Law Enforcement Trade-in Pistols

When I have been asked this question by acquaintances, I have suggested they consider law enforcement (LE) trade-in pistols. My reasoning is, by the nature of their duties and the research and testing resources available to the departments that select them, pistols formerly used by LE organizations can easily fit all the above-mentioned criteria.

The perfect AR is a mythical creature, but the new 6.5 mm Grendel and Alexander Arms rifles are for real.

The first thing to get your attention when you look at the Walther SP22 M1 will likely be the cocking levers on each side of the forward part of the slide/barrel housing. The housing will be the second thing that piques your interest.

Smith & Wesson Bodyguards

Some words convey strong visual images. For example, the word bodyguard always made me think of a large, intimidating man protecting another person from any encountered threats.

Glock 17

With polymer components, utilitarian boxy profile and lack of external safety, the Glock 17 caused quite a stir when it made its American debut in 1986.
