Walther Arms has secured a contract to provide Georgia’s Berrien County Sheriff’s Office with new duty pistols. The Berrien County Sheriff’s Office have selected Walther’s PPQ M2 in 9x19mm. These new 9mm 4 inch barrel PPQ M2s will replace the range of .40 S&W semi-auto pistols currently in use.
Here’s Walther’s statement about the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office (GA) contract:
Walther Arms Law Enforcement is pleased to announce that Berrien County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia has selected the Walther PPQ M2 9mm 4” as their new duty pistol. Berrien County Sheriff’s had previously carried .40 caliber semi-auto pistols and made the decision to transition to the 9mm for a variety of reasons. Rick DeMilt, Director of Law Enforcement Sales, stated that Berrien County Sheriff’s Office chose the Walther PPQ M2 9mm for many of the same reasons that other agencies have mentioned. Outstanding ergonomics combined with the smoothest striker fired trigger system in the firearms industry and outstanding accuracy. Adding to the excellent features of the pistol is the 1/10” reset, pushed the Walther Pistol to the forefront in the selection process.
Once the delivery was made to the Berrien County Sheriff’s, Dave Barnes, Law Enforcement Channel Manager traveled to the agency and conducted a detailed Walther PPQ Armorers Training Class. The training class covered the required steps in servicing the Walther Pistols. Delivery of the Walther pistols was made through the assistance of Walther’s Law Enforcement Distributor, SSD International.
