    This came up in conversation today. Does anyone know what TPWD issues as their standard sidearm.

    The conversation came down to it being a Glock, but then there was no agreement on model/caliber. Is Glock even right and does anyone know the model and caliber?

    There are three that frequent the burger joint I have lunch at on a regular basis and all three carry Glocks. I have seen other TPWD Officers in other places and they too are all carrying Glocks.

    Interesting. Anyone know why wardens carry one caliber and rangers another?

    Different departments different idea's on cal. choice. But, IMHO I think wardens are probably more "firearm" experenced overall than a park ranger. Probably many people would debate this but seems to fit to me after working with both.
