    FORT CAMPBELL, Kentucky – Soldiers with C Company, 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) fire the new M17 or Modular Handgun System at the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) indoor range, Nov. 28. The 101st ABN DIV (AASLT), the word’s only air assault division, is the first unit in the Army to field the service’s new handgun. The M17 replaces the M9 pistol, the standard Army sidearm since 1986. The division received more than 2,000 M17s and M18s, the compact version of the M17, Nov. 17, and unpacked, inventoried, inspected and test fired a portion of the pistols, Nov. 27. More expansive, battalion and brigade-level fielding initiatives will begin across the division in the coming weeks. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
