    As of a couple of years ago, the Tacoma, WA, PD either issued or authorized the 1911 as a duty weapon. I don't know if that's still current, as their chief committed suicide a couple of years back and I don't know if the new leadership might have revised the policy.

    Fear is a reaction,
    courage is a decision.

    The 3 TX counties I've lived in have allowed Deputies to carry whatever they can qualify with. The downside is they gotta provide it. I was surprised to see a shiny Kimber in a guy's holster when I first moved here.
