Duty Guns

With over 8 years working as a Police Officer I wouldn't consider myself an old timer, however I'm now on my 3rd duty gun. What's your duty gun history? My history:


1. G17: 5 years
2. G35: 3 years
3. G22: 1 month



Thanks for replies.

Not that I'm THAT old, but my first duty weapon (prior department) was a S&W Model 10, 4" 38.Spl. I carried that for the first 12 years, then a S&W 5946 / 9mm when we switched to semi-auto's, which I carried for 8 years until I retired. On my current department, I was issued a Glock 23 for the first 8 years, then a Glock 22 which I've had for the last 3 years.

When I started, we could carry most anything. I carried a Colt 1911. Dabbled with a Sig P220. Finally got a Wilson Master grade built and carried it until about 13 years ago. Issued a Glock 35, carried it for 12 years, just got new Glock 22's.

I'm allowed to carry anything on duty that I want to as long as its the issued Glock 22. No complaints, its a perfectly good duty gun, but, back when we carried our own guns, cops had a little more personality. We had Govt models, browning High Powers, revolvers in .38-.44's. A few Smith autos and a smattering of those new fangled Sig Sauers.

Started out with an old department issued Smith & Wesson Model 67 Stainless Steel .38 Special revolver.

Went to Glock next and never looked back. First was a 22 and then a 23 when I went in the detective bureau. Just upgraded to a Generation 4 and have the small backstrap on it. It feels even better in my hand. Less recoil too.

Let's see:

Sig P228 - 3 years
Para LDA 7.45- 1 year
H&K USP 45 - 2 years
Glock 23 - 4 years

And I will be very shortly going to a Springfield Armory XD 45 Tactial, which I bought cheap. I haven't worked out with it too much, but I'm optimistic. I'll post up my thought when I've got some time with it on my hip.
