The U.S. Army's new Modular Handgun System has started going out to units in the field, with the first pistols reaching the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) in late November. The Army plans to widely distribute the new M17 and M18 pistols to re-equip the force as it retires the 1980s-era M9 pistol. A new video shows the gun's introduction at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the home of the “Screaming Eagles” of the 101st.
