What kind of pistols?
The one email question that I receive time and time again is: "What kind of pistol can I carry while on patrol with HPD?"
Listed below are the only pistols you are allowed to carry as your duty weapon while on patrol. You are required to purchase your own weapon. During the academy you will have the opportunity to discuss in detail with our firearm experts regarding the best choice for you. I suggest that you not purchase a gun until that time.
Smith & Wesson Model M&P 500, .40 caliber
Glock Models 22, 22C, 23, or 23C, .40 caliber
Springfield Armory Model XD-40 Duty, .40 caliber
Sig-Sauer Model P229, DA/SA or DAK Versions, .40 caliber
Sig Sauer Model P226, DA/SA or DAK versions, .40 caliber
