Re: Thoughts using laser as bedside gun

Laser and/or flashlight on the gun makes for a more complicated gun. If you are going to add one or both, dial in lots of practice using them so, among other things, you don't inadvertently activate a laser when you meant to do the light, vice versa, or … accidently fire a round when you meant only ...

There was also a previous knowledge of the suspect (as can be told by his statement of taking her down like last time). I don't think Dunn was referring to shooting her previously but rather to a 2012 incident where he shot a man in the leg. apostate is correct, both of these officers at this scene...

There were at least two suspects present, the woman and a man, and while the man was not obviously armed neither would he leave the women’s side and go to the police.
