The Glock 17 is a sidearm developed by Glock Ges, which has since been adapted for use globally with law enforcement and military, selling millions of variants over the years.
The original Glock 17 was developed to replace the aging Walther P-38 Austria was employing at the time. Besides utilizing several specifications of existing sidearms, the Glock stood out for its use of synthetic materials, which made them very cost-effective for organizations to purchase in bulk. The Glock 17 is currently on its fourth generation of design, having been updated since its original deployment.
The International Temporal Enforcement Agency uses the Glock 17 as a standard sidearm, modified to fire Type-7 darts. It is considered less accurate than the Ruger Mk II, but the 17 has a higher total capacity and features larger darts.
Learning what weapons the International Temporal Enforcement Agency would be employing, it was decided that as a standard side arm Utopia Holdings would employ the Glock 17. While members of the organization do also have their own personal sidearms, the standard sidearm for Talon Protection is still currently the Glock 17, though there is talk of this changing.
Marian Bell has used a Glock 17 for nearly a decade, it being her sidearm of choice. Marian's personal weapon has been modified to avoid metal detectors, though more advanced scans can still detect the weapon.
Talia Parish was issued a Glock 17 as her duty weapon by the Utah State Police.
