Which handguns do Police carry in South Carolina?
I have a friend here in Florida (that also lives in South Carolina) and he says that the Police don't carry Glocks (as far as he knows), and that most carry a S&W.
SCHP Carries G37, Myrtle Beach, SC have SW99, Horry County PD Glocks, Sheriffs Office has a mix of Glock and Sig. I know some of the upstate departments went to Glock. A lot depends on whats on the state bid that year. Also some departments still have you purchase your own weapon.
I knew there had to be some Glocks up there.
Pretty good variety around here. Supposedly some local departments have FN Five-Sevens but i'm not sure if those are daily duty guns or not. Glocks seem to be the most common, with .40 the most common caliber.
I know a few have FNP in 9 and 40 Haven't seen any with the 5.7x28 on most department budgets unless they got free ammo don't know how they could afford them. FN does have a US manufacturing plant near Columbia though.
Beaufort County Sheriff's Office issues G22's. Charleston PD carry HK's.
Next time you see your friend please give him a "Tipper" in the ol' beanbag.
Greenville PD carries 9mm Sigs.
Columbia city police-sig 220, SLED glock 22 last time I noticed.
Cops in Rock Hill, S.C. carry G17 I believe.
York County Sheriff carries G22's and detectives carry G23's the last time I checked.
