Do any police departments issue the Glock 36?

    As a primary duty weapon, I doubt it. Perhaps as a agency issued off duty weapon.

    Capacity is too small I think.

    G36 is more for concealed carry. LEO can carry openly, if anything I think they would run G21s if they wanted .45ACP.

    I could only see detectives wearing them....Not enough rounds for duty use. I'd think they'd issue G30's before G36's.

    Thanks guys I was thinking and meant to say if they were issued to detectives or plain clothes officers.

    Would be the only ones I could see doing it. I've seen many places that plain clothes/admin are issued G27's so a G36 wouldn't be out of the question. That said, I've never heard of it.

    that seven rounds of .45 ACP is not good enough for a primary carry firearm.

    Our issued duty weapons are 21sf's, and are Investigators (CID) are also issued 36's for plain clothes work.

    The Pennsylvania and New York State Police issue the Glock 37 in .45 GAP to Troopers and the Glock 39 .45 GAP for plainclothes and off duty use. The G37 is the same size as the G23 and has a 10 round magazine capacity; the G36 magazine is only 6 rounds.

    Funny thing, six rounds of .38 spl SWC (NOT JHP) was good enough for generations of NYPD Officers. They were not even permitted speed loaders until Scott Gadell was killed by a perp with a 9mm while he was reloading.
    That being said, I know the world moves on.

    But hitting what you are shooting at is the most important thing.
    Always was, always will be.

    Not true, the G23 is smaller. The G37 is roughly the same size as a G22, only with a wider slide.

    I wouldn't want only 7 rounds as a cop. No way I would want to engage multiple BGs with that few.
