You can plan on becoming a LEO after school, but the whole thing can really limit your field of view. Plus, you have no idea if you will end up in an agency. There are many things that may occur along the way that may take you in a different direction. -Back in the day (before the N. Hollywood bank shootout) I had a friend who figured that he would be joining the LAPD so he got a Beretta 92 (their duty pistol). He did not become a LAPD officer and later ended up selling the Beretta but stayed with shooting. The best lesson he learned from the experience is that agencies can use a particular make and model of firearm for reasons other than it is "the best."dtheman said:Intended role is range, but must be just as reliable as for duty. I plan on LEO service after school.
I am not saying anything about your range gun not being "duty capable." Both are capable platforms for LE type work. Both were derived from military firearms and would do well under more challenging situations than occur during typical range or LE use.dtheman said:Breaker Dave, I am aware of all that information. It still doesn't detract from my possible range gun being duty capable.
