    Speaking from experience, there's not much difference between 39 and 46 with respect to LE. After 20 years, you get to decide each day whether you want to go to work that day. :) Seriously, as...

    Is your pension based solely on years of service, or on age? For example, our pension vests after 5 years of service at age 57. So if you worked for ages 21 through 26 and quit, you can start...

    Two years ago I talked a good friend of mine into applying at my agency. He was 42 at the time, and had just sold his business. His background is in finance. He was basically being a ski bum when...

    Those casings look like .45 ACP to me.

    Locally we had a guy shot in the head with a .45 ACP, but the bullet was frangible. The victim survived, luckily.

    Are you limiting yourself to on-roster guns? Or are you willing to pony up an outrageous amount for an off-roster pistol?

    If the former, get another P-01. If the latter, another M&P 2.0 Compact....

    How old are your kids?

    JSGlock, thanks. Do you have any idea when the 80 series Berettas got that feature? I always thought that was the best safety system. But I never shot an 80 series Beretta, so I might be wrong on...

    Question I've always had about the original Beretta 92 pistol with the frame safety: Did the frame safety also decock the pistol? The Beretta 80 series pistols have this feature, and I've always...

    After reading the thread, it appears the consensus is:

    1) There is very little technical difference between carrying an un-decocked TDA pistol and a fully tensioned striker fired pistol. The main...

    After reading all the posts, I guess what I'm boiling this down to is why is the P320 "okay" for duty/SD/HD use, and we have an emotional freak out about the concept of carrying DA/SA pistol in...

    I merely mentioned that because it hasn't gained widespread issuance. I don't know of any large agencies that have adopted it, though I'm open to being corrected. I just use the example of the P320...

    That's just what I was told by the range staff. We didn't train recruit officers with rifles at the time, so that wasn't an issue. Regardless, the G17 is working well for us.

    I agree. But how does the P320 compare to a GI spec 1911? The trigger pulls are similar, though the P320 pull is a bit longer.

    Is Decocking a TDA Pistol Strictly Necessary?

    I'm asking this as a thought exercise, because I understand the human factors involved in DA/SA operation. But with the trend towards the P320 and other pre-cocked strikers, aren't folks effectively...
