Why I carry several different guns...

    ... from a handgun to a PCC to an AR to an M1A.

    I wish I could also carry a flame thrower, an M79, plus something belt fed, and that mini-gun we saw in PREDATOR.

    "Officer, why do you have four guns?"

    "Because five starts to get pretty heavy."

    If I were the scene OIC it would have been The Charge of the Light Brigade on his ass.

    Holy freaking sheet!!

    The guys remained pretty calm for facing a FA with no hard cover....but what choice did they have.

    And people wonder why many LEOs are so defensive all the time.

    I sure hope the officer that got hit recovered OK as well as any one else downrange of that firestorm.

    I assume they announced before breaching the door, but even if you thought you were being home invaded for that split second, you would stop shooting.

    Either this was a really bad guy or someone mentally unstable. I'm guessing the later but either way it probably did not end well for them.

    I saw that video last week. It is a really harrowing situation for sure.

    At least the good guys recovered. I had hoped that the shooter died a slow and agonizing death but he committed suicide. He did have shotgun wounds to the face and arm so at least there is that.

    I cannot for the life of me understand people. The few times I have had to interact with police I have never been treated disrespectful. I treat them with respect and that is the way they have always treated me. Granted, it has mostly been traffic stops.

    I certainly appreciate the job they do. Every encounter they have could be bad, and they don't know who or when. Every officer involved shooting I have read about or saw on the news could have been avoided if the civilian would have complied.

    It was sickening the way law enforcement was treated the 8 years before Trump. I think that will take a long time to overcome.
