    Congratulations

    Congratulations Golf! They have some really good instructors in training there I'm really good friends with a couple. Just remember to keep up on your studying and don't take things too personal. It's all about the job and once your done some of the instructors that seem like jerks will become really good friends. The best feeling in your life was probably when you got the final word your were hired. Well I'm here the tell you the only feeling that will make you feel better is when they call your name and walk across that stage and get your certificate. As for the Glock, I carry a Glock22 and only had one problem so far. I had to shoot an animal one night and after firing a second shot the slide locked open and would not close(It's better I found out there was a problem then than in a use of force incident). I ended up having to send it in to be looked at. Other then that throughout the academy I never had any problems with mine and I like the way it grips.

    Good Luck and Congratulations

Its almost a surreal feeling; Ive been in the process for over a year now,so for it to finally be over with and knowing that I am in the academy is incredible. My last decision to make is whether to go with a Glock 21 or a Glock 22 model. Any advice on preference? thanks to everyone for the informative posts, they helped me immensely!
    Congratulations, and good luck in the academy!

    Belts??

    I cant believe i dontknow the answer to this question onmy own, but do you wear a regular belt under the duty belt? I went to be fittedfor my uniform today, and the pants are a tad big in the waist. the wont fall down,im just worried about the weight of the duty belt added to this. Im not sure if a regular belt would be very comfortable under the belt or not?

    As for applications, I wish I had a better answer, however, we are down 1 officer with another off due to an accident (injuries). I'd like to hire two now but the city council has other ideas. I'm just the Sgt not the Mayor.

    Congrates. I have two Glock 22 and would not think of anything else to carry on duty. Off duty, I tried the 27 but found it to be a bit too small. The 23 is my next purchase.

    I guess the way I should have put it, by the time I work for OPD, there will be a Valley District (i.e. when hell freezes over) LOL

    Valley

    When is the next time Valley is going to be taking apps? Also do you think Captain DAN has any chance of taking over the county from Sheriff Tim?
