Yup, stay safe guys. We already lost one in Seattle. Looks like it was planned.

The caliber of the man counts more than the caliber of his gun.

All 12 Rules are well spoken, but I feel rule #2 and #4 need more attention and are really chep to enhance. I am from Alexandria, LA and a few years back there were 4 LEOs killed in what started out to be a "routine" search warrant/arrest for some drug suspects. When it was over the APD/Rapides Parish SO/La State Police/ and the FBI and US Marshalls(?)all responded. When the fight ended 4 LEOs were dead, don't know how many BGs died, BUT- ALL THE LEOs ran out of ammo facing AK47s! Resupply by LEOs saved the day. As a State ABC Agt, ex MP/Not SWAT, but a gun guy,(and FireArms Instuctor) I carried thousands of rds in my state car. I had 9mm/40/45/223/308/12ga + guns for them all. Agency had a BYOG policy on long guns-Ruger Mini 14, Kel-Tec SU16C/HK91/Rem 700 HB Varmint 223 were all PFD. Other Instructors were even better equipped with that + StG58 308 FullAuto and multipe long guns. The proof of the pudding in this post is an ABC Agt responded to a 00 call from a AL Trooper with a barricaded pert in a barn, the trooper wa shot in the face with bird shot and blinded. Local PD was on-scene armed w/ 9mms and 12ga. ABC showed up with an M1A 308 and it was on! Homeboy in the wood barn was praying for salvation after the first 20 rd mag of 308 FMJ started making kindling of the old barn.

...that little word you put in quotes has killed/injured more officers than anything else in history...I'm old and fat and grey, but when I put my hand on an officer's shoulder and wish him well and safety...I always remind him/her of that deadly word..."routine"...few things are really as they seem or all they appear to be...y'all be ever so careful out there...

I am happy to see your rule 2. I worked for 25 years in very rural NW Georgia and I was the butt of quite a few jokes about being "overprepared". I carried 4 speedloaders when I carried revolvers and 4 high capacity mags when I used semi-autos. I had an experience in 1971 where having more ammo than my adversary saved my life and that of my back-up. After 15 years of retirement I still lean toward having "enough". I know in big cities you might have back-up close by but "what if...?"

1. Wear your vest always
2. Always carry a second gun and make sure its accessible to your off hand. Just because your duty weapon was issued to you with three mags doesn't mean you can't go out and buy some more-there is no such thing as too much ammo in a gunfight.
3. search everybody like your life depends on it-it will
4. Have a long gun and extra ammo
5. Be smart and call for backup before it goes down the toilet
6. Handcuff every prisoner with their hands behind their back.
7. Search prisoners a 2nd time in the lockup before you unhandcuff them
8. Have a backup flashlight and test it before going on the street.
9. Remember people will hate you and will kill you for what you are and what you represent
10. Remember the cemetary is full of nice guys.
11. Have a prayer on your lips and homicide in your heart.
12. Regardless of how things appear-if things don't feel right-they aren't
The Thin Blue Line doesn't need to get thinner-God Bless.

...bump for this timeless's that time of the year again...hearts are full of emotions and more bad than good...y'all be alert and aware...Happy Holidays to the thin Blue Line !!!
