The Leading Glock Forum and Community - GlockTalk.com
I'll try to make this short, I've read lots of posts on the basic firearms that everybody should own.. ,
The list can be as small as "Combat Rifle, Long Range Rifle, 12 Gauge Shotgun, and Combat Pistol" Or it could include "Compact pistol, Revolver in Magnum, rifle in .22, and pistol in .22".

The FBI has relied on Glocks (in 7 different models) since 1997 to equip most of its agents both as primary and backup use but is now looking to change things up-- and the current stable of Austrian polymer seems like it can fit the bill. In short, the primary issue arm is currently the Glock 22 and 23 "FG&R" (finger groove and rail) with the 9mm 17/19 as an alternative. For backup and deep concealment, special agents as well as those on more administrative taskings (read= supervisors) are authorized "baby Glock" G26 and G27 subcompacts while SWAT-certified agents can carry a G21 in .45ACP. In almost all cases, those guns in service are 3rd Generation models.
Now the Bureau on Oct. 7, 2015 released a 110-page pistol solicitation request, all for...
