What would you carry as your primary sidearm if you were a police officer/federal agent?
Depends on what they issue.
Ideally, i'd narrow it down to a P229 .357 or .40, Glock 23 or 22, USP45, or a SW 4006 and pick from there depending on whatever my whimsical reasons for which one would "go" with the uniform better. Also would depend on what they're authorizing you to carry.
Ditto what kellyclan said. One other gun I'd be tempted to use if possible would be a CZ 75 .40. That frame just sits in my hand perfectly, and it's a very solid, well-made gun.
1) Glock 22, 31
2) Sig 229
1) Glock 27, 33
Primary: SA 1911 TRP
SIG 229 in .357 SIG.
Backup: .380 PPK
An easily disposable and concealable multi-shot .22 or .22 mag revolver. Leave no trace.
"We are out of ammo". Said in the first 15 seconds of the video ... Nothing else needed to be said. Correct control and shot placement will beat "spray and pray" every time. US figured that out in Viet Nam, and went to select fire three round max after that CF of wasted ammo ....
Full auto pistols are a joke.
Select fire (3 round burst) Glock 17 with a collapsible stock.
Select fire not a bad idea. Add a stock to any pistol, make sure you get the SBR stamp. Exceptions are out there for old pistol/carbines. I personally would like an artillery Luger with the holster which also served as a detachable butt stock. Antique. Not subject to the stamp law.
We carry the SW 45 which has been great. No complaints.
End result of all the other gear, asp, OC, Taser.
A gun is a tool, I'd carry the tool that is best for the job. "A federal agent" is a broad term, from someone who works at the Secret Service to someone who arrests fugitives.
I personally carry a Beretta 96F.
Glock 17 here
P229 with Dak trigger is worst shooting pistol I have ever shot. Dry fired the P320 a few times and fills very nice. Glock 26 with 15+1 all day is a great carry.......
I own an SBR and 2 cans, so yea, well aware of the definitions. But being an LEO, per the thread title, different rules, and USUALLY NFA doesn't apply.
When does NFA not apply to personally owned and carried weapons? LEO or not? Educate me.
LEO gets special status when it comes to NFA. They deal with different paperwork, and get a writeoff for the hughes amendment if it's a duty gun. Personal stuff still applies to civilian NFA though.
Thank you for the clarification. That's what I thought.
Probably a Glock 17 or more preferably a HK USP 45. The sidearm is not important though, you always have to have a sawn-off 12 gauge shotgun in your boot.
If you can stick a sawn-off 12 gauge shotgun in your boot, You are either really sawing the shit off of them, or you wear a size 30 boot!
2.5" S&W 500 mag
if I have to fire my weapon we all going down
Picture of said weapon? If you fire it, we may all be going down, but what is left of your hand and arm may be experiencing terminal velocity ...
This made me LOL and my wife is watching one of those Desperate House Wife shows and turned to give me the face
