Duty/Service Pistols: What did you use, how did you like it?
It seems every firearm enthusiast has a niche. Some love World War 2 rifles, some love bolt rifles, some love classic revolvers.
My passion has always been the duty pistols. Even though these are often less than glamorous polymer pistols dictated by cost and maintenance, I have been interested in the day-to-day sidearm that men and women who serve depend on, or depended on in the past. Revolvers and semis are included in this mix.
It has been a while since we had one of these threads, Whether it was a Glock 22, a Smith & Wesson Model 10, or a Beretta 96, and whether you served as a security guard, police officer, or in the armed forces, and whether you loved or hated the gun and why, post your stories here if you care to.
