    You guys have Glock revolvers now?

    http://www.justnews.com/news/24607004/detail.html

    Where can I get one?!!

    All joking aside - seems the CoP had a major lapse in judgement - first for disarming in the first place and second for "losing" his weapon - mythical as it might be in this report.

    The media is full of idiots.

    "Reporters" and "journalists" are a thing of the past.

    Sad, just completely sad...

    They should hire me to illustrate their stories. I have Photoshop, and I'm not afraid to use it. Give me a scanner, a graphics tablet, an a few hours, and I can document ANYTHING...

    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    The intensely-trained uber-ninja super-man skillz seem to have not stuck to him...

    Police are special. They're so much more qualified to have guns...

    Regular Joes, fortunately, are not this incompetent. I'm sure glad the Law doesn't apply to the Police, or this Police Chief would be in jail on Felony charges.

    If anyone says anything bad about Cops, or tries to use this as yet another example in the growing mountain of examples of how the Police are far more incompetent with their firearms than the Average Joe Gun Owner, s/he is a cop basher and must be insulted and banned from the forums.

    Honestly, with all the evidence around, Gun Control Nazis should be trying to ban cops from owning guns.

    Dude. Not trying to start a flame war or be a spelling nazi, but if you DO follow up with a message for the chief, PLEASE use spell check and observe proper grammar and punctuation... Cause, day-um....

    A few comments on this story. First the writer may not know the difference between a revolver and a pistol or call all handguns revolvers. I know that growing up we used the term pistol to mean any handgun so saying that a revolver is a pistol would not be a stretch for me but never heard all handguns called revolvers. So much for that theory.

    The term Service Revolver was used by some LEO to mean whatever handgun they were issued no matter what type it was. This was common during the perior right after most agencies switched over from revolvers to pistols. Now the term service pistol is the common term. This excuse would also be a strethc. So finally we have the conclusion that the writer really doesn't know what he is talking about but is trying to make is dramatic. I would not call him an idiot but he probably is ignorant and needs to do some studying.

    Now to the officer involved. That was about as stupid an action and a LEO could do. I don't know what kind of punishement was given or should be but is should be severe. There was no reason for him to even take his gun off and lay it down but then to forget it is serious. It demonstrates a real lack of judgement and mentality among other things that are unmentionalbe in a public forum.

    Not only does his actions reflect poorly on LEO but on the general gun-toting public and he should be hung out to dry on this one. I have no sympathy at all for him.

    I totally agree with you. it's a shame. i have close friends that Police officer i draw the line when folishness like this happen and he has the nerve to just say well at least no one got hurt. They should have posted something on the kids parent for the execelent job he did for turning in the hand gun. but the news won't report that.

    "No harm done" because he was cop, a moron it's true, but a cop. If it was a civilian, their ******* SWAT would have been called out. This POS should be fired first and prosecuted second.
