SIG Sauer P227 Pistol

SIG Sauer P227 Pistol

If SIG was to capture a larger share of this market it needed to offer a high-capacity .45 pistol. And that's just what it did earlier this year when it released the P227.

FNH USA FNX-45 Duty Pistol

FNH USA FNX-45 Duty Pistol

A few years ago, FN introduced the successor to the FNP line, the FNX. Like the FNP, the FNX is a hammer-fired, polymer-framed duty pistol with a double-action/single-action trigger system. The latest model in the series is the worthy successor to the FNP-45, the FNX-45.

Springfield Armory XD(m)-9 5.25 Pistol

Springfield Armory XD(m)-9 5.25 Pistol

Springfield recently introduced yet another version of the XD(m) designed for action pistol competition shooting, and I believe it is equally adaptable to law enforcement purposes. The XD(m)-9 5.25 was designed with the input of champion shooter Rob Leatham and is intended to give competitor shooters everything they need to compete right out of the box.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. SR40 Duty Pistol

Sturm, Ruger & Co. SR40 Duty Pistol

The SR40's slide is machined from solid stainless steel, and it is the narrowest of any of its contemporaries. The slide also features very aggressive grasping grooves, making it easy to retract even with wet hands or when wearing gloves.

Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol with Safety

Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol with Safety

There can be no denying that Smith & Wesson's Military & Police (M&P) pistol has been wholeheartedly accepted by law enforcement agencies both here in the United States and overseas. So what could S&W do to make this popular pistol even more popular?

Kahr Arms CW45 Pistol

Kahr Arms CW45 Pistol

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.

Para-Ordnance Carry 9 LDA

Para-Ordnance Carry 9 LDA

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

Glock G21SF Semi-Automatic Pistol

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.

SIG Sauer SP2022

SIG Sauer SP2022

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.

Para-Ordnance Tac-Five LDA Pistol

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.

Springfield Armory XD-45ACP

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

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

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.”

Glock G38 and G39 Compact Pistols

Glock G38 and G39 Compact Pistols

Today's police handgun market abounds with full-sized, medium-sized, and compact .45 ACP pistols. But until recently the designers of these weapons all labored under a seemingly insurmountable constraint: size.

Ready for Duty

Ready for Duty

Beginning in the mid-1980s, American police agencies switched en masse from the revolver to the semi-automatic pistol. Rationalizations for this change in weaponry were many and are still hotly debated.

Trigger Test

Each trigger mechanism has a loyal group of supporters. Each claims that its favored type of trigger is the "most practical" or "safest" for law enforcement.
