Default 9mm no thumb safety no mag safety OK for Columbus Oh PD carry of duty?

Sorry Subject was supposed to list 9mm Shield. Wanted to know if anyone was familiar with Columbus PD's approved firearms list. Is a 9mm Shield with no thumb or mag safety ok to use. Gift for son on PD.

Welcome to the Forum!
You might find someone here with the answer, but without mentioning your reason for asking, why not simply ask your Son about what his Dept uses, if they have an approved list and what they allow?
(Or get his Wife/GF/Significant Other to ask what's allowed)
(or call the Dept, say who you are and ask them)
That seems like it might be Better than getting 2nd speculative info.
Also... Has he already shown interest in wanting a Shield, as opposed to something else?

Might be better to get him a gift certificate at a place like Bud's Police Supply. Buying a gun as a gift can be a slippery slope. (Even a gift to an immediate family member in the police department can be construed as a "Straw Purchase")

Others have given sound advice and the gift certificate keeps everyone out of trouble.

And a warm from “wild and wonderful “ West Virginia at least that’s what they tell us.

Default Shield for duty use??

Two points. The days of purchasing a gun as a gift for a family member are over. Give him a note in a card that he is getting it, and go with him when he picks out the gun and hand him the money to pay for it. Then you won't have any legal problems.
The second point is if your son is in uniform you might want to get him a slightly larger gun for duty use. They are more accurate out to longer distances.

Default Thanks All

good responses from all thanks. Sad that you can't buy gifts for family. Every weapon he's ever had came from me. Columbus gives each new officer a S&W M&P in .40. I thought a 9mm Shield would be a nice smaller off duty carry.

Thanks to all. Now maybe he'll give me my Glock back that he's used in his other jobs.

Default Money is always the answer!

I think the money or gift card sounds like the best plan. Did call Columbus PD and the Shield is approved for use.

Thanks again to everyone for being kind for my first response.

You absolutely CAN buy a gun as a legitimate gift, as lonh as you have no reason to believe the recipient is a prohibited person. It's more of a concern on how it might look. How could anyone interpret buying a gun for a family member who is a current LEO as a straw purchase?

You might want to consider this article about a Supreme Court decision last summer. (I don't agree with the idea that purchasing a firearm as a gift for someone that can legally own it is a straw purchase, but apparently the Court doesn't agree with me. )Supreme Court Upholds Federal Ban on 'Straw' Purchases of Guns - WSJ

The case in that decision was not a gift, or anything like a gift. He bought the gun for his uncle, who then reimbursed his money. That's a straw purchase. Despite being hailed by the "antis" as a breakthrough, that court decision didn't change anything.
