Thank you, Scott for the observation on a fire. A fire department is reactive, so they are already behind when the alarm bells ring. If a building is over 50%involved, then it is more productive to protect the surroundings. You can put out any fire with a coffee cup full of water. Either at the start or the very end.
While in a Rad-f Course in December, I was told that Florida Troopers and some other Florida Officers were going to be issued Army surplus M-16s. Supposeldy, the guns are early and do not have forward assist. One person said that he had aproblem with the guns because one would not fit in his patrol car's trunk. He drives one of the Dodge Chargers.
