The FBI Said This is the Best Handgun (And Why They’re Wrong)

    In response to numerous inquiries from local law enforcement departments, the FBI undertook a comprehensive evaluation of the sidearms available in 1987 (most of which are still made today) to determine which pistol was the best. Thirteen of the most talented instructors that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had to offer all met at a range to throw down with handguns from Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, SIG Sauer, and Beretta. Even a CZ-75 clone was included for good measure. So which handgun did the FBI select as the best and how did they make this determination? And why does James completely disagree with the methodology and the results of the test? Watch today’s video to find out.
