The municipal police in France are usually unarmed.

Article.

Um... that looks like a 9mm pistol, not 7.65mm.

7.65 luger Beretta's even exist Steve? Since those look like 92FS's or some kind of copy I do wonder if some mind still be made in France. I know the 9x21 mm one's exist to sell in Italy and give italians something close to 9x19mm. I do know 7.65 Lugers were the first 98FS's for Italy (and as a Cat 4/B in France?). Any light on the subject Steve?

They did used to make the Beretta 98 in 7.65mm Luger but not for decades (before there was an FS), I doubt the picture relates to whatever pistol they've been issued. The Beretta 98FS is 9x21 only.

If you assume complete ignorance of firearms matters from all journalists, you are seldom disappointed.
