I was wondering do operators have an individual choice in sidearms or do they get issued mission specific weapons (M9 pistols or Sig 226)? On my dept we're all issued Glocks except for Team member who are issued Sig 1911's. Now old guys like myself were issued Glock 23's but the new guys (3 yrs and under) are issued Glock 22's. If your a detective or drug unit you may swap your pistol for a Glock 27. How does it work for the operators?
