I noticed equivalent thing that is damn. Maintaining it down offers definitely no speed on the draw, nonetheless it compromises the capacity to wthhold the gun. Most likely don't desire to protect up that sweet, sweet ...

- I noticed the same damn thing. Keeping it down offers absolutely no speed on the draw, but it compromises the ability to retain the weapon.
- Probably didn't want to cover up that sweet, sweet M&P. But nah, I agree. Very strange to invest in M&P's (Not the cheapest option), then add on UZI's.
- What's the security hood?
- Thingy on the pistol holster I suppose since the one on the right has its flipped up, over the pistol.
- Ah thanks, I feel stupid now lol. I was thinking like a head hood...I'm dumb
- Interesting to see UZIs in use. Doesn't strike me as a very accurate weapon, at least compared to other guns in use by Western law enforcement.
- For close quarters, like an apartment, it is well suited.
- Indeed, the UZI was designed as a defensive weapon, specifically for the needs of Jewish settlers if I recall correctly.
- Uzis and M&Ps. Interesting combo, a very recent modern sidearm and a very old SMG (the design is very old, the gun itself might've been made yesterday, I don't know, but the design's from the '50s). Weird, would love to know why they went with those.
- Likely a hand-me-down from the tactical unit(s) (I know little of Belgium's security forces). A little more power for the patrol cops that doesn't really cost anything to provide.
- the locking system on the M&P is also very old, first designed by Browning before the 1920s. Read more comments
