Issued a used Glock 23, used for 9 years by me.
Issued a new Glock 22, current use about 2 years.

Someone brought that up at a shooting I was involved in. I said he should have stopped. They said "what about Garner v. Tennessee."? I told them, " his name ain't Garner and we ain't in Tennessee!"

I carried a S&W M&P9 for 2.5 years at my first agency and now a G22 for the past 6 months at my 2nd agency. Good gun but nothing fancy.

Springfield XD .40 1 year
Glock 31 w/.40 barrel 5 years
Sig P220 ST 6mos
Back to the 31 2 years
Glock 21 1 year
Back to the 31 but changed to .357 Sig

I have fallen in love with .357 and pan on sticking with it for the rest of my career. Will get a 17 and probably alternate between the two but I am done switching guns.

I'll finish my ninth year next week. In rough order, I have carried the following:

Glock 19 Gen 2
Glock 22 Gen 3
Glock 23 Gen 3
Kimber TLE/RL II
Sig P226 9MM
Springfield Pro
Glock 21SF Gen 3
Browing Hi-Power (Yost Custom)
Glock 22 RTF2

I switched back and forth between the G23 and 1911s quite a bit for a while in there. Probably carried a G23 for three years and a 1911 for just a hair longer. Currently mandated to carry the G22 RTF2 at the new gig. Have never shot the full size Glock 9/40 frame well, so would greatly prefer even just the ability to carry the 23 or a personally owned Gen 4, but alas I don't think that's happening any time soon.

I've also carried the following BUGs:

Kel-Tec P3AT
Glock 27
Smith and Wesson 642
Ruger LCP

Currently using the 642 as an on-duty backup and the LCP as off-duty backup.

Ruger GP-100 with .38+P loads for a year and a half with my first agency (state corrections).

Beretta 92D Vertec for a little over a year and counting, federal corrections.
