Beretta 9mm


Due to a recent, documented, accidental discharge of a weapon that occurred at a public facility, we are re-establishing, by Executive Order, the salient portions of LAC 46 Part LIX Chapter 4, Section 405(E).

LSBPSE Executive Order 17-002 Authorized Duty Weapons

It is imperative that all owners, QAs and firearms instructors familiarize themselves with this policy.  Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action by the State Board up to and including revocation of company, instructor and security officer licenses.


  1. Glock compensator pistols, known as C models, are not authorized for duty use. C models are denoted by the letter C after the model number, e.g., Model 17C.

  2. Are striker fire firearms authorized. Are standard Glock type firearms authorized? Specifically Glock 17 and 19, 9mm full size and mid size models.

    • Any safe action weapon, such as a Glock, Springfield Armory XD series or S&W, Walther etc., that is striker-fire safe action is suitable.

  3. As of today 5/20/17 has there been any changes to what firearms are approved that disqualifies a Glock 19 in 9mm?

  4. Mr.Fabian ,

    I know the state board does not regulate the use of a taser because is is considered a non lethal tool. I am a former officer and is taser certified , as long as it’s not restricted by the company and I have my cert on file is it illegal to carry as a security professional.

    • We do not have any fidelity around taser use, and therefore it is up to your employer. If you have a certification, place it on file with them, and they may have to determine if their insurances cover your deployment of it.

      • I kinda want to touch on a slippery slope on the canik tp9sa is it considered an exeptable duty weapon since the pistol is single action

        • Safe striker fire weapons like Glock, Smith and Springfield are allowed. The Canik by all accounts fits that construct as well.

  5. I own a Glock model 20 in 10mm. It is ballistically similar to a .357 mag or a .45 acp depending on specific ammunition. Would my Glock 10mm be allowed?

  6. 4 inch barrel requirement is killing me because my H&K P30 barrel is 3.9 inches. Damn you .1 of a inch lol

    • Yes, if it complies with the rule and there is written permission requested to and received from the Executive Director.
