Lets, see, I have been doing this for better than 16 years, and in that time I have worked for several departments and gone through several transitions. I have never been able to carry anything other than an issued gun anywhere I have worked full-time. I had one part-time gig where I could carry anything I wanted.
From first through to the present:
Beretta 92SB 9x19mm, 2 years
HK USP40C .40 S&W, 3.5 years
SIG-Sauer P226 9x19mm, 1 year
S&W 6946 9x19mm, 1.5 years
Glock 22 Gen3 .40 S&W, 2 years
S&W M&P40 .40 S&W, 1.5 years
Beretta 96FS .40 S&W, 2 years
Glock 23 RTF2 .40 S&W, 2.5 years and counting
I worked a part-time gig in addition to my full-time job from 2007-2010. I carried my own S&W M&P45 .45 ACP there.
