Gotta get the ball rollin' somehow. We'll take it easy and go nice and sloooooowwww.

What is your current duty weapon? What was it before your current carry?

Mine - Para Ordnance P13-45 Limited S/S.
One of the lucky ones who gets a choice of carry.

My current duty weapon is a Glock 22. Previous duty weapons have included S&W 5943, S&W 5903, and Ruger Police Service-Six for uniform, Colt Combat Commander for plainclothes.

Hello. I'm retired now, but for the last few years it was a Browning HP 9mm MkIII with a few subtle modifications. Before that, it was a Springfield LW Gov't Model .45ACP. Back when I first started, it was an S&W M10 Heavy Bbl in .38 Spec. From there, I went to a 4" S&W M19 and then we were allowed to go to semis.

Primary: Usually a Kimber Custom Classic or a Colt G.M.
Backup: Glock 23, S&W 1917 or another G.M. or Commander.

Carry on!

For 12 years a s&w mdl 686 4inch, 3 years ago semi-auto-transitioned to a sigpro 2340 in 40 s&w cal. No input on what I carry,they said here carry this.
It all changes off duty, 1911's rule here!

Sig P229, DAO, uhhh. The chief picked them out, he got a special on them. Isn't that nice. I'm not a real fan of compact pistols in a duty gun, I like a full size piece. Off duty I've been carrying a Glock 36. They won't let us carry a 1911 at any time, it's too scary for them to have me carrying around a cocked gun. Idiots. The department I will be going to later this summer is ruled by 1911's and Sigs. I'll take either, but will probably go with my lightly customized Springfield. A P220, or P226 wouldn't hurt my feelings, either.


I carry a Colt Agent for back-up. Previously a Taurus 85

When I first hired in we used S&W model 15's, then went to our current duty gun which is a model 65. Now we will be transitioning to the Glock 22. We all know a partially cocked pistol with no external safeties is a lot safer than a 1911(I don't count the lever in the trigger as an external safety), right!?
