Where to start, where to start.

Quote:
I am 64 yrs of age and set in my ways. You do not know me at all yet I have been written about in law enforcement mags and in the law books. I shoot between 5,000-8,000 rounds a month both privately and in competition. My youngest daughter is a medical professional and she and I shot competitively for years. Neither of us has sustained mag failure but maybe we invest in better equipment or take better care of our gear.

I was one of the advisory panel when the CCW law was being revised here 20 years ago and long before most here was too young to be shooting. Over the years I have seen an evolution in the public carry and that disturbs me. Walk a mile in my shoes and see what I do. The only way you will ever see me is if there is a fatality or multiple serious injury where an expert in the field is needed. I travel over 60,000 miles a year looking at such, both at the crime scene when possible and afterward when circumstances warrant. Much of my time is spent in courts on this type cases.
This is a good a place as any to start. The above is pretty ripe with questions.

Please list them, so we can research and learn from your experiences.

If you shoot as much as you claim, and never sustained a mag failure you are either a liar or a very lucky shooter. As far as better gear, I made over $130K last year (yes the oilfield was good to me) and I can afford to purchase the best if I choose. My Ed Brown gave me problems. Ed Brown makes some of the best Handguns in the 1911 market. It had to go back to be fixed. I have seen glocks jam, HKs jam, etc... So If you know of a better place to get equipment, supplies that are top shelf, let me know, I would like to have the "best" to use.

If you consider the view of the anti gunners, the elderly and those without a position on guns, seeing one with a gun on their side is somewhat upsetting. Seeing a belt lined with magazines becomes a source of concern as to why they need that much.
To be blunt. Its none of your business what I need. Nor is it anyone elses business. If I have to ever defend myself, my actions, not what I carry will speak. Need. PFFT.

I have so many other questions and remarks to what you have said, but will save those for later. Sir, you are welcome to your opinion, and I will fight for your right to speak that opinion. But you do not make any sense, and come across as a braggart that has no idea what he is talking about.

I and others on here have LE experience, myself both Military and civilian with a badge. And I do not see where you are coming from. Please, explain.
