I think there are a few in Europe that do.

Check out wikipedia, I'm sure there are a couple.

The men of Seal Team 10 were not armed with Glocks. In the above photo, all but Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Luttrell (third from the right) were killed in the Hindu Kush on 28JUN05 while participating in Operation Redwing.

PPSH's are only for the officers. My first deployment I had a Mosin Nagant.

If you read the glock 19 description at glock.com they claim that some USAF pilots are issued the G19 as a defensive sidearm.

I believe certain SPECOPS teams are allowed to carry damn near anything they feel is necessary to complete the mission.

They put a stock on the MK23 and are now selling it as HK 416 That MK23 is BIG, no way anyone can use it as a handgun

Sorry

OMG, these threads are funnyl

US NAVY SEALS use the Sig 226 almost exclusivly. I think they may now use the 239 for more covert work.

There have been the occasional photos that have turned up, like some of those above, that show Glocks in the hands of "regular" army and Marines, but these seem rare. In many instances, it may be that these particular soldiers were involved with training of the Iraqis, who use the Glock 19, I believe.

SFOD (Delta Force) is now, according to several sources, mostly using the Glock 22. Glocks have een popular with them since the early days of Afghanistan (if not before), where the Glock was more forgiving in sand than their custom 1911s (read Dalton Fury's "Kill Bin Laden", Pete Blaber's book "The Mission, The Men, and Me" (these first two guys were actual Delta operators), or Sean Naylor's "Not a Good Day to Die", all of which describe Delta guys wtih Glocks. It's also mentioned in the Osprey book on Special Forces in Iraq and possibly also the similar book on Afghanistan.

I've posted before pics of US Special Operations forces with Glocks here on this forum and was pronounced an a**hole, among other things, so I'll not bother again.

To further answer the OPs question, I think (am in no way positive) that the Glock is used by at least some units in the IDF.

Also, in the pic above of Navy Seals, there are no Glocks in that pic, but there is a pic that I have of a guy standing with two of the Seals in that above pic (James Suh and I think Matt Axelson, RIP) who has what looks like a Glock 19 stuffed down his "bib". Since the pic is taken in the same place as a bunch of similar photos of other seals from that unit, I assume he is also a Seal, though there is a possiblity that he could be some other SF or even a contractor.

no U.S forces are "issued" glocks, but some units may allow individuals to carry a weapon of their choice.....which in some cases is a glock
