LEOs, which sidearm does your dept. issue?

Along the lines of the issued ammo question, which pistol does your dept. issue?
Are you allowed to carry anything other than dept. issue, and if so, what do you carry?

My dept issues no weapons, all are officer purchased.

Last I checked, there was one Sig P220 (mine), A Kimber Match STainless (Chief), a G31, three G35s, 4 G22s, couple of g17s, a Springfield XD40, and a couple of Smith Mod 66s.

Dept issue is the Beretta and Glock, SERT members allowed to carry whatever they want. (Basically). I carry a custom built Springfield 1911.

Don't mean to horn in. Where I live, 07676, issued is .40 S&W. They liked the previous 9mm better.

The dept. issues G-23s. I carry my own G-22. However we can carry whatever we wish as long as it's .40 S&W.

Glock 17 or 22, Officer's choice. However, we can carry anything we want that our Range Officer approves (any quality firearm of a substantial caliber.)

I carry a Glock 21.

Remington 870s ride in our squads, and each officer is issued a Ruger Mini-14. Individually owned rifles are allowed, but must be approved by the Range Officer. 5.56NATO, 30-30 and 7.62X39 are allowed (in addition to pistol calibers.)

Sig P220

Dept issues Sig P220 to patrol...Thank God
Admin & chief gets SIG compact .40's, I forget which model #.
You can carry your personal if it's approved, no single action unfortunately.
Moss 500's up front and approved rifle in the rear, normally AR variant or some MAK 90's.

Issued firearms are:
Glock 22
Glock 23 for senior command and investigations if we want a 23 instead of 22
Remington 870
Patrol rifles are either Colt or Bushies.

For uniform only the Glock 22 or 23 can be carried. For plain clothes/covert then authorization has to be given to carry something different than issued.
Authorized off duty/covert/second guns have to be .380 or larger, at least 5 shot, qualify once a year, HP ammo only, and be approved by the range officer and district commander.

Sig Sauer P229 - .357. No reported quality issues, everyone loves them (everyone b*tched about the previous S&W 1046's). I am completely confident that it is going to work if I need it, can't say that about the S&W's.

The only thing my dept. issues is AR-15's. I also have a issued Rem LTR in 308. Duty pistol is a G-35. Our Chief has a 35 too with Glock 17's and 22's being the rest with 1 HK USP in .40. We can carry a .45 ACP, .40 or 9mm in anything that the Chief and I agree is OK. I carried a 1911 before I discovered the 35.

Nothing issue. You must provide your weapons and it must be on the approved list. That list includes 1911's.
