  • Fire arms recommendations for security officers

    I used to work security as an armed security officer and felt comfortable with a Glock19 9mm pistol with a Threat Level 3 holster.
    Some of you might know better.
    If so, what are your recommendations?
    Observe and report what you saw with a good flashlight.

      The Glock is a fine pistol. The best gun for the job is the one that feels best to you (everyone's hand is different), is reliable, and one which you can hit your target with. Some people will say that a 9mm is to small, but I certainly do not want to be shot with one, and with good modern hollowpoints, the difference is minimal. Another consideration you may have, depending on where you work, is overpenetration. It shouldn't be a big problem with the 9mm.

        Actually, over penetration depends more on the type of ammo than it does on caliber. Because ball ammo does not expand upon contact, it is more likely to over penetrate than hollowpoint ammo is.

            Our company won't even allow ball ammo because of the penetration and working in crowded areas.
