Wow, this guy needs to get tuned up a little. This thread goes along with the other and shows why I refuse to talk to the public in person about my weapons... its just a bad idea all around.

WOW, that guy needs some remedial training.
I had a fresh academy grad. that refused to keep one in
the chamber, after 3rd time of warning him,
I had to let him go.

In addition to the point that the OP was making, I can kinda-sorta-maybe-somehow-a-little-bit see how that happened. I had a brother whom we had had a discussion about carrying a few days before come up and give me a quick pat down one day. We had a big roundtable discussion one night on-duty about carrying and guns and whatnot where the discussion ran into points about how this fellow brother c9uld tell right off if someone was carrying. My retort to that was in fact that he had never seen me carrying even though I had certaonly been carrying my sidearm off-duty in the firehouse and he had no idea. For point, this person is someone I trust with my life and have absolute confidence in as far as letting them know that I carried a firearm. He called BS on me and the discussion kinda went in a different direction soon after. Fast forward a couple of days and I come walking into the firehouse with my XD at the normal position. Unbeknownst to me, this brother got behind me and quick-patted me to see if I was carrying. He MISSED the XD at the 1:30 position and proceeded to tell me that I was full of cah-cah. I told him he was absolutely wrong and left it at that. Fast-fast forward 24 hours when I got a chance to talk with him again on-duty and inform him that I was indeed carrying that day and he completly missed it...
The point is not that this whole situation went down, but the fact that I was in the firehouse where I do NOT expect someone to get to my firearm. Hence the fact that this person got in close to me and actually had enough time to at least quick pat me before I reacted. SHAME ON ME!!! Anywhere else I would have been cognizent of this person being so close and they never would have gotten a hand on me before they were on the ground upside-down explaining themselves. It WILL NOT happen again!
Your friend may certainly have been in the same mental scenario I was in. He knew you and was absolutely comfortable with you enough to take the actions that he did. Hopefully, like myself, he realized after what had really transpired and has slapped himself on the head and vowed that it won't happen that way again!

that sounds so reassuring. i think I'll just ground my firearm and put all my faith into what is obviously the most well rounded individual best described so far. ...forgive me but, providing this is a real scenario, it spells pure "punk" to me and he has no purpose being in that position. :hand7:
What's this button do?
I have respect for LEO's, my grandfather and wife's uncle were both LEO's and good guys, but what that LEO did is downright dangerous, and I'd dare say pretty dumb...
My weapon is on my person at all times. I know exactly what ammo is loaded in my weapon and I would NEVER hand my mag over to someone that I did not know very well.
Shame on that LEO.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
