Carbines being used in Cal. manhunt

So today I clicked through the slideshow at, the one that shows pics of the current southern California manhunt (for the deranged ex-cop).

There are many pics of officers using Ruger Mini-14s, some with folding stocks. And few of the Minis have optic sights. Not many shotguns as I guess the officers are worried about a gunfight at carbine or rifle distances. And most of the Minis are stainless steel.

I thought the above is interesting. But it would be even more interesting if there was a .30-30 in use by one of them....

I bet there isn't a single one of the officers protecting his/her life with a Cal.-compliant carbine. Or 10-round magazine in it. That is only for the peons and serfs.

Who hopes that the killer doesn't take any more lives, and that those officers risking their lives are not harmed. Catch that critter!
