It depends on the departments budgets and mission requirements among other factors. Everything from lever-action rifles to .50 caliber sniper rifles are in use in the way of long guns. Remington, Mossberg, Winchester and Ithaca shotguns are all commonly found, with the Remington 970 being the most prevalent

Hanguns? You name a make and model, and it's probably being used somewhere, by someone.

One local PD is using my old Rock River/CavArms house gun. I'm so embarrassed.
