I asked a Va. trooper the other day about his sidearm. He said it was, in fact, a Sig 229 in .357 sig. He said he was a new trooper (nice guy) and hadn't shot enough of other cal.s to give a comparison.

Georgia State Patrol just went to the Glock 37 in .45 GAP alittle more than a year ago. Figures Georgia would be one of the first to use the new .45 GAP since Glock is based right here in Smyrna, GA.

I haven't looked lately but Washington (WSP) has carried the Beretta for a long time.





Just a thought Why would you ask members of a gun forum if you should buy a gun. Kinda like an alcoholic going into a bar to hoping to have someone tell him not to drink.

Anyone who would sacrifice freedom for security deserves neither!!!

Gun control defined: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.

What are MG's for?
Because if you are going to cry out, "Say Hello To My Little Fren" and you are holding a bolt action .22, you have no style.

Alabama has several different departments....but I am pretty certain that they are issued a Beretta first and then later just about ALL of the officers I know of buy a Glock for themselves.

Pennsylvania is in the process of switching to Glock 37s in 45 GAP. Arizona gives officer choice of Sig P239, P229, P226 all in 40S&W
If Kansas really does issue an LDA, that is the first dept I have heard of that does so.
And does Kentucky really use 1076s? That hasn't been made for years.

New Jersey State police issued HK P7 for many years. Don't know what they went to went they switched a couple of years back.

Secret Service: FN-five-seven

Yes, I know it's not a State Agency. How about an "All Agency" list?

Edit: I wonder what The Texas Rangers carry?

The SIG is the standard issue Secret Service pistol. They own some FN Five-Seven's, but they're just for special purpose use. Many people think Presidential Security when this agency is mentioned, but VIP protection is actually only one of their duties. It's primarily an investigative agency.

Texas Rangers are allowed to carry just about any autopistol they choose as long as it's at least 9mm. All I've seen are toting 1911-type .45 ACP's or SIG's in either .357 SIG or .45 ACP.

IRS converted from 9mm sigs to Glocks in 40 cal. about 2 years ago. As to model, the agents were offered two models, a 22 or model 23. Personal choice between compact or full size.

This is what the Utah Highway Patrol issued in 1938:




This is what the Florida Highway Patrol issued in 1977:




In 1970 several federal agencies were issuing these:




Round guns just have more style and panache. Those plastic bottom-feeders lack the elegance of a fine .357 Magnum revolver.

Oh well. That's progress,,, I guess.

True, but they nearly triple the intrinsic capacity, plus probably double to triple the reload speed.

Sounds trite, but capacity is pretty much the ONLY reason they're so widely used. There is no intrinsic advantage (and in fact a possible disadvantage) when it comes to reliability, accuracy, and stopping power.

I wonder what percentage of municipal/local PDs are still using wheelguns as their primary duty gun.

I'm actually *shocked* to see that one dept (Kentucky) has a 10mm as its issue gun!

Just about every other agency uses the .40.

I know NYC cops use the 9mm because their force is so large, they have lots of new recruits and female officers, and found it easier to standardize on 9mm. IIRC, they still use a pretty hot 124 gr 9mm+P round.

Here's an excerpt from the Texas Department of Public Safety website regarding Texas Ranger History:

"In their early years as part of the DPS, Rangers were furnished a Colt .45 and a lever action Winchester .30 caliber rifle by the state. Rangers had to provide their own car, horse, and saddle, though the DPS issued horse trailers and paid automobile mileage."

Bummer. You'd think Utah at least would issue a John Browning design. I'm a little disappointed to see my Wyoming HP carries a Glock. At least it's not a 9mm. Oh well, they're cheap and they usually fire when you squeeze the thingy on the bottom.

one time I asked a small town policeman in NC about his carry sidearm. (I was attempting to divert his limited attention from the fact that I had, indeed, been traveling at a high rate of speed through his town)

he was carrying a 40 cal and I asked him why the larger cal. 9s were the rage back then and he told me that he had been dispatched to kill a cat that had been mauled by a lawnmower and needed to be put out of his misery. He says he walks over and fires three 9mm rounds into the cat at which point the cat decided to get up and run to his distraught owner...three more shots and the cat expired with most of his head gone.

The old lady that owned a cat expressed her dismay to the chief at which time the dept sprung for new 40cals!

He probably put the first 3 shots into the stomach. I once saw a PA State Trooper do the same thing to a hit deer. He finally shot it in the head with his shotgun.

March 2007 issue of Shooting Times had a nice article about the Texas Rangers, then and now. It states that over 70% of them now carry a Sig, most of them the P226 DAK, in 357 Sig.

I feel bad for Wisconsin......

The "ONLY" bad thing about owning "A GUN" is........not owning two or more!

When the dust settles and the smoke has cleared, it's not the firearm in hand that determines accuracy, but rather, the hand on the firearm.

last two indiana troopers that pulled me over were wearing glocks.
for some reason after they find out about my permit, they arent real talkative about guns. i usually ask them what they got, model and caliber. the ones that pull me over usually give me a none of your business, or that shouldnt concern you unless you make me use it.

In talking earlier about the Texas Ranger's guns,
I was standing next to a Ranger in Austin,Texas
about 6 years ago. He had 1911s cocked and locked on
each hip. Quite a sight to see. Reminds me of a quote I heard where an old man asked a Ranger if carrying his 1911 cocked and locked was dangerous, the Ranger replied, "I wouldnt carry the SOB if it wasnt." Texas Ranger Joaquin Jackson carried a 1911 .45 Commander. I am sure a few still carry the old 357 Magnum. The local county sheriff
here in TX carries a 8 3/8" S&W 25 in 45 Colt stuffed with
Silvertips on his hip backed by a 30-30 and a 12guage.
I know a few Rangers still carry a 30-30. From what I have read
they also like the AR15 and the Mini 14.

last time I checked, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was issuing the .40-caliber Glock. If sticking with the model set by other agencies, I would assume they offer a choice between the model 22 and 23.

Also not included: the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept (TPWD) who employess Texas' game wardens and park rangers, currently issue the .40-caliber Glock 22 as well. In addition to their sidearms, the wardens are also issued AR15-style rifles, though I am not sure of the make. It is possible to find some still carrying the older .223 Ruger Mini-14, but their sidearms will all be the same.

according to GLOCK magazine 2007 edition...The SC highway patrol is looking at switching to the Glock 37 as well as PA. As of now, the NYSP has switched to carrying the Glock 37 as has Georgia.

Maryland has switched to the Beretta Storm pistol .40S&W.

I'm going to have to argue with that. I would believe 1975, but not 1965. That is a Smith & Wesson Model 66, and it was not produced until 1972 or 1973. The early ones, like mine which I bought in 1974, had plain white (not red ramp) stainless steel front sights, and plain white (not black with white outline) stainless steel rear sights.

just looked at a picture of Kansas Highway Patrol- couldn't find Kansas State Police- and the KHP is definately carrying some type of Glock. It was a female officer so I'm not sure if it is indeed, the .45 as the list suggests, or another variant.

I confirm the change that Rack Ops says. They did go to the M&P .40. But they have the option to stay with the 10MM if it was issued to them before the change. All new state Kentucky State Police do not have the option they have to carry the M&P .40.

WVSP Didn't take the S&W MP because they aren't accurate, well at least the .45 isn't, I guess.

Yes, I know it's not a State Agency. How about an "All Agency" list?

Edit: I wonder what The Texas Rangers carry?



Last Ranger I saw was carrying two 1911s cocked and locked.
Most either carry 1911s or Sig 220, 226.
