    I know it's old but it never really gets old. Remember, the police are the only people out there who are responsible enough, professional enough, and smart enough to handle firearms.

    "I'm the only one here professional enough in this room, that I know of, to carry this Glock .40" Man, talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

    No offense to the LEO's here, just pointing out that ALL of us are capable of screwing up no matter how good our training and how familiar we are with our weapons.

    Both of those have been posted many times here.
    The first is arrogance, the second is probably poor training more than anything else.

    It's really starting to

    I still get a chuckle out of the first and a little cringe at the second video
    But after awhile you start to almost kinda feel sorry for them and stop seeing them as total idiots and start thinking that possibly they are just people that may just have had a really really bad stupid attack

    What is most pertinent to me is that these two people's entire lives are compressed into these bad moments
    All their accomplishments great and small and all if their attaboys just got overshadowed by this one awdamnit

    Incidents like these can be turned against us, too. One could say that if even trained LEOs do this sort of thing, how much more dangerous would it be for untrained civilians?

    I thought the most famous last words were, " Here, Billy-bob. Hold my beer and watch me do this!"
