My last duty was as a Deputy Sheriff, My Office had a list of authorized weapons and authorized duty caliber. My choice was a Para P-16 high cap 40 S&W. I had adj. Night Sights and a Hoage Rubber Grip added. This was my third 1911 that I have carried on duty. It was and still is one of the guns that I currently qualify with on my National Concealed Weapon Permit. Never had a problem with this weapon, it just works and thats all that matters.
