    I know you use a Glock on duty what do you carry or goto the range with off duty?

    I'm thinking of picking up the FN FNP-45 tactical for the range but would also like to carry and have heard this is a large pistol.

    Sometimes bad things happen when you assume.........................Not everyone carries a glock...........I carry a Sig P220 on duty. I used to carry an HK. Sometimes I carry my P220 off duty. And at the range. And sometimes I even shoot my 1911's at the range too. Oh yeah, and sometimes I carry them off duty also. Or my revolvers. or my shotguns. Or my rifles. I have guns made by Sig, HK, Smith and Wesson, Remington, Winchester, Springfield, Colt, Taurus, Ruger, even a Hi-point carbine.



    But I dont own a Glock. I dont carry them on duty. Or off duty. I will occasionally shoot them at the range, but only to embarrass my friends by showing them I can shoot their guns better than they can.

          No glock for me even though it is the issue weapon. I stay qualified on my 1911 and the XD; both in .45ACP. My agency alternate weapon policy is GREAT!

          When I shoot recreationally I take my .243, an AR, a Hi-Power, a .357, each of my duty guns and backups, and whatever else will fit on the back seat. Always a .22 rifle too!

          I was looking at the FNP45 as a duty pistol also. If I were still in uniform, I may have chosen it as my last purchase over the XD45. But it is a HUGE gun. I need to conceal deeply fairly often, and the XD45 Compact was the choice for me. I just picked up an XD9 Subcompact that will become my off-duty and extradition gun.

            I carry a Sig P226 in .40S&W on duty. When I go to the range and toy around I shoot Glocks. If I go to the range and want to have some serious entertainment then it is a 1911.

            As for the FNP 45 Tac, it is a full sized pistol but it isn't heavy. No issues there. I would like to have one to toy around with.

                I carry a Kimber TLE/Rl 2 with TRL-1s (strobe feature) as much as i wouldn't mind carrying a Glock, I decided to go with the gun I could shoot best. I'll post a picture later. Off duty though i cary a glock 27 with crimson trace laser grips.

                  Thanks for the replies.

                  Ill look into the 1911's a bit more maybe a Sig 1911.

                  I dont need a silencer or 16rds of .45 but it would be fun to use at range days.

                    Prohibited, really? Just curious what the departments reasoning is?

                    Large agency in my area has prohibited the Glock 22 & 23 because of concerns over feed reliability issues that became apparent with weapon-mounted lights, but still OK to carry 9mm & .45 ACP models.

                    HK USP is a great gun by the way. I am really wanting to get the new HK45 with LEM variant (just hard to spend the dollars).

                        I carry a Glock 37 on duty. We are issued a sidearm and don't have a choice in the matter. I can honestly say, if I had a choice, I'd still carry a Glock. Probably not the 37, but most likely a 21. I'm a big fan of the .45 ACP, and I'm still warming up to the .45 GAP round (mostly because they're hard to come by and expensive).

                        Off duty I carry either a Glock 30 or a Smith & Wesson 642 "Airweight". Lately with this heat, its only been the snubbie.

                          What's the reasoning behind the policy?

                            The 'reason' depends on who you ask......no safety, and an 'active' trigger are the two main reasons that I have heard....

                            We have a very short list of approved weapons for duty and off duty use.....anything that is not on the list is prohibited for use......

                            Glock not being on the list doesnt bother me one bit......I have never liked them, and will never own one.....doesnt mean they arent well made (they are), but I dont like the hold, the sight picture, or the trigger pull on them....

                              Thats why I love Glocks. There no messing around with a "safety" in order to fire. Different strokes I guess...I just think it's a shame though that some officers are denied the ability to carry a proven weapon based on some knuckleheads concept of safety.
