If so, time to put the pistol up.

    Scary. Looks like she shows up just to collect a paycheck. If SHTF, she'd probably run/hide/die/all of these. Natural selection is a funny thing.

    And these are the sorts of people the forces of darkness are telling us will "protect us" from criminals once we give up our guns. . .

    If you are not willing to train fithe your sidearm just leave it at home. Otherwise your just a liability to all those around you.

    Y'never know!  Julie Goloski may be on the scene when this lady gets gunned down so that she can make use of the crazy woman's sidearm!

    Pfff.  She would do well to consider that her employers might have her carrying a pistol on the job for a reason.  It's certainly not just for show.  Ugh.  ::)

    If her employer doesn't provide ammo for practice, hopefully, they don't give her any for work either.

    I managed to finish it and the thing that came to mind is a quote from the movie Forest Gump:

    Sadly, there are others like her who are sworn peace officers. 

    I worked with them.  I tried to train them.

    They instead chose to rely on their guardian angel.

    The Powers That Be where I work have the same philosophy. Qualification once a year is sufficient, and don't you dare think of asking for a chance at range time! As I posted in the Ladies Area, "(The second event) is the fact that we only qualify once a year with firearms. If you do a lot of transports, it's not bad. However, some officers haven't touched a weapon for the last 12 months. This was apparent after one of our Lieutenants narrowly escaped injury on the range when a nervous once-a-year officer accidentally discharged their weapon due to being unfamiliar with it. That's not going to be me!"

    I don't get these people. If I had a job that required me to carry a gun, I would practice...well just as much as I already do. Bad analogy, I guess.

    But then I DO have a job where we train to do stuff we may never have to do and stuff we hope we never have to do.

    A frightening concept.

    There are no accidental discharges, only negligent ones, IMO.
