Wartime U.S. presidents have taken keen personal interest in picking the most lethal gun for the military.

But in President Obama’s first foray into small-arms procurement for the armed forces, his Jan. 4 executive order on gun control directs the Pentagon to find ways to make not so much more lethal firearms, but safer ones.

His direct order has brought a few snickers among retired combatants who argue that the commander in chief is issuing his directive at a time of more pressing small-arms priorities. The military, critics say, fields a flawed personal rifle and has spent more than a decade selecting a new off-the-shelf pistol, with no winner yet.​

Obama’s gun control executive order directs Pentagon to make firearms safer, not more lethal

Interesting secondary focus of the article...the M4s combat shortcomings and M9 replacement debacle.

Plus Lincolns personal testing of the repeating rifle. :thup:
