Special Needs Guns

Besides your on duty detectives in plain clothes, and your uniformed patrol officers, who else will be using your new handgun?  Do you have special units that may have special needs?  Animal control in some parts of the nation need big guns to kill a rouge moose.

A marine unit might need a gun that is highly resistant to rust, because salt water is hard on guns.  A K-9 unit might want a gun that is easy to operate one handed since they might have a leash in the other hand.

A SWAT type unit may want interoperability with other local agencies or might want ultra large capacity magazines.  Some might even want a fully automatic handgun, or a carbine that uses the same magazines and caliber as the handgun.  Consider special units when buying a new gun; that's what the SGT Says.
