I don't care what caliber any agency carries, I only care if the agents can actually hit what they are supposed to be shooting.

Same can be said for any lawful carrier.

Made more sense to single load into the chamber vs. racking the slide to go 1 in the pipe and then dropping and topping off the mag?

I'll admit to being guilty of that, before I knew better. :o
