    What would you carry as your primary sidearm if you were a police officer/federal agent?

    Depends on what they issue. :p



    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.

    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 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.
