    I



    New M-4 Type carbines for the department $1,500.00 each.

    Training time $500.00 per officer.

    Picture on front page of the local paper with the female officer standing in full view, not using any cover and with the magazine in backwards...PRICELESS!

    If you examine the photo closely you'll notice that the backwards mag is photoshopped. It's good for laughs as long as you understand that the woman did not put the mag in backwards.

    Actually this was a real untouched photo that was discussed in a prior post. The officer actually did place her mag in backwards and was immediately corrected by fellow officers, but not before a photographer grabbed the shot.

    Do a search and you'll find the original info.

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    This is correct, AFAIK......
    BUT......the ? remains......
    HOW was she ABLE to INSERT the mag BACKWARDS????
    There are alignment tabs/keys to prevent this from occurring accidentally....
    She MUST have REALLY crammed it in there.......!
