Poll :: duty weapons

HF would like to know: What duty weapon do you use?
  • Glock .40
  • Glock 9mm
  • Glock .45
  • Sig 226
  • Sig 228
  • Sig 229
  • 1911 (any make) .45
  • Beretta 92F
  • Other
Obviously, HF told me the names of the guns to post. I didn't just pull these from my own knowledge. I have no idea what any of these are. I do know that HF has the Glock .40. He would like a 1911 though (Wilson Combat or Kimber). I thought it seemed ridiculous to have so many options, but HF said that he has met officers from all over that have carried one of these options. If you're not a cop, please answer for the cop or cops in your life.

Poll is over there on the top of the sidebar.      ------------------->

I answered for Hubs and I think I'm right. If not, oh well. They're all Super Personnel Supressors in my book!

JB also has a Glock .40. I think he'd prefer something else, but isn't that motivated.

Chancho has a Smith and Wesson 9mm. I guess that's something completely different from a Glock 9mm. I am clueless.

I carry a 40 cal Glock, model 23, which means it has a slightly smaller grip and mag capacity.

Everyone has to carry a 40 cal. Glock on my dept. They are assigned to us, not our own. You have a choice of carrying a model 22 or model 23.

TM- A Smith and Wesson 9mm?! :) I am clueless too.

Cop Mama- I think that is what HF uses off duty, but he has the mag extender? Or something like that.

Well, since you found me...I came here to read about you. Love your blog and I'm now following.

OH uses a Glock 21 on duty and a Smith and Wesson 38 chief's special off duty. Yes ... I had to call him to get that info!

gosh, I am questioning myself...better check the facts first. He has about 4 in the house and I can never remember which Glock I hit my elbow on when I hug him, errr I mean the one he wears all the time! :P

I honestly don't know the answer to this question-- I should, DH is actually at the gun range all week for "advanced" training. But I hate guns (yeah, that's easy when you're a LEO wife), and we just don't talk about them in my presence!

After a few Glock .45s exploded in officers' hands at range, we only carry the Glock 9mm (Model 17 or 19).

My husband's dept requires a .40 cal as their duty weapon. They issue a Smith and Wesson but my husband prefers the Glock - he uses the 23 as his main one and the 27 as his backup. He also has an M4 that he takes every day, as well as 2 other rifle/shotgun guns in his squad!

We issue Glocks in .40 S&W for everyone.

But just so HF knows, I do have a personal Wilson CQB - well worth the money if you can save up for it!

Rebecca said...

The Mr. uses his duty wepon but this PPM (pistol packin' momma) packs a glock .40
I'm in the market for something else though. Interesting post.

Sister Copinherhair said...

I answered "other" because I'm not really sure. Indubitably said a Sig Sauer 40 Cal. I didn't want to raise suspicions by asking what model. He would know something was up. ;)

His personal gun is a Glock 9mm.

Alison said...

My Officer said he carries a Glock 35. His backup is a Glock 27 & a Rouger .380 (his off-duty gun.) He also has 2 rifles in car-Colt lawman 223 & a shotgun. Yep, he's packing ;) makes me feel safer!

MJ said...

Mine carries an H&K, as do many in his department. However, he was issued a Glock GAP.

Jenney said...

I voted for my husband's gun...but mine is a Gloc .40 Yep, I have a gun too :o)
