    What Gun Does Your Department Use

    What department are you with and what gun does your department issue you to use as your side arm? Are there any other firearms you are permitted to carry while on duty?

    We are issued the Glock 22; we have the option to have night sights and a tac light. Plainclothes can carry a 23 or 27.

    2008 marked the year that the MSP rolled out the SIG P226R-DAK (.40) to the field to replace their fleet of SIG P226 DA/SA (.40). Plain clothes and command officers can be issued a SIG P229R-DAK instead of the 226.



    The MSP also issues all its members the Smith & Wesson Model 640 (.357 Magnum) as a BUG.



    For long guns we have Colt 6920's and Remington 870's.

    Northern California Probation Department...Glock 22 or 23. Used to be able to carry my Kimber Pro Carry...but we went to a one weapon platform six years ago. It was tough going from a 1911 to a Glock...but I've learned to love the ugly thing!! She ain't pretty...but truly indestructible...and never fails.

    issued is sig p220 with night sights and crimson trace grips, a remington 870, and colt m16a2 if the armory has one.

    we are permitted to carry a different firearm as long as the brand and caliber is on the fairly large approved list. i chose to tuck away all the issued guns in my safe and not carry any firearm issued by the agency.

    Primary weapon must be .45 caliber. We are issued Red Dot carry ammo.

    BUG can be anything we want.

    Our agency has recently adopted the one gun principal.

    Uniform duty: Glock 22 or 23.
    Plain clothes: 22,23 or 27.

    Secondary weapon: 22,23 or 27.
    Our agency does not currently issue secondary weapons and does not issue 27's at all. If you want a secondary, you must purchase and qaulify with it.

    I currently carry the 22 and the 27 as a secondary.

    You may opt to carry a Remington 870 Shotgun(Agency issued) or purchase your own patrol rifle. The only model patrol rifle approved is the AR-15 .223 Colt, Bushmaster or Rock River. Again, you must qualify annually to carry.

    Uniformed patrol carry the Beretta 90two in 9x19, lights required and laser optional. Plainclothes, detectives and sdministration can carry whatever.

    Our S.O.P. forbids use of a backup weapon.

    I bought an IAC Hawk model 982 12 gauge shotgun. Was half the cost of the Remington 870.


    I would have went with a Remington, Mossberg, or Ithaca 37, cant beat these weapons for reliability..

    I do not know the track record of the Interstate Arms S/G's

    Glock 22. Light is optional. No other duty weapons are permitted.

    A BUG is optional. It must be department-approved (on a case-by-case basis), personally-purchased, and the officer must qualify with it.

    Sig Sauer P229, .40 S&W, with night sights and rail-mounted flashlight

    Remington 870 shotguns (for those with no AR's)

    And for people that go through the training, Colt AR-15's, and then modified Remington 870's that shoot bean-bag rounds for less-lethal
