    As a retirement gift I got a Sig P220 .45 ACP. I just can't get over how smooth that thing is to fire. Early in the AF we carried the Colt 1911A-1. I used to laugh because the head stamp read FA 1946.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    No. Don't tell 'em or I'll get "soaked" with a fine and a permit fee.

    Absolutley SP I love my sig its the 229 in 40, also have the 357 sig barrel for it. Just drop in the barrel and shoot different caliber its like having 2 guns and the mags are the same. I also have a little Glock 27 which is ab absolute dream to shoot and conceal, esp. w/night sights on it. I am a big boy with big ole hands and the 27's a bit snappy but nothing that cant be controled.

    I carried a Sig for a lot of years, P226 9mm and then a .40. They are very good guns. I have put thousands of rounds through the 9mm and hundreds through the .40, both without any malfunctions. But if you are looking for a conceal carry, I would go with a smaller frame like a P239.

We have to qualify twice a year with department sig 40's but we are not issued them they stay locked in the armory. Generally everyone has there own and carries them off duty. We still have to qualify with state's sig even though we have our own. Dont always understand there reasons though.
    I was actually thinking about picking up a Sig this weekend. Do you recommend?

    I am also unarmed but I think I rather be unarmed than to carry what wackenhut issues. Off duty I carry my Para ordnance SSP 1911 OR MY xd40or my glock 17. It all depends on how I feel that day.

    Lawson have you got an actual holster yet? or are you still using your s&w/h&K holster

    I have got my eye on a Glock model 26. Anyone ever had experience with them? I have heard they are difficult to handle with those with big hands and the sights are not very good. But then, most shoots are not more than 25 feet on anverage.

    Pinellas Sheriff issued you a Glock. If you didn't want to carry it, you had to purchase your own holster, your own weapon, your own mags. And give the Glock back.

    Now, the thing I thought funny was most agencies required you to purchase your own ASP. I can see purchasing your own boots, but not your own ASP. I was told it was due the fact some folks wanted a 16" baton (just to have on the belt, never used) and some wanted a 26" (people who used their batons.) PR-24s were no longer authorized.

    Exactly, same as a police dept, issue a gun when you're hired and take it away when you retire.
    Large and most medium sized police and Sheriff's departments in many places (that I am aware of) furnish weapons, but small departments usually don't. The 1st PD I worked for (town of 500 or so people) didn't furnish weapons. The one I work for now (college district) didn't either until last year (not we have an "armory", the district will Issue a Glock 22 now, I still carry my Beretta though).

    My Ex-girl friend had to buy her own weapon when she went to work for the Dallas County Constable. My half-sister is a Deputy Sheriff in California and had to buy her own if she didn't want to carry a department Issue .38 (this was back in the 80s when she got hired on). And My Wife's cousin is a Detention Deputy in Georgia and he had to buy his own as well , don't know if thats changed, haven't talked to the guy in a couple years.
