Editor's Note:

Today we posted the third question in our five-part poll on off duty carry. In part one of the poll we learned that nearly 7 in 10 of the officers who’ve responded “always” or “usually” carry off duty, compared to 15 percent who “rarely” or “never” carry off duty. In part two we found that among those who do carry off duty, an overwhelming majority of officers say they carry at the belt line.

The third question in this series of polls is simple: revolver or pistol? Watch for the complete results to all five questions in January, the month in which PoliceOne will deliver several articles on handguns in conjunction with SHOT Show.
