    This brings up a very good question for me to ask. Does the LEO's want citizens to become involved in a gun fight if it will help the situation?

    Oh good question. But the answer is going to be no. Come on now, think about why it's "no."

    Would probably depend on how much trouble the officer was in at the time. Cop kneeling on the side of a road with a bad guy holding the officers gun to the back of his head. Doubt the officer would object to your butting in.

    see my post #17...I think Mr. Stacy just misspoke...think he meant to say 165ft after seeing pictures and video of the RV park
    He also said he hit the guy with the first shot. He didn't. I am not sure to believe that he hit him 5 times in a row as claimed.

    on shooting investigations they bring out equipment and measure everything at the scene
    And "they" aren't vouching yet on the distance or the impacts.

    I'm kinda surprised at the number of people that think a 165 yard shot would be impossible, for all we know, this old boy could be a past IHMSA champion.
    No, probably not. He mentions no training, no military service, and no police service. He's just a GOB hunter who can shoot pretty well.

    This brings up a very good question for me to ask. Does the LEO's want citizens to become involved in a gun fight if it will help the situation?
    No, they prefer to be trapped in a kill box with limited cover and little hope of surviving as was the case with the first officer that Stacy thought was going to get killed and that the Sheriff says whose life was most likely saved.
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.

    The answer is still going to be no. But we all know what's going to happen.

    Now that is common sense gun control, regardless of what distance it was.

    In my own opinion as an officer, I'd rather you not get involved without asking first. That's not always an option though. Do so at your own risk, but don't get involved unless you think it's absolutely necessary to saving the life of the officer(s) involved already.

    TX Man Uses 2A Rights to save a Police Officer - Video (very Humble)

    This video, and Mr. Vic Stacy's comments are very relevant to DC and what situations you may find yourselfs in.

    Vic Stacy, the resident of Peach House RV Park who came to the aid of Early Police Sgt. Steven Means Sunday after two people were killed by Charles Ronald Conner, insists he's not a hero ó he just did what had to be done. Stacy told the Brownwood Bulletin when he saw that the police officer couldn't get a good shot at the gunman, "I jumped in there, put that first shot in him, and knocked him down." Here are portions of the interview.

    Apparently, there were other people killed by the BG just prior to this.

    Total of FOUR shot at 165 yds with a magnum pistol. Out-bloody-standing!

    :25 "...if I need to, I'll get in on it." <-- Right mindset. He wasn't looking to play Johnny Hero, but he was ready (and prepared) to act if he reasonably believed the need was there.

    He put himself in harms way to help save another person he did not even know. I salute this brave and selfless man that helps the cause for all of us that carry a concealed weapon. He did not turn tail and run for cover, but did what had to be done to prevent the killing of the police officer and to eradicate the earth of another murdering lunatic. Well done.

    Awesome story. Thanks for posting.

    You know his range estimation was probably real close too.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    165 yds with. 357 mag. Was it scoped? Either way dang good shooting. Iron sights almost unbelievable. I know the cartridge is capable but not alot of people are.

    When I first heard the report of the range in a trailer park I figured a reporter typoed the range,but to hear it from the shooter all I can say is "HE CAN SHOOT" 4 hits 165' OUTSTANDING
