  • CHP List of on-duty approved firearms?

    I know the standard issued duty weapon for CHP Officers is currently the Smith & Wesson Model 4006 TSW. However, I was curious if there is also a list of approved duty weapons officers may carry as well?

    Nope. The issue pistol is the only one they can carry on duty.

      On the topic of approved duty weapons. Does Santa Cruz Co. SO have a specific approved duty weapon?

          You have a choice of any Glock 22 or any Glock 22 with night sights. Tac lights are approved.

            Don't forget you can also carry a Glock 22 if you prefer.

              A couple of classmates of mine from Santa Cruz had issued ones with increased trigger pulls. I used the G22 myself, but they had painful trigger pulls. The SO must have done something to them.

              That's a dangerous thing to do is use extra trigger pull as a safety enhancement. It’s funny to watch someone accustomed to a 7+ pull shoot something more reasonable and the gun goes off before they want it to, but that’s how accidents happen as well.

                I don't know if it is still offered, but the "New York Trigger" on Glocks has an 8-lb pull.

                  We got the standard triggers back last year. Night sights are approved but you have to buy them yourself. Issued long gun is semi-auto mp5 9mm and one magazine. God help you if need more rounds or encounter someone with armor.

                    30 rounds of 9mm can do a lot of damage especially comming out of an MP5...go for a failure drill two body and 1 head..

                        Failure drills are fine, I would rather have a rifle or a shotgun and slugs.

                          What do the recent posts have to do with the title of the thread?

                            In 1990, when we first went to Glocks from revolvers, some old gomers who weren't gun guys and pretty much had no business making any decisions about firearms decreed that we would have the eight pound triggers because it could help prevent NDs. Never mind that if someone has their finger on the trigger and gets scared, trips and falls or does something else where he tightens his grip in response, it's going to be with a lot more force than any trigger spring ever made.

                            Thank goodness that smarter people finally prevailed.

                              By any chance does anyone here know what the On-duty carry policy of Pasadena Police is? This past weekend I saw a Pasadena motor officer carrying what appeared to be a 1911.
