I think the LSP is still using the Sig 220 .45 in standard DA action. They have issued that for awhile now. I havn
t spoken to one about it since I switched jobs a few years ago, but that was what they carried then.

NCSHP uses the Beretta Cougar in .357 Sig. First shot is DA, subsequent are SA. Some folks are issued AR15's and all are issued Beretta 12 gauge shotguns--model 1201

Bastia,I've already scanned the list you provided and I'm sure it's going to be very helpful. Could you please advise its source and/or how current it is? A few of those you show conflict with information of which I myself have direct knowledge. Just wanting to get it right with the help of you and other forum members. Thanks.

I havent looked but are you sure that the listing for Kentucky is correct? I thought S&W ditched all 10's (esp. the 1076) when the FBI told them to get farked.

Chinchilla,

The Kentucky State Police has, indeed, recently gone to the Glock 35 in .40 S&W after 10 years when the S&W 1076 in 10mm was their issue for uniformed carry.

Admittedly, they went to the 1076 about the time the FBI was dropping it so the wisdom of choosing the 1076 in the first place might have seemed questionable. However, the experience the KSP had with the 1076 was good as they loaded them with the more potent original velocity rounds as opposed to the FBI- Lite medium velocity rounds.

The deal was that S&W would provide parts for the 1076s for only 10 years and, as that time was about to expire, the KSP knew they had to make a change even though they had several unissued, brand- new -in -the box, 1076s still on hand. S&W offered an even trade for all the 900+ 1076s in exchange for new S&Ws in .40 S&W caliber and it looked for a while like that was going to happen. Reasoning, though, that they needed to maintain as much weapons commonalty as possible they ultimately chose the Glock Practical-Tactical model as the Troopers already had Glock 27s and had training with the Glock system.

NY State Troopers use the .45GAP. And I am fairly certain the UT Troopers have the Glock 22.

I'm seeing some old, out dated information. To the best of my knowledge, Indiana Troopers switched from the Beretta to Glock 40's, but the rumor mill is saying a switch to FN or Sig Sauer is imminent.

That list appears a bit dated. Wisconsin State Patrol switched from Ruger to Glock 22/23 probably 10 years ago.

NOTE:
The FBI S&W 1076 is different from all other 1076's. The FBI insisted on their trigger design, which S&W told them would not work. They insisted, and signed a release with S&W. The FBI 1076's would lock up - round in the chamber, safety off, the round could not be fired, nor extracted! The bureau developed Kevlar pouches so the loaded guns could be sent back to S&W.
The commercial S&W 1076 used the S&W trigger system, with no problems.
The FBI blamed S&W, who made available the release - the FBI threatened Smith to shut up, or never again sell a gun to the Bureau.
( I had friends who worked at S&W at the higher levels at the time.)

And that is how it is in the big city. FBI has influence. If I had a product I would have the FBI recommend it and every department in the country will jump on the bandwagon. :rolleyes:

Mass State Police carries the M&P 45s now and Conn State carries Sig 226 in 45ACP. Because of the lower round count in the SIGs as opposed to the M&P45 or Glock 21, Connecticut Troopers carry a triple stack mag pouch on their belts. I have seen a Ct. trooper carrying a 1911 with the hammer cocked back instead of a SIG so there must be some provision to allow carrying that weapon. Maybe SWAT but not sure.

Sig 226 does not come in 45 ACP so I guess you mean the Sig 220? (other option is Sig 227 with a higher round count in 45)
