    • GLOCK 21
    • We have to carry it on duty, but off duty, I guess if you wanted to carry a .50 cal Desert Eagle, more power to ya!
    • It's issued by the agency

      Beretta 96 Vertec, issued by my agency. Off duty, we can carry whatever we want provided it's within some caliber and length specifications.

        Glock 22 (.40 cal)

        If we want to carry something else off-duty we have to qualify with it as well.

              Sig P229, .40 cal.
              What ever we want for off duty.

              BTW, I had a Glock, good firearm but I will stick to my SIG!

                        On & off duty - H&K USP Compact .357sig
                        BUG & occasionally off duty - S&W 642 .38spl
                        BUG - Kel-tec P3AT

                        Most guys on our dept. carry Glock 21's, one still carries a .357mag revolver. As long as you can qualify I think you can pretty much carry what you want.
                        I purchased all of my own weapons.

                          LOLOLOOLOLOLL!!! Can't argue with that! That leg holster most be a bit much though .As for me? Glock 22 .40 cal(on duty-the "plastic gun" is tough and the .40 is potent,but wish the Dept would go for the .357 sig rd)
                          also with a pocketed back up of a S&W mod 36(.38 cal snubby) -off duty- the beretta 8045 in .45 cal-less rds but solid for "up close" and personal work

                            Current issue is .357 Sig 229, Off duty I usually carry a Ruger 2" .357 Mag or issue weapon. Past on duty weapons were S&W M-64 4" 38 spl. and then I carried my personal Sig P-226 9mm for a few years (the tritium is getting dim in the sights now), then that POS 10mm S&W 1076 (I didn't much like that gun), then we went to Sig P-229 .357 for issue.

                              Sig 229 in .40 issued. Glock 19 as BUG that I purchased myself. I carry the Glock off-duty. I carry the Glock for a couple of reasons. 1) The plastic doesn't rust from sitting under my armpit 5 days a week. A quick wipe of the slide with an oil rag every so often keeps it up. 2) It's a little lighter 3) I consider it a throw away gun. If it gets damaged, broken or whatever, it's no big deal. My personal Sigs (I have others) however are much more valuable to me as pieces.

                              I also have a Rem 870 Police Magnum, awesome scatter gun.
