Man... I have posts all over the internet about what I want to carry for work...
I'm getting on with a small dept, and for the first time ever, I'm not being told what to carry. Instead, I get to carry what I want.
I have gone as wild as a H&K Mk23 to a Five seven to literally ordering a M&P9 pro, and looking at FNX45
I know we all love 1911s, but please respect I don't want to carry one for duty work. I'm more interested in DA/SA and striker pistols for duty...
I want capacity, and have no problems with 9mm or 45. Would prefer to stay away from .40 if I could.
I have been a M&P9 user for the past 3 years with my old place, and loved the gun. very accurate pistol. Enjoyed owning and using it..
I used a G17 at the academy and I was very good at it. I also shot a friend's G19 and I'm very good with that too. but that's all my experience with glocks.
Today I went to look at a G21 and it felt alright. it was a gen 4. felt like any other glock. then I checked out the M&P45. it felt so much better in my hand so much more familiar. but I will never understand why they didn't make the grip a tiny big wider and increased the capacity. I don't want a 10 round .45... 12 is bare minimum.
I wanted to see if there are any M&P converts to glocks... I've seen plenty of glock to MP converts, but not the other way around...
if anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
ps - dept uses G22s (FS glock 40) but chief is open if you prefer to carry something else. he was ok with me carrying the Mk23. but I don't think he knows what a mk23 is LOL
The G21 seemed like the best bet. I have shot them well (very limited training with them) but I'm just not a fan of the pistol (actually I don't know what I don't like about them)
Thought about a USP45 as well.
FWIW, i'm most accurate with my Mk23. but accuracy is somewhat irrelavant in a gunfight
I love the fact that I can get a FNX45 for about 600 and that's 15 rounds of .45.... would be a big plus to have a smaller size of the pistol though, so I can off duty carry that (like G19 for off duty, G17 for duty - or USP for duty, USPc for off duty)
