    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    I hope that officer doesn’t beat himself up too much over having to kill that POS.

    Damn. Everything seemed to be going ok until a giant freaking revolver popped out of the window.

    I’m glad the idiot was so dumb he had his revolver loaded minus one cartridge. Otherwise he would have blown the cops head off.

    Leaving an empty chamber is an old revolver safety habit … we still do it in SASS shoots because of period designed replica revolvers.

    But it kinda misses the point if you put the hammer down on the wrong chamber. ( having a revolver go “click” in the middle of a stage is a safety DQ, unless the RO finds a dud or a light stricken unfired round in the cylinder )

    Nothing like alcohol to get a drunken felon to screw up. Fortunately he did screw up completely.

    Looks like he grouped his shots pretty darn good too.

    +1 to Jay, sucks the officer had to shoot, but if he had to shoot he picked a good birth certificate to cancel.

    Notice the flashlight in the officer’s hand, and the delay that caused him. The lesson is salient for non-LE folks as well. He was also too far forward at the car while talking to the driver, but that’s not as useful to most of us.

    After that, great job.

    I notice that in the background story the dead guy was a felon. I am given to believe that this was unpossible, felons aren’t allowed to own firearms.
