When on duty you need at least three firearms.  A duty gun.  A back up gun.  A patrol rifle.  A second back up gun and a patrol shotgun can also be useful.  Consider each of these guns and ask how they can fit into your patrol package.

A duty handgun is your primary weapon.  It is worn openly on the belt and is there so that you have a firearm with you all the time.  You should have at least three high capacity magazines but five is better.  It should be at least 9mm but .40 or .45 calibers are better.

 I wear two magazines on my belt.  I carry two more on my exterior vest cover.  I like to keep two more in my gear bag or at least a box of duty ammo.  In a major incident officers often go through ammo very fast; that's what the SGT Says.
