I think the reasoning for switching to 9mm auto was ammo capacity of the magazine. This was soon after a group of FBI agents were murdered in the street with semi-auto's while trying to reload their 6-banger revolvers. Many PD's around the country no longer wanted to risk having their cops shot up by the bad guys while using speedloaders. I retired just before the department was going to give me a nice Glock or Sig Sauer.

I heard this on the radio this morning, and didnt quite believe it until reading the article.
It seems as though this actor is going through some bad times and tried to kill himself by shooting himself in the head with a .38 special. It didnt work and he was able to pick up the phone, call 911, then talk to police as they entered his home. This kind of make me wonder how much of an effect it might have on a pissed off bad guy that wishes to do me or mine harm. On the other hand I know that the .38 special was used for many years with good results.

"so they could hit with a 9mm because the Wondernines have crappy accuracy for the most part and then.."
No, it was not an accuracy issue, it was piss poor marksmanship.

Well, maybe......Turkey Platter/Dinner Plate @ 25 yards was "Combat Accuracy", but I agree with you somewhat they had so many more shots from a 9mm (15 vs 6) they didn't try to aim like they would from a revolver knowing they had to make'm count..
