I also posted this in Brothers of the Shield:
Just got back from my buddy's Port Authority Police Dept. graduation ceremony at Fairleigh Dickerson University in New Jersey. He transferred from the 63 Precinct(Brooklyn) in the NYPD to JFK airport for the PAPD. The class of 83 recruits was unique in that they all had previous experience in law enforcement as they were hired from other dept.'s, and went through an accelerated 8 week academy. These "new" police officers will be used to releive the current Port Authority officers that continue to work 6 day a week/12 hours a day tours since 9/11/01! Once again congrats to the graduating class...

and all those cute stewardess...ooops female flight attendants needing attention.[:D] On a more serious note, I learned that my buddy was [b]NOT[/b] given a brand new firearm, which I thought was standard practice, but a [b]USED[/b] Smith&Wesson 9mm semi-auto pistol. He mentioned to me that they did give him three new LE Mags but he experienced constant stovepiping and the extractor had to be replaced twice so far. I'm far from an expert but compared to my S&W 9mm I also noticed that his slide was "wobbly" and loose on the rails, a high-milage gun perhaps?...WTF!!!
