...and if it was up to you what would you carry?

We are issued Beretta 92FS's and I carry the optional HK USP .45 and the 342 as a bug.

If I could carry anything I'd carry a HK45 LEM.

Issue is a Beretta 92 FS. They are looking into Sig P250. Options to carry is varying in 9mm and 45. No 40 S&W. Many make and models are approved. I carry primarily Sig P226 in 9mm. Occassionally P220 in 45. Sigs fit in my hand most comfortably.

Issued Beretta 92FS, but carry HK P2000 on/off duty.

Rumors have that they are going to start issuing the S&W M&P 9s to the new academy classes to test em out. Supposedly they are going to replace the 92fs with the M&P 9. Hope it's true.

Others carry USP 45s, Sig p220s. Oh and we just starting getting 870s. Some station still use the good old Ithicas.

Issue is Glock 22, some deputies who were employed when semi-autos were first adopted carry others - HK USP, Beretta 92 are the ones I know of. All new deputies carry the issue Glock. There is an AR in every car.

My preference? Either a Glock 21 or a 1911.

Our Police Department issues Glock Model 21 .45ACP's and Glock Model 22 .40 S & W's. We carry Benelli M-4 14" Shotguns and Colt/Bushmaster M-4 .223' rifles. We also have an H & K Model 416 .223 and some Springfield M1A and M-14 rifles.

SWAT has H & K MP-5/40's and Colt M-4 .223 rifles.

As for allowed duty weapons, we can carry any .40 S & W or .45 ACP caliber handgun that we can qualfiy with. We can carry anything as a BUG or off-duty handguns.

I carry a Kimber 1911 Super Match II .45 ACP on duty and I carry a Glock model 27 .40 as a BUG. As for an off duty gun, I carry a Colt Commander XSE .45 ACP, S & W Model 642 .38 Spl. or Glock Model 27 .40 S & W.

Personally owned, Colt MT6731. With surefire rails, Aimpoint Comp M3, Scout light, and Ace stock.

I have a 6940 on order.

SWAT is the only ones issued AW's... the get neutered M16's from 'Nam and MP5's. But most used their own.

Most popular at my agency by far is the Colt 6920. Also common are Rock Rivers, DPMS, and Bushmasters.

We have Mini-14's in the units. We used to be able to carry our personally owned AR's as long as they were checked out by the range master. A member of the Executive Staff decided there was not a need for two different long guns. He'll be retiring soon and hopefully we can revisit and reevaluate that decision.

We are issued S&W 4566 TSW's. Gun works fine, but if I had a choice, it would definitely be the Sig P220R. I have a P226R now and that gun is a perfect mate for my hand. I carry a S&W 340PD as a BUG. Every Deputy is issued an Armalite AR and Remy 870. I wish my Department was forward thinking enough to allow us to use personal AR's or purchase our own handguns. But as it stands now, we can't even attach lights to our AR's, its against policy.

04-13-2009, 4:02 AM
We're issued the S&W M&P 40. Good gun.

I used to carry a Glock 21, but now carry a Dave Berryhill customized Kimber 5".

I plan to switch back to my Glock 21 as soon as it comes back from Robar. Lighter weight, just as accurate and higher mag cap. Can't beat it.

LAPD stopped issuing the berreta 92 and now issues the Glock 22. Glocks are cool as are Hks, Sigs etc, but does anyone else have an issue when an American police department forces (issues) foreign guns?

I mean it would be like U.S. police departments having foreign police cars.

Is it that the Unites States just doesnt produce a decent police issue gun?

Or am I just being silly?

Before I retired approx. four years ago we went from the Sig P226 9mm to your choice of a Sig P226 40 or a Glock 40 I chose the Sig. The Sig was issued with night sights and a SF flashlight. When I retired I turned it in and at my retirement dinner the Chief presented it to me. I also was able to purchase ($300.00) my Sig 9mm when we converted to the 40s. The Sig 9mm has a special place in my heart. It was issued new in the box in 1990. In 1994 good training and that gun saved my life.

After the Hollywood shootout we went from shotgun to the Ruger 9mm rifle. I would have preferred to stay with the shotgun.

We also carried Tasers.

Issued a Glock 17 for duty carry with no option to carry anything else.

We can carry anything O/D as long as we are qualified with it. I usually carry a Glock 26 though I have a SW 642 that I occasionally carry when it's warm.

I have a Colt Officer's Model that I should be getting back from Robar any day now. I anticipate that it will be come my primary O/D carry.

Yeah, S&W stopped making these guns, but they made them for us upon our request. The Picatinny rail is machined into the dust cover as opposed to the old style which was a bolt on rail. All of the spare parts we had for our 4506 and 4506-1's are exactly the same as the 4566-TSW, which was a big deciding factor for my Department. We wanted either USP's or Sig's, but that was shot down. We even worked out a deal with H&K to get USP's and USP Compacts in a package deal for cheaper than the S&W's, but the Department's upper echelon is fixated on S&W for some reason. Most everyone else was in line for the H&K or Sig, but obviously our concerns were disregarded.

Everyone is issued and required to use the Department issued .45 caliber 4566-TSW, no exceptions. Prior to the beginning of 2008, the only authorized off duty gun was an issued S&W CS45. Which is like carrying a mini anchor. I think my full size Sig conceals better. The idea of being issued an off duty carry gun is a nice thought, but in practice it really was ridiculous. Currently we can carry just about anything we want off duty as long as we qualify with it and it's on the books with the Department and has passed an armourers inspection.

Speaking of M4's, my unit just got hooked up with a bunch of goodies... Rails and foregrip/bipods, and ACOG's for almost all of our M4's. And our SAW's got short barrels and collapsible stocks now too. Just waiting for my SAW to get a rail so I can put a grip on it, and I'll be investing in an EOTech soon.

In one dept we could carry whatever as long as it was not single action only. I carried a Riger P90 and then a H&K USP45f. Honestly that P90 was THE most acurate handgun I have ever carried on duty or off. When you ran out of ammo you could use it as an impact weapon :eek:
