    Portuguese Army Selects Gen 5 G17 Glocks.

    Portuguese Army Selects Gen 5 G17 Glocks.

    Glock announced today that the Portuguese Army adopted the Glock 17 Gen5 FS as its official secondary weapon. The contract was signed after Glock competed against several manufacturers (Sig Sauer, H&K, CZ, Beretta) in a NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) tender in July 2019. The first 2910 pistols have started to arrive in Portugal today and the process should be concluded before the end of the year.
    AFTER COMPETING IN NATO SUPPORT AND PROCUREMENT AGENCY (NSPA), GLOCK WINS THE TENDER FOR THE PORTUGUESE ARMY NEW SIDEARM WITH THE G17 GEN5 FS COYOTE.


    “We are proud to be selected to support the missions of the Portuguese military with the latest generation of GLOCK pistols”, said Richard Flür, Director of International Sales at GLOCK GmbH. “The Portuguese Army is among multiple military and law enforcement entities which GLOCK strongly supports in the region and we are excited to welcome them to the GLOCK family.”
    Portuguese distributor, Sodarca Lda. (www.sodarca.pt), supported Glock in this tender. “This public competition has been expected for several years and has been finally concluded successfully with the best option possible,” said Joao Bravo

    Didn't know Portugal had much of an army, so their endorsement isn't especially thrilling.. The only country they can invade (or be invaded by) by land is Spain, and the Spanish have been pretty quiet lately.

    "Compromise" is a negotiation term that can only be used one time - when you compromise a compromise, you have lost the entire issue.

    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!” Hunter S. Thompson
