Hello,

In an attempt to reduce bandwidth and simplify things, I'm posting this list under a new title with the intention of going back and editing it as required to keep it current.

The list is current to the best of my knowledge, but if you become aware of changes, please chime in, and I'll go back and edit the OP.

Please note that specific load information is not being tracked, because ammunition contracts change so frequently that it makes it impractical to do so.

The old thread is listed here, for folks who want to go back and look at the historical data:

Thanks,
Mike

I think that it would also be interesting to see what the very large metropolitan PDs issue.

Surprisingly many do not actually " issue ", a weapon but have mandated guidelines on what weapons and calibers can be carried. My agency while not enormous, 600or so sworn when I came on had a list of approved and we were mandated department issued ammunition. Others may have a different situation.

Thanks much for the information. It would appear that the .40 S&W isn't fading away like I've been hearing and that surprisingly, the .357 Sig and .45 GAP have a pretty good showing despite not being household names.

Surprised there are so few 9mm. What happened to the argument we keep hearing that modern 9mm self defense ammo terminal performance is becoming comparable to bigger/hotter calibers? Or was that "fake news"?

Perhaps the key word is becoming comparable.

Maybe those going beyond the 9 reason that any advantage-- however slight-- is worth going after...?

The only one I question is the .45Gap used by Florida and Georgia State Troopers. With the availability of the other big 3, I don't get it.

I can think of a couple of hypotheses, though I have no idea whether either is valid:
  • Perhaps state police (typically highway patrol) see greater need for power than city and county police due to a greater need to shoot through cars (which would explain the .40s&w, not the .45acp) or to put down large animals (deer or cows that have been hit).
  • Now that so many people already own guns in .40 s&w, the manufacturers was to create planned obsolescence by having gun writers convince readers that now only the 9mm is cool.

the ammo shortage is over, ammo prices and availability might be part of the answer

In the early 80's FHP issued 158 grain .357 magnum ammunition with Soft Point projectiles with vehicular penetration in mind.

Our friend Mas Ayoob advises that the following updates are in order:

Georgia Glock 17 (9mm)
South Carolina Glock 17 (9mm)
Texas Sig P320 (9mm)

One of his readers also advises that Wyoming issues Glock 22s, not 35s.

List updated.

A Glock press announcement indicates West Virginia State Police have changed to Gen5 Glock 17 (old issue was S&W 4566 in .45 ACP).

The same press release from Glock indicates the South Carolina Highway Patrol has adopted a new Glock platform, but it's not clear if it's the same Gen5 G17 that WV moved to. Other state-level agencies in SC are already using 9mm Glocks (including Highway Patrol, I think), so I suspect this is just a new order to replace guns being taken out of service.

List updated (WV only).

Latest change: Virginia State Police is trading classic Sig P229Rs in .357 Sig for the new wunderkind P320 in 9mm.

I've heard Glock 19 Gen 5, but that's far from official. Wish they'd stick with the 21SF. I worked in communications at the time of the transition from S&W 686 to Sig P220 in .45 ACP. Never heard a bad word about the P220.
