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.

Well-used Sig 226 w/Rail-6 Months (Mandated)

What I'm convinced is the first Gen 3 G22, well-used G22-4 years this week! (Mandated)

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.

Here the Lock Shop, or those above him are keeping us with the old Rugers. They have been getting them refurbished a little at a time. Reliable, bulky, and strong. It's like carrying a metal block on the hip. But, it will eat about any ammo that is given, as long as the maintenance is kept up.

I forget why some of the older institutions switched over, whereas others did not.

S&W M65-2 years

M&P 40-5 years so far

The M65s were total pieces of crap. Nothing like their predecessors before the changes in design. After a few early issues, mostly mag-related, the M&P 40s have been excellent guns.

I dunno either, but I shoot the Berettas a hell of a lot better than I shot the Ruger P95DAOs at Glynco.
