    What official organizations still issue 1911-type sidearms today?

    SA semi auto's were outlawed in my old department in 1995.

    *SA as in single-action, not Springfield Armory.

    I saw a Houston motorcycle cop with 1911 cocked and locked, also saw several (I believe they were) US Customs agents with 1911s, and one cop in the airport with a Hi-Power.

    Here in Georgia, they're optional for Fulton County Marshalls, and most counties authorize them for detectives.

    If they existed, US Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta would use custom 1911s as well as every other toy in the book. If they existed. :D

    Very true. And if they existed, they just might also carry Glock 19's loaded with Glock 17 magazines.:eek:
