    Research being conducted on firearms used & performance quality in law enforcement...

    Out of sheer curiosity , I am doing a research project on the different types of firearms being used by law enforcement agencies, both municipal and federal. (The military segment portion of this research was already finished).
    I've been talking to cops and military, but would appreciate feedback on any websites that may be available for further research. Here are the areas I wish to concentrate on, with a specific emphasis on handguns. (I've also been paying attention more carefully on Cops episodes as to what different municipalities use)...

    Secret Service
    Coast Guard.
    Federal Marshalls
    Atlanta PD
    Detroit PD
    Kansas City ,MO PD
    Austin PD
    Omaha PD
    Des Moines PD
    Springfield, MA PD
    Pittsburgh PD
    Las Vegas PD
    Oklahoma City PD
    Reno, NV PD
    Sacramento PD
    Olympia, WA PD

    all of us use them except one guy. still got his Springfield .45 "K" frame.
    but he's waiting for his Glock 37 GAP to come in. All of us have to buy our duty weapon, we are all going to the Glock 37. I'm the last one. I carry the .40 right now. I just got my guide-rod laser paid off 2 weeks ago, so I'm slow to switch just yet. Not to mention I ain't saved the money up yet.

    What are other Dept. using for long guns (sniper rifles)?
    still using the rem700p? I switched last year to a Blaser LRS2.
    got a .08 and .10 MOA out of it Sat. mounted a new scope on it(leupold M4 - M1 16x mil dot.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I know most law enforcement uses Glocks, but many still use Colts and Rugers. Does the FBI use Kimbers or Sigs?

    FBI uses a fully loaded Springfield, Model PC9111, for at least the Regional SWAT and Hostage Teams.
