I'd say keep it simple (and light!) - optic and maybe a surefire light. Where are you conducting patrols?

I agree on BCM, you really can't beat it for your application. I would look at a lightweight midlength barrel.

Is this for duty? Are there any specific rule and regs you need to adhere to?

I like Colts, but there other good ones.

For city/close quarter get an Aimpoint.

For county/highway patrol, get an ACOG.

Flashlight, extra mag or two, and you're good to go.
