  • Ultimate Duty Sidearm

    Unlimited budget, any brand, any caliber, what would you carry as a sidearm? It has to go into a holster, and weigh less than 3 pounds, loaded.

    I did a search and didn't find any threads where this was asked before.

    I'll start: STI Tactical 5.0 in .40 S&W with TLR-2.

    HK USP40

    SF X300

      Either an 7-8 Shot S&W wheel gun or a 1911. Had a 5" Springfield. Could hold it steady on target all day long.
      Stupid has no color or race, everyone can participate.

        Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range? Oh wait, you said sidearm.

        Frankly, I'd be happy if I could carry one of my 226s. We carry 229s now and the grip is just a BCH too short for me.

              Actually went back and read the requirements.... Sorry about that none of my choices would qualify.

              The beatings will continue until morale improves.

                what did Robocop shoot again?

                Ummm let me think....

                H&K USP Tactical in 9mm (don't Heckle, I like it) Frame painted Green (I like Green and have a need to be different) and slide in Nickel or stainless

                and I am no light expert so I'll leave that up to you.

                        If it was a choice for ME, then I would probably go with something like a Colt Rail Gun and a Surefire X300.

                        If it was for the department, then a Glock 21SF with Surefire X300.

                        I ain't real fancy with Duty guns because they just have to work. I don't have any problems with carrying Glocks or 1911's and in fact the last .45ACP SIG I shot stuck in my memory. It's just a damn fine feeling handgun.

                          Or get a drop leg (I think it's called breachers holster) for your Mossy 500...
