My first gun that I bought was an H&K Compact .40, which I carried on duty for the first two years of my career. When I got to my next department, they issued me an H&K Full Size .40, about two years later we were all issued Smith & Wesson 1911 .45’s. I carried that one for over eleven years. Then, after a sabbatical from police work for about three years, I returned to the profession at another department and was issued my first Glock, a Gen5 17. I’m no fanboy of either Glock or 1911 as I love them both and think they both have their inherent weaknesses and positives, I can make plenty of arguments for and against both. But I don’t mind carrying my Glock as I know it shoots solid, is reliable, and very easy to maintain. I did shoot better with my 1911, and would prefer to carry that, but I ain’t mad at all about the Glock. I even went out and bought me a 43x for off-duty, then later acquired a regular 43. I also own my recently deceased Dad’s 1991 Glock 23 that he carried on duty for 15 years. He was a cop for fifty years until the day he passed in May. As for rifles, I really love Aero Prevision as I’ve found they are the optimal balance of price vs quality. I’ve bought several uppers, lowers, in all varying states of completeness. Built an entire AR pistol from mostly Aero parts, using a stripped lower, upper, and sourced what I could from whatever company I liked the best. Right now I’m building a Han Solo AR .22lr for me as well as my 9yo son, all I need now is the 4.5” barrel and .22 bolt and a cheap decorative scope. I’ll post a picture of it later. But I currently have what the radical left and media (but I repeating myself) would call an Arsenal, but for this 10th generation Texan, from a family of cops, it’s just a start.
