U.S. Army has selected the SIG SAUER P320 to replace the M9 service pistol which has been in use since the mid-1980’s. Beretta has delivered over 600,000 M-9 pistols.
What will become of these elderly veterans? Hundreds of thousands of Beretta M-9 pistols are suddenly excess to military requirements and deserve a better fate than industrial destruction.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is a federally chartered 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to training and educating U. S. citizens in responsible use of firearms through gun safety training, marksmanship training and competitions.
For decades, CMP has offered citizens opportunities to buy service rifles such as the M-1 Garrand and M-1 Carbine and at one time M-1911 pistols.
