If you are/were a cop, what would be your duty pistol preference?
I think its pretty interesting (as a fairly new shooter) to see the progression of duty pistols over the last 40 years or so. So, all things considered which of the guns below would you choose and why? Obviously this covers ALL trigger actions which all have their respective advantages/disadvantages.
-Smith & Wesson revolver model 14 or 15 in .38 spl
-Beretta 92 series
-HK USP45 or 9mm
-Glock 17, 19, 21, 22, 23, 35 (9mm, .40, or .45)
-Springfield XD9 or XD40
Im sure I missed a few but these seem to be the most popular agency-issued duty guns over the last 40 or so years. I would personally choose the Glock23 ALL THINGS CONSIDERED for its striker fired trigger, accuracy, dependability, capacity and the compromise in power between 9mm and .45 by choosing the .40 cartridge
