In the U.S. military, all of the SOF units that used to use 1911s, SIGs, H&Ks, etc. are now carrying Glock 17s and 19s. So the Glock is as much an operator's weapon as it is a non-combat arms weapon.
DEVGRU recently switched to the P320 X-5, but the vast majority do still use Glocks.
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."
