It depends completely on the organization that hired them: the company will comply with local laws. Most companies will allow you to carry your choice but will advise you to pick something practical and reliable. I carried a 9mm sig sauer or Baretta 92fs

i know a security guard and he has Glock 35mm handgun. I myself am a fan of glock firearms.. they are very convenient to load, etc.
