Glock recently started selling the G22 Rough Textured Frame Version 2 (RTF2), a pistol that is sure to be just as popular with cops as the standard version Glock pistol.

Kahr Arms P380 Subcompact Pistol

June 1, 2009

Kahr Arms just introduced a new subcompact pistol chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge. Weighing less than a pound loaded and only .75 inches wide, this new pistol is small and light enough that it should serve just about anyone's deep concealment and/or backup needs.

Handguns 2009

The question that I want to answer with this article is: What makes the Springfield Armory XD(M) a more suitable pistol for law enforcement work than the standard Springfield XD?

Kahr Arms CW45 Pistol

January 1, 2009

The newest fighting pistol in the Kahr line is CW45, chambered for…what else?…the .45 ACP. While it looks very similar to the earlier P45, the CW45 is intended as an economy model.

Maryland State Police to Carry Beretta’s Px4 Storm

May 8, 2008
The Maryland State Police has chosen the Beretta Px4 Storm to replace their Beretta 96D pistols. The department will issue 1,065 Px4 Storm D Model pistols in .40 S&W to its officers.

Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS)

April 1, 2008

I was really impressed with the 9mm model of the PPS. Its captive dual recoil spring and excellent ergonomics combine to make an extremely soft shooting pistol. In fact, it's the softest shooting subcompact pistol that I have ever tested.

Built around Beretta's latest Px4 Storm modular technology, the company's new Px4 Storm subcompact delivers concealed carry handling with large frame firepower.

Smith & Wesson has received an order from the Colorado State Patrol for 850 of the company's Military & Police (M&P) series of polymer pistols.

Taurus PT1911B Semi-Auto Pistol

October 1, 2007

The PT1911, like other handguns in the Taurus line, sports a lot of really nice "custom" features, it is made from high-quality components and, best of all, it's affordably priced at around $703. Here's my up close and personal look at this gun.

Para-Ordnance Carry 9 LDA

September 1, 2007

The Canadian firm of Para-Ordnance has been a trailblazer when it comes to improving the classic 1911 pistol. One of the company's most radical concepts is the Light Double Action (LDA) trigger mechanism, which can be found on its new Carry 9 LDA.

Are You Safer with a More Complicated Duty Weapon?

August 28, 2007
There are those that would have you believe that you are safer if your firearm is more complicated and there are those, I am one of them, who argue steadfastly against that assertion because the primary purpose of your firearm is self-defense or the defense of others.

Glock G21SF Semi-Automatic Pistol

July 1, 2007

Most officers who carry Glock pistols will know exactly what I mean when I say that the new Glock G21SF is "...just a Glock." But such flippancy should in no way be taken as a negative comment because one of the line's most positive features is that once you know how to use one Glock, you know how to use all of them.

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact Pistol

June 1, 2007

During my law enforcement career I never had a malfunction or a problem with any of the Smith & Wesson pistols that I owned or was issued. Needless to say, I like Smith & Wesson pistols.

Why I Like Smith & Wesson's M&P Pistol

May 7, 2007
I have gone on the record many times saying that a duty gun should be as simple as possible. Separately operated external safeties, de-cocking levers, and other “safety oriented” accouterments to pistols complicate training issues and slow down weapons handling.

Smith & Wesson SW1911PD Semi-Auto Pistol

March 1, 2007

I think that you'll have to agree that there is a certain amount of irony in seeing a 1911 wearing the S&W logo. After all, it was Colt that brought the gun to market and produced millions for the military and for civilian consumption. But S&W didn't just copy the original design. It has made some changes to the time-honored 1911 to update the gun.

SIG Sauer SP2022

February 1, 2007

SIG’s new 2022 pistol isn’t the first sidearm to have a polymer frame, but it’s a welcome addition to a new tradition of sidearms that has continued to grow in popularity.
