What does your department allow or issue?

Post by Oldskoolfan » Fri Apr 25, 2008 12:54 am

Just curious as to what department you are with and what they approve or issue?

Please list caliber as well as duty load.

I figured since this was a gun-board and all it would be interesting.

Fed....authorized weapons are SIGARMS P229 or P239 .40 S&W with Trijicon NS. Load is the Speer Gold Dot 165 grain JHP.

I switched from a P229 to the P239.

Prior duty guns were SIGARMS/Sig Sauer P228, P225, and/or P239 9mms. I carried a P228 with a short trigger.

Wakkoss....not for certain, but I think you thought I was a Federal Air Marshal? If so, no I'm not a FAM, who as you put it, carry 357 SIGs...in their case, P229's.

Current handguns are Glock .40s...previously there was quite a few guuns on the approved list including glocks, sigs, h&k, s&w. If you carried something from the old list you are still grandfathered in.

Ammo is Speer golddots.

This was years ago but-

SIG P229 40 caliber but for the life of me I cannot remember the load

There were a few wheel guns and some 1911s but those were grandfathered in.


This was before patrol rifles and we also had Rem 870s w/ SureFire fore-ends but I also dont recall the exact load, though it was 2 3/4 00

.45 ACP in Glock 21/30/36 models for patrol and court security. 9MM in Beretta for Corrections.

Gold Dot in 230 and 124 respectively. Both have proven to be good calibers and rounds.

Thanks for the replies so far. Would it be possible to tell others what department you are with, especially the Federal one. I have been planning on going to graduate school in Florida and am interested in applying with various federal agencies once I graduate. Thanks for all of the information so far.

I'm not an officer yet [-o< but the FWC carries G17 and I forget which round...I'm thinking some sort of Federal HST or something. Oh, they also have an AR15 in the truck.
