Hello GT, I am looking into applying for FLPD and I am curious to know what sidearm they carry. I have friends from other departments who have been to FLPD hq and they said that a lot of officers were carrying the HK USP. I googled FLPD HK usp and some searches came back stating that FLPD issues the HK usp .40 but this is not confirmed. I have heard many times that FLPD has an approved firearm list and DOES NOT ISSUE ANY SIDEARM. Even the application states that the department issues all gear with the exception of the service weapon, shoes, and handcuffs. I have also seen pictures of FLPD officers with what looks to be like a compact Glock, as well as 1911s, S&W Semi Autos, and Berettas. It looks like the officers are young too so I don't know about grandfathering in. Here's even a recent video posted in 2010 on YouTube where a FLPD officer confirms this list of approved firearms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLTDrUiREag&feature=youtube_gdata_player My questions are: 1. Does anyone know what firearms are on this list? 2. Can you carry your own gun off duty? I'm not too big a fan of the HK usp. I'm a Glock guy. I shoot my Glock 22 like no other and I train with it all the time since I carry a G27 for CCW. I was hoping I can have the G22 as my duty gun. Any thoughts? Thanks!
