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.

Beretta Announces New PX4 Storm Subcompact

March 6, 2008
Built around Beretta's latest Px4 Storm modular technology, the company's new Px4 Storm subcompact delivers concealed carry handling with large frame firepower.

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.

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.

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.

Love the One You're With

December 1, 2006

One of the most frustrating things that can happen to you as a law enforcement officer is being forced to carry a handgun that you dislike. So what can you do if your issued sidearm doesn’t fit you or you just don’t like it?

Kel-Tec PLR-16 .223 Handgun

September 1, 2006

Can an AR-style pistol really hold up to combat conditions? The rugged and accurate PLR-16 can.

Para-Ordnance Tac-Five LDA Pistol

July 1, 2006

There can be no denying that the most popular semi-automatic pistol of all time is John Moses Browning’s venerable Model 1911. The Model 1911 served the U.S. Army for almost a century; its popularity with civilian shooters knows few bounds, and it dominates the action pistol shooting sports. Oddly enough, however, the 1911 never gained much of a following among American law enforcement agencies. The reasons for this can be summed up in two words: tradition and litigation.

SIG Sauer 229 SAS Pistol

May 1, 2006

With refinements like a radical dehorning, a DAK double-action-only trigger, tritium front night sight and chambering for the potent .40 S&W cartridge, the SIG 229 SAS possesses everything that an officer or agent could need. And it should. This newest member of the SIG is designed for professionals who carry their guns all day, every day.

Springfield Armory XD-45ACP

April 1, 2006

Despite the howls of protest and dire predictions that continue to emanate from the traditionalists among us, I believe I am on firm ground when I state that polymer-frame pistols are not only here to stay, but will continue to capture an increasing share of the U.S. police market.

Smith & Wesson M&P .40 Semi-Auto Pistol

March 1, 2006

I would be willing to bet cash money that if you were to ask any veteran American law enforcement officer who is over the age of 35 to tell you what a “Military & Police” is, he or she would answer “Smith & Wesson’s most popular revolver.”

SHOT Show 2006: Report from the Show Floor

March 1, 2006

You probably think you have seen every possible rifle that can be derived from the basic AR platform. Think again.

Law Enforcement Handguns 2006

February 1, 2006

A good law enforcement handgun does not have to be new and exciting to remain viable in the market. A good duty or off-duty sidearm is not a fashion statement; it's a tool.
