  • Cold duty weapons?

    Does any agency (or any you've heard of) require their officers to not carry their weapons hot while on duty? Maybe with a full magazine inserted, but not with a round chambered?

    Maybe a ridiculous question, but it was something I just thought of. Could this be seen more often with armed but non-LE positions like security guards or bankcar drivers...?

    And what would you do if tomorrow your dept. announced that you could no longer carry your duty weapon with a live round in the chamber?

    Seems like the TV and movie cops are always jacking the slide to prepare for daring do. (Sometimes, more than once, but with no resulting cartridge being ejected.)

    I think some of the military cops run cold, but not sure.

      I wouldn't do it and say I did...

I have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it."

        Hate to put it this way skippy, buy every night I suit up and climb in the cruiser I'm at war. I'm always outnumbered, potentially out gunned and always behind enemy lines.

          Why exactly do military police carry their weapons cold? Because I have heard that as well.

            Many armored car drivers carry revolvers, which, in that case, is ALWAYS hot.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

              The SOP says so. the reason? some dip **** thinks it is a good idea.
              It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

                That's going to be a big NEGATIVE.

                We had saying in the Marines. If the situation didn't require you to be armed then the situation didn't require a Marine.

                  CG does not, not too sure about other branches but we lock and load before getting underway on any mission.

                    This is usually found on Army cops, the reason, LACK OF TRAINING AND KNOWLEDGE as well as being led by clueless managers.

                      I don't think you'll find a single municipality, county, state or federal law enforcement agency that doesn't have officers' primary service weapon ready to go, if needed.

                        I don't drive my car without gas, so why would I carry my weapon without bullets?

                          Wow even if that were the case I don't know why one would offer up that info on a public forum for all to see.
                          ..
                          We had a clerical person in our office who heard all the plainclothes law enforcement peace officers carry ony one bullet in their firearms...where do they get this stuff?????

                              I'm pretty sure the term "in battery" has nothing to do with whether or not a round is chambered. You can be chambered and not "in battery" at the same time. FYI
