Jim Spoor replied to Law Officer WebTeam's discussion N.Y. Passes First Gun Control Law Since Newtown Massacre
"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…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Keeping Fit
"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…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion When Is Acting Off Duty Too Risky?
"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…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Duty Handgun Caliber
"I agree Tom. I too tend to favor the big, heavy bullet philosophy. But I understand that not everyone can shoot a caliber that starts with a 4 well. I shoot a .40 S&W and am satisfied but it is not my 1st choice either. ( However, I do like that…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Duty Handgun Caliber
"I guess this question is never going to go away. The short answer is the one that you can hit with 100% of the time AND has sufficient energy delivery to stop the lethal activity being engaged in. Since that magic bullet has yet to be invented the…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Bachelor's Degree Required?
"Technically no, it is not a requirement. BUT, you will not really be competitive without one unless you bring something else significant to the table."

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Biggest Health Issue in LE?
"Suicide, followed closely by cardiovascular fitness. All cops lead very stressful careers and like most of the population, our coping skills are often not up to the task. These stressors can not only lead to further mental health issues, it can also…"

Jim Spoor replied to Shana Baldassari's discussion Gun Safety in Your Household
"I have two simple rules that have worked for me: 1) Ammo and firearms are stored and secured seperately. 2) Guns are not forbidden, mysterious, or hidden away. My kids can handle, shoot, and ask questions about any of my firearms…"

Jim Spoor replied to Shana Baldassari's discussion How Are The Conditions At Your Local Jail?
"I deal most often with county jails, although I do interact with State and Federal facilities as well. The counties in my area are doing a good job. The jails are clean, well secured, and well maintained. The officers have good morale, and the…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Most Dangerous Calls
"As a FLEO my day to day experience is different than many of you in patrol. Based on my training and experience the incident that I view as the most dangerous is the "routine" traffic stop. It is performed it becomes routine, which is only…"

Jim Spoor replied to Nicole Reino's discussion What Kind of Rescue Knife Do You Carry?
"Hello, my name is Jim and I'm a knife knut :) Seriously, on duty I carry 3 knives. My on duty general purpose blade is a Victorinox 111mm Hunter. It has a locking mainblade, seperate serrated rescue blade, and other tools that come in handy.…"

Jim Spoor replied to Michael LoSchiavo's discussion Off duty carry; who carries what and why......
"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…"

Jim Spoor replied to Frank R.'s discussion Guns on Campus
"Julius & Hugh, Why is a campus any different than any other part of the community? A citizen should not have to give up any rights (or responsibilities) simply to gain an education on campus. If a student is legally able to possess a firearm…"

Jim Spoor replied to Frank R.'s discussion Guns on Campus
"Ditto Kevin, I've never understood people's reaction to firearms. A responsible gunowner is no threat to anyone. A psycho or criminal is ALWAYS a threat to all members of society."

Jim, Any agency would work. I am trying not only to add to my collection, but also build a larger trade list, since my trade list has significantly reduced in the recent past.
If you want to send me your mailing address, I will get a TPD patch in the mail for you. You can send me an email with the address to werpsu1@embarqmail.com or Gerry.Barrett@talgov.com
