    Leo Interview

    As some of you know...I had an interview w/ the local PD....well 3 weeks later I got a call back. I have to go run the physical on wednesday. To me, getting called back after the interview is a great sign. All LEOs....am I right in thinking this? Or, am I just thinking to far ahead?

    congratulations!
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    As long as they didn't call you to come back and pick up a 'new TV' that you had just won...

    Really, congrats...sounds good to me!

    Thanks everyone for the support. As you might know I just got married and am trying to buy a house and the job with the PD. It just seems like everything is falling into place. As far as the job, I never wanted something so bad. It's my dream job. The only down side to the job....they carry OLD S&W pistols. Not sure model, but really could use an upgrade!
    God Bless America!!

    I remember having the same feelings in 1992 when I tested for my job. Been there since and it has been an adventure every step of the way! BTW, I started with an old S&W 669 that had been ridden hard and put up wet. I wasn't too happy at first but I realized that with a little practice I could run it like nobody else! Remember: Get lemons, make lemonade!

    Congratulations.
