My neighbor, a Captain for Southwest Air, just completed the pilots' handgun training course in Arizona. They are issued an HK USP .40 caliber and the lockbox with a combo lock - he bought a nice Kevlar carry case - he showed me his outfit. It's loaded with issue semi-jacketed hp (not frangible - they are in no way worried about puncturing the fuselage). BTW - HK has made the pilots a private offer of the same type of gun for $500, including 2 extra mags. I told him to jump on that deal.
