Question about HCC Police Academy

Post by Droknows » Thu May 19, 2011 10:38 am

I was thinking about signing up. Just a quick question tho. Does anyone know what handgun they use in the HCC academy? I figure its a Glock, but I just wanted to see if anyone knew.

I dont think there is a standard one. I know guys from my department (tampa fire) that go through have used different ones. One guy used a glock 17. Another used TPD issue M&P 40. Still another used Tampa fire issue beretta 92. I think the requirements are more about capacity and I'm pretty sure no SAO. I'll speak with the most recent grad and find out for sure later.

*update*
Just spoke with him. He said they give you a pretty big list, but couldnt remember the exact criteria. No sub compacts. 9 or 40. and he said pretty much all the major brands were on there, Glock, sig, s&w, HK, etc...

Good luck if you decide to do it.
