Glock- I applaud your dept- you should understand how rare that is.

Re: Women LEOs- I have been in supervisory positions, had women LEOs, many were excellent officers. However, some depts were hiring 5 ft tall 105 pound officers in the post law suit period- and that is going to be a problem.

Mostly around here most of the LEOs are pretty fit most of the heavy fellers work behind a desk. Hell one of the guys that went to school with my still keeps his win 30-30 in the back of his car. He's a good guy has a bad knee and he's a heavy guy but most of what he does is training and investigation I think.

I agree. I am 43 and work out three times a week. And we do have weight limits. They measure body fat I think it is 22% and a height min of 5'6" We have yearly check up. They also give us stress checks. Must departments in Cleveland follow this. But my father in law is retired K9 from Ohio and moved to Tampa. He is 66yrs and works for the port of Tampa. There is no age limit In Tampa. We have 30yrs and out in our department. 10 years 7 months for me!!!

There is room for many body types and sizes in LE. I am larger than the average bear. I tower over most people, but I am NOT a runner. If I cannot catch you in the first 40 yards, I am going back for the car. 6'06" 285# and football knees.

My partner Sgt. is about 5'03 115#. She is a ball of fire and runs nearly every day. Granted, I could whip her badly, IF I could catch her.

Kind of like chosing the right gun for the hunt. We have gotten big enough that several officers will make the scene. One of them will fit the scenario. When I first started, you had ZERO back up. You lived or died based on how well you could use your mouth and how well you could use your fists. Fists were the last resort, but always available.

Guy don't get me wrong - I think there are lots of woman that are good shooters and great officers. My second point was there should be tighter requirements and F'off to the ACLU. Both the little gal and the big guy should have to meet whatever the physical standards are and those standards should be based on real requirements. Further, I was talking about patrol officers, not detectives or office workers. This is especially true since dual officer cars are a thing of the past.

I got cuffed by a lady officer once...I didn't resist; the one-armed officer had her covered. Seriously. I figured, "that guy would have more trouble with cuffs than that pistol, being short an arm." The lady officer seemed very capable and maybe a bit more "ready" to smack me if I chose to try to run or resist.

Long time ago, lesson learned; there are few good escape plans when you are in a canoe.

This is Plausible...

I've occasionally ripped a mag or two through my EDC "rather quickly" just to ensure that "that" particular ammo functioned in "that" particular gun.

I was at the range to today shooting my new mp5 and my sr40c there happened to be two officers shooting next to me one of them had a horrible shot no grouping what so ever all over the silhouette at 15 yards compared to my 6 inch grouping right in the center. I wanted to take a pic but didn't have my phone on me I even heard his partner comment something like cmone man this civilian is out shooting you. His partner was a good shot though.

Most civilian shooters enjoy a day at the range. A lot of LEO's shoot only when they have to.
