The other day I was going into a local grocery store not far from my father's home. As I was entering the store the "rent-a-cop" was leaving to go outside. Because of my interest in guns, I usually look to see what security/police officer's carry for a side arm. On his sleeve he had a patch that said "special security". In his holster, which happened to be a FOBUS holster, he was carrying a CROSSMAN PELLET GUN. I don't know what he would do if he had to shoot it. It only fires one round. Would you feel safe being protected w/ a pellet gun?? ________________________________________________ life is to short to drink cheap[beer]

Never seen that before, of course those security ninjas are just deterrents. Whether they work or not depends on the type of criminal he/she would encounter. The sheep think their safe and that's important for the store. But I hate to think of what would happen if he actually had to draw it against an armed assailant. Hey what model was the pellet gun? Maybe he didn't get firearms traning yet? Maybe he's an ex-con and is forbid from owning a gun? But just because you're an ex-con who's forbidden to own a gun does that mean you can't use a company issued gun?

I was at a Jack in the Box restaurant years ago when these punks were harrassing the unarmed security ninja. One punk said, "we should take his badge away".

SeaDweller: It was the crossman one that comes w/ the dart board.U have to pull the cocking handle to the rear and then push it fwd. Then You flip up the Bbl to load the dart or pellet. ________________________________________________ life is to short to drink cheap [beer]

Those can sting pretty bad. Also, maybe he had it loaded with radioactive poisoned exploding darts

Yeah, with the 2.5" bbl, I hear those things are real tack drivers!

LOL! I remember those dartboard guns many years ago. They're maybe about 90fps. I opted for the co2 Daisy "Beretta 92" instead. I admit it, I paid some straw dude stranger to get it for me.

Was at MOA (Mall Of America) a few years back. They had the standard not-cops working as [s]loss prevention[/s] security guards...you know the type - khaki pants, white shirt, tin badge, flashlight, cuffs, dazed stare. ANYWAY, around 5pm the number of teenagers goes up. We're walking out to the car and I spot a HERD of (what appears to be) SRT clustered in a briefing by a staff corridor. Curious, I peek in a little bit. Here are a bunch of jokers in vests, blacks, combat boots, helmets, the whole nine yards...but NO GUNS. It wasn't the Bloomington / Hennepin Co. SRT, it was the "mall ninjas" on full alert! Watch out, we're on [b]tactical anti-shoplift patrol[/b]. STOP or we'll yell STOP again! [whacko] Tango7 - I gotta go and soak my head for awhile... ROTFLMAO

I wonder if like Barney, he has to keep the pellet in his pocket?

Everyday on my way to work I walk past a large government building that is within a few blocks of the White House. There's a security guard that I often see 'patrolling' on the sidewalk outside who weighs at least 400 pounds and his belt is supporting a radio and an *empty* holster. I sure would feel safe if I worked in *that* building.
