Do you need a reason to adopt the overly expensive H und K pistol? I have a reason for you, if you don’t they will sue your sorry ass (in all fairness Walther is in on this as well but they’re not as much fun to ridicule):
Earlier this year the Dutch police announced the adoption of a new pistol, the Sig Sauer PPNL (Police Pistol Netherlands).
Heckler & Koch and Walther, who lost out on the contract, have announced their intention to take the government to court over the decision.
I wonder if H und K has superior German engineered lawyers.
