Let’s replace all of your security team’s submachineguns and semi-automatic pistols with double-barreled 12 gauge shotguns.  They don’t need thirty rounds (or eighteen) to protect you, right?

In fact, I think all Secret Service protective detail agents should be equipped with Ruger Red Label shotguns and two shells apiece!  If it’s good enough for us, it ought to be good enough for our employees!

Oh, hell, let’s let ’em have Stoeger Tactical Coach Guns so they can hang flashlights, lasers and optics off the rails.


“Designed to prepare officers for the worst possible situation.”

Reader David Turner sent me a link to these Law Enforcement “No More Hesitation” training targets to ask me what I thought of them. Here are four of the seven:

The sales spiel goes:

No More Hesitation Targets were designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.  No More Hesitation faded background enhances the isolation and is meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusal targets for the first time.

I’m sure these targets are Bob Owens-approved. I wonder when they’re going to start producing “No Hesitation” targets like this:

Oh, wait! No need!

Sometimes hesitation is called for:

What, they don’t carry a “Household Pets” target set?


No, this is not satire.  At least the targets themselves aren’t.
