    Non LEO that has not been in a shoot out = me.

    Non LEO that hopes it stays that way= me again.

    Nope, and absolutely hope to keep it that way.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Not LEO and thankfully, never came close to a shootout.

    To not carry a firearm and need one is avoidable and sometimes fatal stupidity

    I my brother knew a guy whose dad knew a guy whose cousins brothers girlfriend seen somebody get shot once. So I think I'm pretty qualified on the subject.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    As an LEO... Yes, I've been in a few... I don't really care to discuss the facts except to say, when shots were fired it was justified and I was cleared... believe me, you don't want to be involved in one, if you can help it...
