    Does anyone knoe which high profile firearms instructors carry the G19? I've heard that Andy Staffors still carries one, and Dave Spaulding who also teaches firearms and writes for Guns And Weapons for Law Enforcemant switched from a USP40 to a G19. Anyone else?

    BRAVHART, I my book I would count you, more so then the others listed, just because when you are training any one in Iraq or even just being in Iraq you are a big target 24X7.

    Has anybody trained with Dave Spaulding? I hear he's an excellent firearms instructor. Was wondering if he has a website. I was just curious about his choice of carry weapons. I read that he had been very loyal to the HK USP 40 cal then went to the USP 9, and now he carries a custom G19. Wondering why he went from the HK to the Glock. Maybe his department switched over.

    I am a LOW profile instructor. I am a state leo. I carry a G21 at work and a G19 (among others)when off. Many of the top IPSC shooters in my state (leo and civ )I know carry G19s or 1911s.

    My wife and I are both Firearms Instructors, our company Personal Security Consultants provides defensive firearms training at Anthony Arms Indoor Range in West Mifflin, PA.

    We are both using Glock 19.

    James Yeager and many of the Tactical Response Inc. instructors carry the 19.

    Andy Stanford and many of the OPS instructors carry the 19.

    There are quite a few more, but none come to mind right now.

    When I was in the Corps I shot expert with the 1911 45's.
    When the switch came over to the Beretta FS92 9mm came out had to reqaulify and shot still expert but better and didn't need to reload as much.
    I own a Beretta Brig. and My tricked out 19.[​IMG]
