Had a pair of you come by the station the other day for a warrant.

ONe guy was armed with a pistol. Didnt see what kind it was. The other, a younger recruit, wasnt slated for training for a bit.

Good to see and its about time.

Kinda like the Russian army. One guy gets the gun, the other gets the ammo.

I thought the unarmed one was supposed to be used as a human shield.

What round is being used in the Beretta PX4 9mm,40 cal ?? How is the pistol and how did they decide on that one.

...and the guy with the high visibility liner in his windbreaker is supposed to turn it inside out and act as a distraction. ;)

In Toronto most of our "road officers" are now armed, but because everyone works shifts, you will still have a lot of people responding to police calls without firearms until everyone is trained up. It will be another few years until we get everyone armed...

On a side note - every comment I've received from Toronto, Peel, York, OPP, South Simcoe, etc. has been very positive. The most common response to seeing me armed has been "its about time!". Appreciate all the support guys! Working inland (immigration) just isn't safe in T.O. anymore without the extra tools....

It's 9mm.

I don't have the pistol so I couldn't tell you how it is perceived. As for picking it, it involve a ludicrous, contrived and labyrinthine tender process and field test that only the federal government could devise.
