    Does anyone know for sure what make and model of pistol the TSA has been issuing to pilots. I have been told they issue some type of HK and each pilot is issued two guns, one for range practice and another to use while in flight. Can anyone verify this? Comments?

    I asked an American Airlines ffdo if he was issued a sig.

    he said it was "some kind of HK". :)

    also said they shot 3,000 rounds during training.

    I have had pilots/cockpit crew students in my clases. The ones I have had in class are getting HK's

    Thanks for the replies, I had heard two different stories (Glock VS HK) from reliable sources and wondered why I was hearing two different things.
