Fournier said the first batch of new guns arrived in June, and that officers who received them qualified in their use. The last batch of guns arrived last week and now all of Groveland’s officers are qualified in their use.
”The consensus is they like the .45s over the .40s as the recoil is smoother and more manageable than the .40, which kind of snaps as it’s a heavier gun,” Fournier said.
”Georgetown has the new Glock .45s on order and Haverhill is looking into them,” Fourner said. “There’s also a move across the state with agencies looking into the .45s as well.”
