    No idea if or how they're being tracked.

    Anecdotally, hearing from peers working on investigations or very directed crime suppression in the SF Bay Area and LA area that a number of these...

    The helo hog hunts are well into 4 digits to the left of the decimal an hour. I recall the fixed-wing time was much, much less.

    I'll be in WY fairly soon. Looking forward to seeing what it's like.

    That wasn't random; that was a planned, targeted hit. The awareness and initiative deficit issues have already been covered.

    While I see an Amipoint T1 reticle as two semi-colons on their sides, I do not have that issue with Acros, RMRs, DPPs, or the Holosuns I have.

    Taking Vickers' build a 1911 class cured my fascination and removed any thought of ever being a gunsmith. It also started the end of a twenty year run carrying them for work.

    4 hours every 4 years? Hayzus Christo. I had not heard that but I'm not surprised. Just think about all of the people who pay their own money to attend TacCon every year for 24 hours of additional...

    Let's just say that it isn't uncommon for this to happen. Female officers with male inmates and male officers with female inmates.

    Not surprised it went down like this.
