    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.

  5. 1998 - Colt 1911 1 year
    1999 - Glock 21 6 years
    2005 - HK USP .45 3 years
    2008 - Glock 21 2 years
    2010 - Glock 35 1 year
    2011 - Glock 21 1 year and current

  6. 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.

    2004, G22
    2007, P220R
    2008, Colt 1991A1

    Long guns

    1997 HK MP5 10MM (sorry about the ozone layer)

  11. 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.

    Where is this happening at?
  13. 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.

    NOT the PNW (yet)
    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>...
  15. What reliability issues as your dept been having with the XD's?

    There are a lot of guys here with less than 10 years on who have had a whole bunch of different pistols.....

    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.
