    The article didn't indicate if indeed, that helped to seat the magazine.

    What a moron, everyone knows that you always point the firearm away from yourself when you pull the trigger to seat the magazine correctly. Sheesh some people :shakehead:

    How does he know he can't work? Maybe he should pull on random parts of his body just to see if that will make him "work".

    Wait, was this his duty weapon? Why would anyone be alarmed that a LEO had a gun? This guy doesn't need to be on the job if he's worried about alarming people over the presence of his firearm.

    As I recall several deparments in Indiana have been issuing Springfield XD's in Smith & Wesson .40...
    too bad few journalists take the time to get the nomenclature right....

    and in the officers defense... those striker fired weapons can be SOOOOOOooo confusing...
    I mean where'd they hide the hammer... :lol:

    I'm guessing it was a Springfield .40S&W (XD40?), but who knows from that abortion of a description...

    Then why did he attempt to reinsert the magazine? Of course I am relying heavily on the "facts" in the article.

    Quoted for truth, I've been wondering the same thing since I read the article.

    I think they are more alarmed now than had he just carried.

    Now what is wrong with this sequence of events. Something sounds a little fishy to me.

    Why is he putting the magazine back in if he wants the gun to be unloaded? Did he really think he could squeeze that extra round back into the magazine? This whole thing makes no sense.

    Since when did centimeters become a common bullet description?

    A hundredth meter bullet? 33 millifeet? 6 micromiles?

    Well, I did not know what it was in "hands," and cubits hardly seemed useful for an object so small.

    Zounds, man! :oldtimer: We shall have to consult an apothecary to determine the precise weight of such a small quantity.
