    I saw that dash cam video when I went through CLEET. The guy shot the Trooper with a North American Arms single action .22 pistol.

    After that video we were shown a prison interview with the killer who stated that killing the Trooper wasn’t his fault. He said that if the Trooper had received better training that he would have never killed him.

    I'm picking up one this afternoon. If you'd like, we can meet at a range sometime and I'll be happy to let you shoot it.

    I prefer 45acp. Will carry 9mm every now and then but I practice every week with 1911 and today is a practice day also. Nice to have a range and be able to deduct shooting expenses as business expenses. :-)

    Mission Accomplished. Thank you for posting the video link and also the link to the story. You were correct and I was wrong.

    Thank you for admitting that. Legit story. Terribly sad, horrific. And some scumbag gets to spend the rest of his life on our dime, while the trooper's kids live without their dad.

    I prefer bigger boolits too, but with a backyard range, an inkling to shoot each weekend and then some in the nice weather, .22 is the cheapest option.. If I could deduct my boolit expenses I'd shoot bigger too..

    Be careful about boasting that your recreation expenses are deductible as business expenses. You could very easily get an unpleasant audit.

    I'll pocket carry my Sig P238 when I need something really small. I never gave much thought as to what anyone else thinks about it.

    Same here. My Keltec P3-AT in .380 is to buy me time to get to the serious stuff if possible.
