    Sheriff decided to trade in the G22s for M&P9 2.0s (no safety). Just got issued mine yesterday. They even gave me a new Safariland ALS duty holster. I'm still carrying the Glock, but I need to turn it in as soon as I qualify with the Smith. I've been carrying a G22 in a straight-drop, low-ride Serpa holster for almost 7 years now. It's going to be a bit of a learning curve with the unfamiliar retention system, higher ride, and forward cant of the new rig. I don't want to buy a new holster though.

    Congrats! Who gets the G22s? I'd even take a 7-year old Glock if it was free...

    I'd rather the ALS than the GLS that I have. Enjoy.

    ALS > Serpa any day. I liked my ALS for G22 duty rig.

    People either love or hate hate the M2.0 grip texture.
    Which camp are you in @TheLastViking ?

    I like it, although it feels like it might get tiring during long range sessions. But it's not a target pistol, it's a weapon. It needs to be easy to hold onto if my hands are cold, wet, bloody, etc.
