My very best friend is a police officer. I shoot often with him and also with his wife.
For every jerk in a uniform, there are lots of folks like my friend. Through him, I have learned a lot about how they perceive the general public. I can imagine it really tries your patience when you are dealing with people who could not tell the truth if their life depended on it.
Thanks for all you do and for remembering not everyone who has a gun is a threat to you.
