With the recent massive re-organization of what bureau is in which department is the FBI still protecting the AG? I seem to recall the Bureau went to Homeland Security... or did the Bureau stay in Justice?

The Sig P220 in .45 was the issued pistol of the agents on the Attorney General's protection detail. I don't know if it is anymore.
No, the FBI is still the primary investigative arm of the Department of Justice. And the Bureau is still tasked with providing protection for the Attorney General of the United States. That being said, I did not know there was ever a particular pistol issued to that detail. I always assumed (shame on me) they carried whatever Bu issued or approved pistol they normally carried. Go figure.
