It sure isn't the 1911's we trained on in 1983. I think it might be a Springfield XD, it looks too tall to be an M&P and the front doesn't look like a Glock. This photo was taken during plebe weapons familiarization training.

I think it's a Sig 228. I don't think those slides are as long as a 226.
I was gonna say sig but i dont know the models very well
Definitely a Sig, perhaps a 229 or 228.

Navy uses sig 226 if I recall correctly

maybe they are the old NCIS p228's they replaced with the 229's?
Why is her ear and eye protection on the bench instead of on her head and face?
Looks like a SIG more than anything to me. But what do I know... I've never owned one.
I have though looked at tons of them in my quest to find the right one for purchase.
