Smith and Wesson 4006 TSW - 1.5 years

Smith and Wesson M&P40 - 4.5 years and counting.

I have my 4006 still. It was like new when we switched. Boat anchor of a gun, but it worked.

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.

1988 NJSP academy issue: H&K P7M8 (I still remember the serial number). Carried the P7M8 for 12 years.

Then we switched to the wretched (at the time) S&W 99. Carried that for about six months, maybe a little less. The first one I was issued didn't work. The second one was okay, had tool marks on the feed ramp, but at least worked. Then we sent the Smiths back to Smith & Wesson.

The replacement for the SW99 was the Sig P228, which we still carry today. At the time our Superintendent was a retired FBI agent. Since the Smiths didn't work it was almost a given that we transitioned to the Sig. I think given the choice most troops would have rather stayed with the P7M8.

Actual uniformed duty? G22 to G21 to G34.

Other alternate guns included a Colt Official Police revolver for dress occasions and a stainless Beretta 92FS just because it looked so good in a holster.

Duty pistol:

Springfield Armory XD40 Service (issued).

Long gun:

Bushmaster Patrolman's Carbine (issued).

We were supposedly going to start issuing XD(M) pistols over the next few years, but I think the budget has nixed that. I'm going to suggest personally-owned pistols (optional) as we have no functioning spare XD's and our recent range session revealed some reliability issues with our current guns <sigh>...

2001-2002 Sig P226 9mm (dept. issue at 1st agency)
2002-2008 Gen 3 G22 Duty, w/ G27 BUG
2009-2011 Springfield TRP Operator (LOVE this gun)
2011-Current Gen 4 G22 w/ Gen 4 G27 (dept. made me switch)

Althought I love my SA TRP 1911, the reliability of a Glock is comforting.
