    First handgun, I start the local PD at the end of the month.
    Got the gun and 3 high cap mags for $300, thought I got a good deal.

    Probably, dependent on condition. If it's totally ragged out, then you just got an average price.

    Actually I am a peace officer now, but I become a Police Officer in 6 mo.
    And yes, this is the first gun I have ever owned. I have shot guns many many times, I shoot them all the time at work.

    nice, good price, good gun.

    Good luck with the force. Every day I deal w/ cops at my job, and I have seriously consitered going into the police force after college. I may have a way in too.

    I digress. Nice purchase, have fun.

    I just found out that EMS personnel get the Glock LEO discount as well! I'm so happy!

    So you're not a cop yet?

    Selling normal-capacity magazines to another person in CA is illegal. :mamoru:

    Read a couple posts up, I am a sworn Peace Officer. I am however not yet a police officer.

    This is a legit sale, purchased from my local gun store, at an LEO price.

    Oh, if you're gonna become local PD in 3 months, why'd you just buy one? They a cheap department that makes you buy your own gun or something?

    I'll be getting a Glock 22 for free from my department. :noes:

    I am a correctional officer. I am a peace officer 8 hours during my shift and inside the prison walls. I have no powers of arrest outside the prison, can't enforce law outside of the prison walls ect. If I were to witness a law being broken the only authority I have off duty is that of a citizen's arrest.


    Silly distinctions.

    I honestly don't know if I get one as a take home from my PD, and I am not guarenteed to pass the academy. Its 6 months long, and as the Corrections Department and PD use two different pistols, I'd like to familarize myself with a semi automatic that is simialar to what the department I hope to work for uses. And by all accounts the G22 is a very good, reliable sidearm to have anyway.

    Yeah, it's a pretty good gun. I'll probably trade my in and get a different .40 auto. I'll have to qualify with it, but that shouldn't be too hard. I'll most likely get a Sig. Glocks are good, they just don't fit my hand right and I don't like the sight picture.

    Good luck with the academy. Mine is 5 months. Tribal Officer in northern arizona.
