    Keinharr carries a 1911 I think. We carry a .45 S & W. Old...P.O.S. I'm not a big fan of Glock's. However I've only fired two and they were fairly old models. I just purchased a .38 S&W for my secondary weapon. Where I'm looking to transfer to now we purchase our own weapons with an allowance and I'm thinking of a .40 Beretta Storm. That gun is the heat.

    That would be hard to tell because pple will call any black gun that looks GLOCKish a Glock.

    But on an intresting note I was crusing a ghetto porn site and one of the vids had the "producres" all pulling out their guns. They all had Glock 19s. In a gang video that was shown on the news here, after a rash of violent activity from a rape in broad day light to shootings, all the "thugs" in the video had Glocks.

    Well, yeah, it rhymes with so many words when rapping: block, rock, sock, cock, knock, unlock, shock, jock... So many more words than can be rhymed with Smith & Wesson.

    Many departments also go with Glock because we can get them very inexpensivly. For a Glock 22, with 3 mags and night sites, our department price is less than $400. Hard to beat.

    50-60% of all law enforcement sales is about the right figure.

    Glock gives a very nice discount to the law enforcement agencies. That, plus Glocks are easy to operate, easy to maintain (field stripping takes but seconds), and the reliability is ironclad, provided that you don't limpwrist them.

    Even detail stripping is relatively easy, and can be done by anyone with at least a handful of operational brain cells. Those who work as armorers for the agencies will tell you, that Glocks and their simplicity are what makes them ideal.

    The rest of the market is split between Sig Arms, Heckler and Koch, Smith and Wesson, and to a much lesser extent, Ruger / Colt / Springfield. Then again, I've only seen a few rural agencies that were so poor, that they equipped their guys with Ruger P89 pistols... Not a bad choice in terms of getting a rock solid reliable gun, but they're unwieldy.

    If you have to buy your own firearm, do you also have to buy your own ammo for training and practice, or does the department cover that?

    Good question. My dept pays for most our things including our weapon, but we have to supply our own practice rounds, etc.
