Quote Of The Day

The quote of the day comes from Tam and her discussion of the abysmally poor marksmanship of New York's Finest on Friday.

That's gotta suck for Bloomie. What appeared to be an ideal soapbox for a little blood-dancing national conversation on how America's lax gun laws are hurting Mike's fat-free, sugar-free, low sodium gun-free paradise turns into a national conversation on why the hell can't Mike's cops shoot?


  1. they "can't shoot" because decent firearms training is very low on the priority list in the academy training schedule, and a cop who shows "too much" interest in getting proper training makes the nypd police brass hats nervous.

  2. add: somewhere in a box of old gear i've got an old audley holster that was standard issue for nypd street officers, it was a piece of junk, with a spring latch engaging the front of the trigger guard that forced you to put a finger on the latch to draw the gun. an accidental discharge waiting to happen. i don't know what the standard issue rig for the glock they carry now is, but i'll be willing to bet its not much better.
