    Straight M4 or does it have an optics and illumination package?

    No matter what anyone says about a wheelgun, the 15 was one of the most accurate weapons I ever carried. I still have one that I've shot for over 30 years, still works like a top. Of course the first semi I carried was a S & W 52 I believe, wasn't worth a damn.

    I'm not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me. The P99 was a joint project between Walther & S&W.. (Hence the SW99 being a barrel-heavy, slightly uglier brother to the P99.. lol) So it's not like Walther does everything on their own. It's nice & easy to shoot though... Draw, fire, (repeat if necessary), then hit the Decocker button and reholster..

    When I was first shopping for a sidearm, the guys at the local shop let me 'test-hold' just about everything they had to see which ones I liked.. I had talked to a bunch of other Officers, and the general concensus was that because the company didn't have a required brand/style of weapon, I should get the one that felt the most comfortable in my hand...
    After about 45 minutes, I had ALMOST decided on a Sig, when the guy brought the P99 and SW99 down... The SW was too barrel heavy, but I fell instantly in... ehh... love(?) with the P99...

    When I went in for my armed cert, the instructor threatened to steal it from me... Apparently he'd heard a lot of good things about it... I love shooting it, and haven't regretted the decision in the slightest..

    When I carried, it was a Walther P99... One in the chamber at all times. Didn't have a safety, just a decocker. So in a manner of speaking, my safety was off as well. I won't go lower than a lvl 3 holster.
    The instructors I've had over the years recommend safety-off carry, for the reason you mentioned. Not only because of the extra time to swipe the safety, but also the possibility of missing it completely in the heat of the moment. Better to be able to draw & shoot, rather than trying to articulate a safety in a split-second situation.

    And yes, we have to furnish all our own gear.

    I think I used it after you were finished with it . Back in the mid 70's when I was working as a student patroller with the Campus Security we used the real old CB walkie-talkies. No rubber ducky antennas then. We had telescopic metal ones. They were about 4 feet long when extended. You'd have to duck to get through a doorway!

    Do you remember the 1st "portable" cell phones. Bigger than a brick! My boss had one. Before that I knew a news reported who had a "portable phone". It worked on the system they used to have in cars. (Did not work on a cell system). It was bigger than a shoe box!

Then I'd pull out my "back in my day" storybook and show them my Model 15 Combat Masterpiece with swivel holster and thumb strap, dump pouches, Sam Browne belt and wooden Tommy Knocker. Capstun?

    Strange requirement when carrying the 9mm Berreta is, one in the chamber, safety "off" and gun in a class III retention holster. Not to my likeing, having the safety off, but I didn't make the rules.

    Nothing like "old school". mh892 do you do all of your shooting double action?

    I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 but only when I'm off duty. On duty is an unarmed post.
