As we head into the weekend, here are a few officer survival questions to consider. Think of this as a pop-quiz with a deadly serious pass-fail grade.
Back Up Gun
Are you carrying a back up gun (BUG)? If not, why not? I don’t care if your Glock or SIG SAUER pistol has never failed. You carry it long enough, it will break. When it goes down, you better have a plan B.
If you are carrying a BUG, where are you carrying it? Can you get to it if you need it? Can you get to it if you’ve been knocked down, or if you are wrestling with someone?
When is the last time you practiced with your BUG? Can you shoot it -accurately- with one hand? Your off-hand?
