        Yeah, and you owe me a keyboard.

        BUT... you have it all wrong...

        I learned in the military...

        "This is my weapon..

        this is my gun...

        This is for fighting...

        this is for fun."

        Maybe the drunk's gun experienced an accidental discharge/misfire, but the officer's weapon is up for grabs, and more easily snatched by the drunk than drawn by the officer.

        I can't help but to cringe when I look at that photo. Thank God, officer safety training and practices have improved immensely over the years!

        (Thankfully, I can't remember the last time I saw a cross-draw rig.)

            Before the days of police vests and when a pistol looked like a pistol.

                  Good eye, Jeff!

                  Exclusive, reporter on the scene!

                  (If he didn't get shot.)

                  Disturbing lack of situational awareness... the more I look at that picture, the more it gives me the creeps... imagine a grab/struggle for the weapon:



                  Hope everybody but the drunk made it home that evening, and that he made it safely to visit his buddy, Otis, in the jail.

                  (Nice Stude content, Andrew, thanks for sharing!

                      i'm really thinking it was a "posed" shot.

                      note what appears to be a liquid stain on the "suspect's" extreme right side of the trousers. plus, given the angle, the center "liquid" appears to be evenly saturated on both sides. most males have a "righty" or "lefty".

                      crossdraw holsters were allowed back then. remember, this appears to be the early 40's, where flatfoots, with perhaps a right shoulder problem, were left behind during the war...

                      just messing with you, Dave! the pic is all wrong as far as officer safety...

                        Otis and Barney. Drunks used to be a lot less confrontational on the pistol-grabbing thing, they tell me. At least in Mayberry.
