    10mm MP5. Is that safe for hostage rescue?

    What you don't understand is they don't actually use the guns.

    They just show up with them and the terrorists says, "Fuck, he's got a 10mm!" and let's all the hostages go.

    They still carry 1911s? I figured they would have Glocks, Sigs, or HKs.

    They run custom jobs built by (at one time) Springfield Armory. Not exactly a stock Kimber....

    HRT and SWAT are still carrying the SA 1911s, as far as I know:
    http://www.sightm1911.com/lib/history/fbi_1911.htm


    It seems that in the movies the "tactical" cops are always carrying 1911s while beat cops are carrying Glocks (i.e. SWAT with Collin Farrel and Samuel Jackson... their 1911s were featured prominently throughout the movie). Is this because of the recognizable look/style of the 1911 or are they realistically portraying the weapons actually carried by the SWAT units of LE agencies throughout the US?

    It's in part because for, say, LAPD or LASD, the SWAT guys have specially-made (or contracted, at least) 1911s available as sidearms, whereas probably the single most common issue duty pistol is some kind of Glock.

    Art imitates life :o

    This is a concept that gets misconstrued, by both sides, all the fucking time.
