    I like how back in the old days they had boxes of revolver ammo divisible by six.

    Very interesting video. Do you trust your partner this much today? Hmmmm.......

    I've seen some retarded things done first-hand.. don't do that.

    The reloading part starting at 12:25 was pretty neat to watch. The brass collectors on the shooting benches were pretty slick, if inpractical with today's autoloaders.

    While I can understand the etiquette of "muzzle sweeping" changes with the cylinder unloaded and removed from the frame, I still found it comical that the rangemaster muzzle-swept the rookie several times after scolding him for the same thing. Granted when the rookie did it, it was loaded, but still...

    Are they using ear-plugs, or shooting without ear protection?

    An entertaining find nevertheless. Notice how during the "demonstration" portion in the beginning, the guy with chalk in his mouth and ears nearly loses his right ear when it's shot. Crazy... You couldn't pay me to do that even with an expert/grand master ranked shooter taking deliberate fire.

    Nothing sucks more nor is better than a .38. witness

    Man, that was a pretty slick setup.
    I liked the old Herters resizing press.

    .50 a box for reloads. :D

    I think it was .55 cents (unless the .05 was tax). I'm sure they were reflecting on the good old days when it was .50 though... People will always manage to gripe about the price of anything.

    Based on an online inflation calculator, $0.50 is the same as $8.17 in 2012 dollars. I'd go out of my way to buy reload ammo at that price, but it's nowhere near as low as it sounds when you say that it's $0.50 for a box of .38spl.

    Keep in mind that this video was labeled as being the LASD pistol team. Not a sampling of average beat cops.
    They were darn good shooters, but wow some of those tricks made me cringe just at the thought. Jeff Cooper would have reamed them up one side and down the other!

    Wow. Wouldn't want to be the guy holding the targets or having a cigar down range of modern Cali cops.

    The other thing I noticed is that they don't show us the distance of the trick shots. While I still stand by my position of not wanting to be downrange, whether it's at 2 feet, or at 20 yards, there is alot of difference between making those shots at 6-10ft vs 15 yards. The "dual wielding" trick shot looks to be at about 6-10 ft.

    As good a shot as those guys were, I'd not trust anyone with some of those demonstrations.
    That is especially true today where they hire any and everyone to be a LEO. Heck their is a female cop out there who's hands are so small she could not hold the handle and reach the trigger to pull it.
    They let her on the force anyway, and she holds the handle with her right hand and pulls the trigger with her left finger. :eek:

    I like fact they hit the targets That seems to be missing in todays shootings . Like boston over 200 rounds fired last week. The LA cops that fired a 100 rounds at the 2 old ladies in a PU truck . That stunt cost LA over 4 million on news other day.
    Seem we have a fire as fast as you can and you might hit something attitude today.

    Love it! Classic stances, excellent shooting. Though it does remind me of this exchange from "Super Troopers"

    Probably comes from having a hi-cap auto loader and carrying 3 extra mags. :rolleyes:

    Wow...and one-handed! My fav was the two clay pigeons with a revolver in each hand.

    You only had 6 chances back then. You wanted every shot to count. Those old 38's with the full size barrel were very accurate, and they were usually the only gun that they had, not like today where we may have several in a year or two. It was the same gun everyday for 20-30 years.

    That was a sweet old double-gang mold.. can't say I ever even seen one of those.. pretty cool.
