I would say 75% of firearm training I've received, I paid for out of my own pocket. I knew my agency wouldn't pay for it and I wasn't gonna just be satisfied with what CLEET "taught" me, which was basically firearm nomenclature, presentation, grip, stance, breath control and marksmanship, which incidentally goes out the window during an armed encounter. So I started attending Paul Abel's (RIP) range and learned how to fight, not shoot.

I miss Paul.

Seemed liked a good dude, my grandma and I took our CCW out there.

Yeah, he was the best. A bunch of us from dirtybird casino were there for annual qualifications and he was critiquing everybody's shooting abilities. And he said something to me that I'll never forget...

"Evan...you can go with me."

He didn't say that to very many shooters.

I still mourn the day the LT1 Caprice patrol cars were discontinued. Dark day for LE... :)
I remember when my dad got his LT interceptor. Not long after that he had a pursuit with a Porsche. Porsche guy thought he had it made until my dad paced him easily. Dad told me that was the fastest he had ever driven and scared the crap out of him lol. If I remember correctly after going about 2 miles on I-35 the Porsche gave up.

I miss my dad, loved listening to all his stories from his LEO years.

I wish I would have met him. There's not many old timers left out there to swap war stories with from back in the day.

Yeah, he was old school brand. Started with Norman back in 78. Stayed with them until 99 when he retired and moved to Vegas with my step-mom. Came back in 02 and joined CCSO. Was a patrol deputy, detective and then went back to patrol as a shift supervisor. Did that up until he took leave when diagnosed with cancer. He passed away less than 6 months later.

Hardest moment of my life was hearing his last call on the radio after his funeral.

Yeah, I've heard WAY too many of those. Well, this is for your father and every other fallen brother and sister of mine that wears the badge.
