    There's no chance these days F10. I believe the last police firearms released in any number were the Enforcer's.

    Only half of those ended up being sold, the others half got the chop.

    Prior to that, I think they sold off their Webleys in the 1970's.

    Nothing will get sold off now, it's either gifted to another country, or chopped up .... Chopped up is the easier option by far, as it requires far less paper work.

    So what? The U.N. should have NO say in what we do inside our own country. And as far as hosting them, I think the Swissicon should step up.

    I heard that there was a very rare Thompson Model 1927 semi auto among the St Louis Police Department Thompson collection too.
