    38 4" with a bull barrel(it was retired to junk after he left--could not get it open). I hope the new guys are getting better tranining now. But with the comments posted I wonder, and people ask why I carry a gun all the time. :omg:
    Scary part would be if some BG saw this guy in uniform and decided to become aggressive. At this point, Mr. Magoo would have a REALLY BAD situation. If the guy can't see, much less qualify, then put the guy on a desk and let him do admin duties where he'll be safer than walking a beat in uniform and possibly needed for LE purposes.

    Don't understand why someone had to shoot his target to qualify. Why not simply set the target out at 5'? Let him shoot, reload and finish shooting the target. This way it's HIM doing the actual shooting. It's still a bad thing to do, but at this point only person who will be in trouble is the person who is signing off on his qualification. Having another person shoot for him puts more people at risk. JMHO

    I learned a long time ago that LEOs, just like the rest of us, are human and just like the rest of us humans, they don't know everything. That being said, I'm wondering what exactly the firearms portion of their police academy training entails. Are they only taught the workings of what they'll be carrying while on duty? Or did this particular officer simply sleep through the portion of the academy in which revolvers were discussed? Whatever happened, she is seriously deficient in an area that law enforcement officers should not be deficient in.

    Hey for what they get paid ... we are luck to get the high quality we have ... try finding someone that will lay it on the line for the $'s they get... sad she could not figure out such a simple operation (in my mind) but likely its the first time she even had one laid inher hand.

    According to an FBI study the average LEO is not a gun person by any definition. Spending on an average one or two days at the range a years depending on their departments qualification fire arm requirements. It is that report that make me laugh every time I hear only LEO are properly trained to carry firearms.
    Note I did not even make any reference at all to affirmative action hiring requirements

    Those who would, deny, require permit, qualification, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    I love watching the TV series, 'COPS,' and chuckle when an officer finds a weapon, and then it shows the troubles they have trying to make it safe. A guy I used to work with carried a .25ACP shell casing on his key ring. It matched the slug that was buried in or against his femur. He found a .25 auto on a guy one night and tried sticking it in his hip pocket when it went off. As he was a very large person, the doctors said it was safer to leave the slug in place rather than risking surgery to remove it.

    One of my pet peeves is the detective novels that the author has the hero pick up his Smith & Wesson .38 snubnose and check the safety catch. The next time I read that, I will scream and throw the book. I wrote one author on this and he apologized and said he would get someone who knew weapons to read future works for accuracy.

    My favorite is still the DEA Agent that shot himself in the foot right after making the statement " This is a Glock 40. I am the only one in here quilified to handle it".

    This yoyo had the nerve to sue the DEA and the state of FL for leaking the video. He claimed that he was "embarrassed" and would no longer be able to work undercover. He had to try the case pro se. I'm guessing because he wasn't able to find an attorney that would try the case for him.

    Another good one is the lady deputy that almost shot her partner and the suspect while pulling her gun.
