If you mean by adopted that it is qualified to be bought by PO's and used on duty then maybe. If however you mean that it is going to become standard/official issue then I think not.jwc007 said:The Phillipine National Police have recently adopted a Taurus 24/7 of some configuration in 9mm. Testing trials were conducted with several makes.
Why is that, NYPD? Is it because of so much competition, or because the 24/7 is sub-par to other competitors in some way, or simply politics?NYPD in AZ said:That being said, I know of no large police agency having the 24/7 on an approved on-duty carry list.
Now celebrating my 888th post!Recently, Philippine police placed an order for 5,000 Taurus pistols to replace their aging Beretta 92 pistols after a rigorous testing. RK Campbell - Gunblast
Okay I will then.NYPD said:I cannot answer that question :-\
I posted the question to gather some facts about the 24/7.45 Forever said:I don't care if LEO carry them. I mean what difference does it make do you know how many gun designs are out there and only a few are purchased by whole departments.

I don't know, I see the value in knowing if any agenciy has picked up a particualr model. They have the resources to test hundreds of different handgun makes and models and run hundreds of thousands of rounds through them, something most of us can't do. While I would never suggest anyone base thier entire opinion on "Agency x carries make Y" reports, it should still be valuable information (even knowing that theres HUGE politics involved in any large agencies selection).45 Forever said:I don't care if LEO carry them.

Thanks for looking into it for us, Markba. It's hard to know what's going on all over the world.markrba said:I read that article but I am afraid the writer is misinformed. I was able to talk to the local distributor and they told me that all orders by the PNP of Taurus pistols have been of the PT92.
