High ammunition costs gave the Madison Police Department enough fuel to push city leaders to approve a gun change.
The department is going from a Glock .45 caliber to a Glock .40 caliber.
The Glock .45 caliber bullet runs the department around $40 a box. The smaller bullet will only cost $20 bucks a box.
Madison Police Chief Larry Muncey went before the city council to get approval to change their guns and it was approved.
The new guns won’t cost a dime because the city made a trade agreement with a company to turn over their old guns, including nearly 200 seized guns they have in the basement from evidence.
