Speer Ammunition Awarded Duty Ammunition Contract For French Police

Despite the jokes, the French have an incredibly storied history in the use of firearms. They’ve been involved in over 100 wars and conflicts around the globe, in which firearms were used. Domestically, their GIGN (Groupe d’intervention de la Gendarmerie nationale) counter-terrorism unit is one of the most elite in the world. All of those firearms need to eat, and Speer is here to feed them. Speer was just awarded contracts to supply several French police agencies with duty ammunition.

Speer Ammunition @ TFB:

“We are extremely pleased with this prestigious contract award,” said Speer’s President Jason Vanderbrink. “It validates the high level of trust the international law enforcement agencies have with our extremely reliable and innovative products.”

Speer Gold Dot is popular among law enforcement agencies around the world. It makes sense that the French National Police, the National Gendarmerie, Customs Police, and the Penitentiary Administration will all be carrying it. Between these agencies, approximately 250,000 people will have their mags loaded with Gold Dot 124-grain 9mm. The contract will span four years and create 20 million rounds of ammunition. Gold Dot uses a lead core that is bonded to the jacket at the atomic level. This is designed to minimize separation as the bullet impacts the target. Primers are sealed for reliable ignition and cases are nickel-plated for corrosion resistance.

Stemming from his childhood love of WWII history, Nic's passion for firearms continues to grow as his maturity level recedes. He has competed in local USPSA, IDPA, and rifle competitions, and has an almost unnatural affection for Rosie, his Gen3 Glock 19. @the_brutal_rooster

      @J Fess Yep. The French took horrendous casualties in WWI, and the casualty list in WWII was bloated by the fact that in many places, e.g., North Africa, the Vichy French fought the Free French.

    They are capable of building and maintaining a nuclear arsenal. That's gonna be bad news when the goat breeders take over their country. I'm very surprised they don't make their own ammunition.
