Just for the record, the GSG9 does not use the SFP9. They still use the Glock 17 and 26. The SFP9 is used though now by the Luxembourg Police.Oh, please.
If by ‘hoi polli’ one means people who carry the SFP9/VP9, such as GSG9, Japan Self Defense Forces, Bavarian State Police, and a bunch of other elite military and law enforcement agencies, then one’s definition differs from mine.
You have heard of GSG9, no? The gold standard of elite antiterrorist operators. The same people who made the (striker fired!) P7 pistols famous.
