You Said "I guess I was just a little shocked when he told me this, and it was no big deal to him. He thinks he is more than adequately prepared should the need arise to use his weapon. I am not so sure I agree."
Actual, I totally agree with you, I would also be shocked. That is a lot to say because if you read my posts I am 100% BLUE.
However, as always David Armstrong is right, most peace officers never discharge there weapons in anger.
The problem is:
"Once the combat envelope wraps its' cold clammy arms around you, there is more than enough to think about besides how your weapon works, what condition of readiness IT IS IN, or where it shoots."
This applies to folks with badges as well as to folks without them!
First, with the most, WINS!
