    I think they need to focus on some more training, and I'm not sure issuing glocks to LAPD is a smart move :mamoru:

    They need to start teacing Comp-Tac's three rules of safe gun handling. They send these simple rules out printed on the holster package insert:

    1: Keep your finger off the trigger.
    2: Keep your damn finger off the trigger.
    3: Keep your damn finger off the damn trigger.

    They have those rules posted in every gun store I've ever been to as well. I read a lot of gun fingering by cops when they're bored. That's fine as long as you keep your damn finger off the damn trigger.

    Why don't they defend accidental shootings when they go after gun bans? Oh thats right We are not qualified to handle these dangerous weapons.

    :rofl: A few years back a local pd got in a shootout with someone that had barricaded themselves in a house. Offical tally was 68 shots fired by the officers, and only 21 of them even hit the house, they couldn't find the rest. :bowrofl:
