    You dont buy into it "terrific!!!
    You have NEVER done any of those things in all the gunfights you have been in. Great!!!

    You have obviously PRACTICED with these technics. In fact you admit to doing so for over 10 years. What I am saying is that the same weapons platform is a safe way to START!

    Secondly a Shotgun and rifle are SEPERATE platforms. They each require PRACTICE!

    Everyone in LE is NOT a gun fanatic like me and perhaps you! I teach officers every month who do the bare minimum the Dept. requires by way of training with guns. THEY should make it as easy on themselves as possible, if THEY are going to carry different types of "Handgun platforms".

    You dont like my advice? Dont take it! But dont say it doesnt have merit because it doesnt work for you!


    wow....relax.

      I am not a cop but I do carry a gun everyday and have put some thought into this topic. My CCW piece is a Ruger SP101 that has been worked over by Gemini Custums.

      I have a lot of guns, both auto and revolver, but I have found over the years that I simply shoot the round guns better. With my little Ruger, I have 5 rounds of .357 in a small package, that is actually comfortable to shoot, unlike those .357 J frame Smiths.

        My usual carry is a Custom LaFrance NOVA 9mm, smaller than a PPK. I may switch guns from time to time, but I never have had a problem with any of the autos I carry. I do, on occasion, carry a revolver on the ranch, mostly for the shot loads (I HATE SNAKES!).

          I like the Rossi 44 spec for something I really need to conceal. Most of the time I carry my Sig 226. I am in the process of getting the smaller Sig due to the same function and action of my duty weapon. I don't want to have to take the time to figure out another gun if stuff goes south. I want the slide release and every thing is the same places so I don't have to think.

            I have had my SP101 since I first saw them, 2 1/4", 125 gr JHP .357 Mag X 5 is a lot in such a little package (mine is DAO with the bobbed hammer). On duty, I often carry it as a bug. I do carry a speedloader for it when I carry it OD, but just recently I got a nice Blackhawk CQC with serpa retention for my issue P229 DAO .357 and I expect I'll be carrying it more often than in the past OD. I have a P226 but it's DA/SA with the drastic change in trigger, so I don't plan to carry it too often until after I retire probably since we went to that "oh so sweet" DAO P229.

              Glock 21 (45 ACP) for duty. Glock 32 (357 Sig) for off duty. Do qualify with a 2 1/2" S&W 686 and a Beretta Tomcat as alternatives.

                i carry a S&W 6906 off duty. i like the light weight and the higher capacity firepower. i used to carry a 5906 on duty and off. it was too heavy realy for off duty.

                  My duty weapon is a full-size 1911, so my backup / off-duty gun is a 3" 1911. Identical in operation.

                    Hey Pawncop, which do you prefer the .45 or the 357 sig? I'm not trying to start a debate, I'm just interested in your opinion.

Carried in a pocket holster http://hedleyholsters.com/misc.html off duty and vest holster on duty. In my opinion the ultimate compact pistol. http://www.kahr.com/pistols_9mm.html

                        i agree, this will be my next handggun purchase. right now i carry a glock 26 off duty, i'm thinking of picking up a S&W Ti revolver to alternate with the glock

                          I totally agree. The S&W airweights are great, and if you need more than five shots you are probably in such a big mess that a handgun wouldn't help anyway.
