Asked some Chicago PD's what they carry on/off duty last night. They were cool about it. Except one of them. One guy was carrying a G21 with the hogue and said he loved it. I told him I had the same thing. Then asked what kind of ammo they use. Winchester was they're answer. Whatttttt? That surprised the hell out me. Then one cop was actin like a a hole and said I don't know what I was talking about. Until I mentioned HSTs and he asked where I get them shipped to. I replied, right over ther. My home. Lol. Then I explained all my handguns to them and I think the one cop was getting pissed. But the others were very cool about it. The one even dropped a mag out and showed me the bullet. It was out a S&W mp9. Made me have more respect for them. Except that one robocop. Lol.

Yep there is always one. But its cool they were being like that as a group. Being a leo, I have seen on more than one occasion, that one bad apple causes someone to have a negative opinion. To most civilians, what one "cop" does, all "cops" do.

Talking about firearms with civilians can often be a pretext to bad things for an officer, don't take offense if he is on guard.

I understand that. I was being respectful to them. Honestly, talking to them made me have more respect for officers. Usually people around here don't have that.

Cops are like the rest of the general population. I've had instructors in Police Academy that were rabidly anti-gun (except for cops of course). They dismissed pro-gun cops as ignorant newbs and would change our views after working in the real world. During 10 years of police work I became a NRA life member and still strong gun rights proponent.
