    Authorized and issued are not always the same. Many agencies issue one brand and authorize several. That is normally decided by the
    F T U.

    I am talking as a retired Lt. of the NYPD. The duty weapons are ISSUED to the recruits after they choose from the three listed.

    The off duty weapons are AUTHORIZED for purchase by MOS at their own expense.

    Forgive me if I wasn't clear enough the first time.

    Any reason behind the Glock 19 and not using the Glock 17? Just curious...

    I asked that question, why G19 over G17. I'm sure someone will correct me but it came down to ammo issue.

    G19: 3 x 15 + 1 = 46 or one box of ammunition.
    G17: 3 x 17 = 1 = 52 or more than one box of ammunition.

    Over the 25 or 30 thousand cops in NYPD who carry Glocks, that's a LOT of extra ammunition to have to issue.

    I could very well be wrong, but that officer's theory made sense to me at the time.

    Believe it or not they didn't want any of the issued duty weapons to have a different magazine capacity. That's the reason we were given. If you were on the NYPD you would understand that often the most illogical answer is the correct one.


    And for the record, Dragoon's first issue weapon was a caveman club.:rofl:

    I hope thats an age reference and not a hypocritical bigot reference. I don't get the impression that Dragoon is a hypocrite or a bigot... but I kinda got that vibe from Strom, go figure! :wow:
