I truly believe that requirung a 12 lb pull can do nothing but make your shooting less accurate. I don't care how many rounds you put through the gun. You may get better by practicing but you will never have the accuracy you will with a weapon with the correct trigger pull.

Some bureacrat that never had to use a weapon , or probably never fired one decided that would prevent accidental discharges or something

I remember back in 91 when I lived in Tx, a lot of texas rangers carried a 1911 tucked in the front of their waistband.

The voices in my head don't like you.

I carried a glock 17 9mm for 6 years and loved it. Super light,accurate, only had to carry 2 extra magazines, and almost indestructible.

Now I've carried an HK p2000 for the last 4. It's a good gun but I just hate the trigger reset and the fact I have to carry 4 extra mags on my belt.

Eh to each his own right? I only carried 2 mags. . 3 total of 12 rounds. If I need more then that I would have grabbed the M4 out of the trunk of the unit. A police officer will never truly know a situation but needs the skills to quickly asses what he needs for tools. That being said, getting extra mags ready and unclipping the clasp and having back up gun ready

I carry a Sig P226 stainless in .357sig. It is the best handgun I have ever used and has performed flawlessly in my "times" of need. However our department recently added Glock transition schools for those that wish to change. After a few back surgeries following an OIS I find my Sam Browne a bit heavy and a pain in the back. I found out the Glock chambered in the same caliber is a full pound lighter than my Sig. So I'm trying scrounge up the $$$ to get one.

Just this week we had court for the appeal hearing for POS that killed my friend and fellow officer B. Jackson in the shooting. He is grasping at straws to try to get his death sentence overturned. His argument is that he is retarded.... he is not retarded, just a stupid illegal that should have never been here.
I will say this, you can never have too many rounds when someone is shooting a .357 mag at you from 8 feet, training and self preservation take over! Be safe!

Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope justice is served that the POS gets what he deserves. RIP for all the fallen officers.

Mike. Sorry to hear about all that. We had an officer murdered a few years ago, and the pos tried the same thing about the mental incompetency bs. Try to stay positive for your fallen brother.

PROfane- not sure which model Glock you had. We just got new Gen 4's and they are nice. We had some guys that just couldn't qualify and the slight changes definitely helped. I'm a Glock guy, but that's all I know so I'm not knocking others.

Might be off topic a bit, but wanted to take a minute and write up a thank you for those in law enforcement. Military (former Marine here) and firefighters seem to be taking up all the recognition and media, but law enforcement always seems to get the negative sides.

Even those that don't like law enforcement (yes, I had plenty of run ins in the past, known by first name among many in different states), always will call police when something I call a life changing event happens.

Ton of respect for all of you out there, underpaid, never recognized, and over worked.

TEAM SLO Thanks for 2014'

Ill be honest, new officers got the old gen 2 beat up ones. My dad has a some and my wife has a few. Like i said before, fine pistol just not for me. I rather carry a sig pro over any other polymer.

The M&P seems to be more gentle with .40 and .45 than others. Tossed a G19 after buying the 9c model.
