    So does he point it at his face when he's turning it on and off?

    do they actually work reversed though? They have no optics so I can see that they might. But you wouldn't want light going out the target end so I can see that they may not.

    No they don't work at all if reversed.

    Well, I note that his left hand & arm are not up toward the front, where they can stabilize the firearm and also stroke the pump action, if that's what it is.

    He's not wearing eye protection, either. I don't think they're shooting much at this stage of the confrontation; if I were there, I'd be eating a sandwich.

    Yes it does. And I really want to believe that the photo with the sighting system mounted backwards has been Photo-shopped.

    Perhaps it is a bench rest 870. :banghead: Actually, I suspect it wasn't close to shooting time.

    He couldn't pump that shotty anyway - it's resting on the vehicle!:)

    The more I look at that pic, the funnier it gets! Notice the third man, all hunkered down, not about to shoot, but with shades and helmet - to protect him from ejected cases, perhaps - but the two guys who are maybe thinking about shooting are bare-headed & without eye protection of any kind. :(

    Does a professional boxer walk around the hour before a fight in his fighting stance? Doesn't mean he can't fight.

    The next time you encounter a problem you CAN'T handle and are hiding under your bed, clutching your pistol, trembling uncontrollably because something went bump in the night, don't call the police. Somebody wronged you, don't call the police. Somebody stole your car, don't call the police.

    Exactly.

    Also, despite what rooter seems to think, many people who choose to own a gun and take their protection into their own hands don't tremble and hide under the bed when a bad guy breaks in while waiting for the police to arrive.

    In the US, unlike other nations, the police are civilians. This fact seems to elude not only the politicians, but the police as well. The police have no greater need, nor no greater right, to arms than any other US citizen.

    The law should apply EQUALLY. If we can't have something neither should the cops.

    This picture only shows the sad truth. Most cops are not gun guys. Many don't know the first thing about guns. Yet people will follow what a cop says about guns like its gospel.

    I want to use this as a signature line if you have no objection. Its elegant and simple brilliance.

    You don't have to be a gun guy to realize your eotech is just a window frame if it's backwards. Maybe he should read the instructions or something.

    I've heard this for years, but where does it originate? Dictionaries seem to define police as non-civilians. I just found many online blog entries where people insist that police are civilians, but none of them point to any sources.

    Webster's Dictionary:
    Oxford English Dictionary:

    Depends on who is defining it.

    I've seen it put only like the definitions you've provided.

    I have a AR-15 and a Sig 556 Patrol, both have Eotech on them.

    How is it a police officer gets a Eotech, mounts it backwards and gets all the way to what appears to be a real tactical situation without realizing that something ain't workin' right?

    Didn't he take it to the range and wonder why there was no pretty red circle with a dot in it?


    Where did it go?

    Where the <deleted> has that stupid dot gottin' off to?

    Good advice. Get your RIFLE and take care of it yourself. Don't bother with the police.
