    Hi Lawman,

    I don't know if it's a training flaw as much as it is a mindset. Over the years I've done lots of ride alongs back there with friends on a number of different departments and after we'd go to calls or they'd do traffic stops, they'd ask me how we would have handled it. When I tell them, I get basically the same response from everyone: "That's not how we do it around here." When I point out the difference in how we'd do it and how it could be safer, I get that same response, "I know but that's just not how we do it around here." What else can I say at that point?

    Maybe when I come back there this summer, we could get together either for a Meet and Greet or just to discuss the job (or both) with anyone who is interested in this type of spirited discussion... in person. I'm sure there are a number of us on here who have a lot to share. Just a thought.

    Couldn't make it to the last "get together" because of work, but now have a much more flexible schedule. Would like to get together with fellow mass coppers and LA Copper to "chew the fat", discuss procedures and even walk through some scenarios.

    Since LE has a bulls-eye on their back more than ever it's something we should be discussing.

    If anyone is interested in me facilitating a Range Day when we thaw out... PM me. LE or vetted MC members only. I'll put together a loose outline with some drills, but it would be a pot-luck event for the most part. Bring at least one idea or drill you want to work on. I may be able to get a nice private range where we can do work. Have a pistol that can hit something at 50 yards.

    Hush,
    Did you find anymore videos to put on here so we can "discuss" them? Unfortunately I haven't learned how to do it myself yet.

    I may be able to use a vehicle there if someone wants to do legwork getting it in and out.

    Absolutely, we can show you a few examples during range day. Great inexpensive indoor practice for draw/manipulation and short range accuracy. Another great product is the SIRT laser pistol, though that's more expensive.
