I saw an officer with a 1911 in his holster so I jumped out of the truck to see what he had. I seem to always talk guns with LEO for some reason. I don't know why. I asked what he had and he said Kimber. That just surprised me a little. What do y'all think?

Sorry for the long time silence, just know I miss yall

Know a few that carry 1911's. Just their choice and shoot better with them I guess. I'd prefer extra capacity myself.

Most of the officers I see have either a Glock or a Sig. I've seen a few that carry a 1911.

I wonder how many law enforcement agencies give officers a choice v. issue them what they want them to have?

I carry a Glock 21. We issue a Glock 21 or 22, officer's choice. We also authorize other pistols that are 40 or 45 if the officer wants to buy it. We have a few carrying 1911's but most carry Glocks.

Got a good buddy that carries 1911's mostly. Kimber is the primary gun because of cost but I've seen him carry his nighthawk too.

Is it weird that I'll walk up to any of them to talk guns? It, for the most part, like 100% of the time will them off guard tho. I don't jump at em or anything. Lol

I'd say only 50% are really gun people. Suprised by how many don't know much about them. Almost scary.

This was a big misconception I had when I got into LE too. I just assumed all cops were gun guys but I was wrong.
