    Question What caliber does your PD use?

    Hello everyone, I ask this out of just wondering what different pds use across the country. I am under the assumption that most depts use 40 s&w but I am wondering if any use 9mm or .45 or even others as well.

    Lexington uses 9mm or .40S&W. At least according to the detective guy I work instant replay at Rupp Arena with.

    We use mostly .45, but a few chose the .40, and a few 9mm.
    We stock .38, .357, .223, .308, 12ga and even .22 for critter control.
