Yeah, well I wouldn't go to that dung hole.[Chief of Police] Lopez said he didn't see any reason for undue worry.
"I wouldn't have a problem going down this evening to Red Lobster with my family and sitting down and having a meal," he said.
Silver and black glocks, sounds like all the "cooperate and be a good witnesses" got it just exactly right. No wonder the police disregard most witness statements as unreliable.

The wife and I ate at our local Red Lobster this past Sunday. Robbery can happen anytime and anyplace, but she was packing her LCP like always so at least one person in the place was armed.

Even an experienced firearms product person could under stress mistake any one of the above guns for bring another.
Just two days ago here at this forum I read a person make mention of an "XDM" only to have in a subsequent post another member ask what is an 'XDM'?
A gun that is extremely popular on the order of Glock and has been on the market what 10 yrs. now?
If we among ourselves can't tell one from another then it's not reasonable at all to expect same from a novice or even non-gun trade aware person.
Heck many people do not understand the difference between revolver and semi-automatic or that a handgun is a pistol....And we've had a thread here where members who say they've been owning/shooting shotgun for ages did not know that shotguns have a 'hammer' (!).
