he was yanking your chain.
IIRC I seem to remember reading somewhere DHS settled on the Sig P239 in .40 as the standard issue. A lighter recoil load would make sense with this gun for controlling follow up shots. And the 135 still delivers higner numbers in the FPE deparment than 115gr or 124gr 9mm although it's not quite as hard hitting (in FPE) as 147gr
