I stumbled upon this one on YouTube. I'm posting it here not for the commentary, but as a lesson on being vigilant. The female off duty cop was watching her surroundings and got to her gun fast. The vid serves as a good reminder for us all.

Thanks. I suspect that, as a police officer, she was hesitant to drop the phone because she was thinking of it more as a radio (ETA: to get help) than as an expensive toy. It is not tethered like a shoulder mike that can be dropped and easily retrieved without damage. That doesn't make it best in 20-20 hindsight given the way the events played out, but it is a better explanation of the reluctance.

She broke that one from sucking eggs, LMAO.


The only thing muzzle energy ever killed was time that could have been spent shooting meat and learning something about how bullets work.

His commentary is generally pretty good.

Odd, she was cognizant enough to clear the malfunction while holding the damned phone, but not aware enough to drop it and acquire a proper 2 hand grip? Pizz poor shooting for sure. A reminder once again, it matters not a bit who draws the quickest or shoots the fastest, it's who connects first.

He finds interesting videos and does a decent job of counting time and editing videos to slow them down, freeze frames and repeat important stuff. But, I find his commentary to be somewhat textbookish and not indicative of a lot of real-world perspective.

I like the comparison to Jesse Owens when the bad guy goes to full speed..... Probably only few people today would know who Jesse Owens was.

That applies to a whole bunch of firearms-topic Tubers. I watch damn few of them and almost always with the sound off. If there's worthwhile content, I'll see it. If I listen to a babbling fool, I'll turn it off immediately.

Was good , she is still alive but I'll bet it all gets relived and rethought by her sometime to come. Attempt on her life? Or carjacking? Better watch more than her 6 they had to be waiting down the street for her to come out their timing to good just to be chance. To and she didn t plug the dick.

He's the guy who said Hitler was cordial towards him during the Olympics.

Reading his resume reveals a chit ton of private classes and shooting schools. But no actual experience. Take that for what it's worth.

People with a lot of real world experience in gun fighting tend to reside six feet under. Even Bill Hickok only had two or three.

Maybe... And yet America has been fighting a global war on terrorism for twenty years now which has produced more experienced war fighters in this country since 1945. And maybe policing a country with terror threats, active shooters, increased inner city violent crimes and a general attitude of [bleep] the police had forced more cops into gun fights than ever before. That same set of circumstances applies to legally armed good guy citizens who refuse to be sheep and place the safety of their families in someone else's hands. It would be a guess, but I bet there are more people with some amount of actual gunfighting experience living in America today than ever before. There might even be a few on the Campfire. It isn't too hard to tell the players from the fans.
