"As a NY gun owner, I am not happy. The law is not 100% bad. It did toughen some aspects of our mental health system and did offer stiffer penalties for those who would specifically target first responders. However, outlawing magazines, criminalizing…"
"Finding the motivation to stay fit is not easy for me. The mantra I keep using is something that has been repeated many times by police instructors: "While your getting older, the bad guys are always 25 y/o.", or something similar to that…"
"Almost always. The off-duty is at such a disadvantage that being a good witness and assisting others is usually the best plan. That being said, if someone's (including mine) life was in imminent, and direct threat then I would be forced…"

"I almost always carry my issued firearm (Sig P229R) both on and off duty. 85% of the time off duty, I even use the same carry location, (strong side hip). I also usually have a spare mag, flashlight, but rarely cuffs with me. I am not petite at…"
"Julius & Hugh,
