Keokuk County Sheriff Jeff Shipley has a new gun he will carry with him as his “duty weapon.”

The gun, a Glock 22 fourth generation, was ordered by Deputy Sergeant Eric Stein shortly before he was killed in the line of duty in April.

“I will carry that weapon as long as I am here,” said Shipley. “I think it is probably going to be a tradition, when I am gone I will pass it on to the next guy who takes my place.”

Shipley said he and Stein shot the gun at a range last winter after a regional gun dealer stopped down to show them “the latest and greatest” gun on the market. Stein decided to order the gun, not as a duty weapon, rather to keep as his own.
