    a couple of things
    1) that group (tatical response) and that guy (James Yeager) are the very real deal... from the digging I and others I know in the LE instructor world have done in the past they are easily one of the best training facilites in the world. They train many govt organazations as well. I am on a diet, and my long term reward was to hopefully get to take his high risk civilian operator shooting class, which would also require me to take his carbine class.. thousands and thousands of rounds in a short order.. but it would definately help me with my competetions.

    2) My CCW is a glock 19, the exact gun he was running, the only modification I have is a internal laser, the guide rod (the part that melted) is my laser, so I am not sure how that would hold up I am betting not as well.. good thing I have my factory guide rod and spring.. and I learned something the guide rod isn't needed, it just keeps the spring in place.. so awsome find..

    Wink Cool vids ) I had read all about the Glock torture test when I was doing my research on my CC pistol options, was most impressive ) I also found where some folks from a magazine, guns and ammo I think, reproduced the test with an XD.45. They didn't start the test till the pistol had about 10k rounds through it, and added a bunch more tests to it to try to destroy it. The results were great, no malfuntions but I wouldn't put the pistol on display anywhere. Any firearm that can take that kind of abuse, is truly a work of art. Thats why I told my wife when I bought my XD, that this is the last .45 pistol I will ever have to buy ) Of course there are always open slots to add to my collection, cant ever have too many firearms.

    Congrats Paranoia, you actually are in the highering process with an agency? City, County, or State level? or something else? I am also suprised they haven't told you what gun you will be getting lol.. Or at least what caliber

    ah congrats, I take it, this is not a major metropolis.. they have definate gun standards..
    Good thing about City work is backup is always close.. not like rayve who frequently had backup 30 min away.. Also City does different work then say county or state, for example my local city pd are traffic nazi's, they do far less deaths.. however a neighboring city that is full of mostly elderly has an unattended death almost every day.. of course 99% are just "died of old"..
