LE Duty Handguns in the State of TN

Recommended Posts

It's hard to believe how much money the government sends to foreign countries when there are so many quality handguns made in the USA. :confused:

I believe all new Glocks are made in Georgia. The good ole USA. New Sigs and HKs are made in the USA too.

Negative. Glock is making guns in Georgia now but they are all being exported. Any Glock you buy here in the U.S. is made in Austria. Strange isn't it?

That may be the TVA police but not the Nuke plants. I think those guys are actually being put out on the street.

Yeah, that's what I meant. The TVA police... I know someone that's an officer and he had told me they were issued the G22's and I think it was the 23 also... it's either that or the G27, I can't remember which.

Collierville P.D. - Patrol carries a Glock 22. Swat guys carry a Glock 21. Investigators/Brass issued either Glock 23 or 27 (depending on assignment).

Henderson Police Dept (Henderson Tennessee)

Uses Glock 23 Gen 4

What about Chester Co. S.O.? My father ( deceased ) was a CCSO reserve in the 1970's, and his cousin was Sheriff Bell, who held office for a long time. I don't know who holds the office now after Sheriff Davidson passed. Seems like more city and county agencies, that are in that same county, should carry the same weapon to be able to interchange magazines in emergencies.

I know it's an anomaly, but I was in the Firehouse Subs in the Berry Hill/100 Oaks area in Nashville and two cops came in to roust a bum out of the restaurant. I happened to glance at the weapons they were carrying (as I'm sure about everyone here does). One had the standard issue Glock, nothing shocking there. The other one had a cocked-and-locked 1911! I could also see that he had the magwell beveled and everything. I guess guns are just a tool of the job for some officers, but it was cool to recognize a real "gun guy" on the force.

SORRY for the duplicate post.  I see this was already covered under "Newsworthy Reports".  Please disregard.

Saying goodbye to Glock and Hello to Sig.  Oh yeah, also bumping up to .45acp
