    I don’t just carry a weapon..I have a relationship with my weapon. I use it often at the range, (to maintain skills) I clean it meticulously when I’m finished and I treat it like a friend who would be there for me in a critical and life or death situation. I admire and respect the power that it posseses and yet like our military, I don’t look forward to engaging the bad guys but the reality is..they are out there. Having a weapon has allowed me to defend my right to live from those who don’t value my rights or anybody else’s. To date..haven’t had to meet that challenge.

    Many times throughout my 33 year law enforcement career I have had to draw my weapon with the possibility of using deadly force. Working SWAT and other high risk assignments put myself ad my partners at risk every day. Fortunately we had superb training and although fear was always there, my training always kicked in to get the job done.

    Howdy: Yup, as a recently new RailRoad Police Officer, within a year or so, I had to pull my weapon in response to a knife threat.

    It was on a recently arrived freight train. As I was making my way down the newly arrived cars, around 0200, I spotted movement inside of a empty freight car. I lit it up with my flashlight, identified myself as railroad police and ordered a couple transients out, informing them that they were trespassing, and had to leave.

    First one gathered his stuff and followed my directions out of the rail yard and off the property. The second one, upon hitting the ground between the two sets of cars, spun around with a 12 inch butcher knife towards me. I had him illuminated with my Kel-Light, about 20 feet distant. I immediately pulled my .357, ordered him to drop the knife or die, then and there. He hesitated a moment, I repeated my commands, again stating I was a railway police officer,while holding a bead on his heart.
    in a two handed stance. In a few seconds,as it must have sunk into his head, as he dropped the knife, stepped back and I cuffed him up and marched him out of the yard across the tracks to my office, where I called the PD for transport. He got 6 months for Trespass and AWDW, and I went home alive and well. Thank you Lord and St Michael, for my safety and the outcome!

    I have been carrying for about 20 years now and have never had a reason to draw my weapon. I hope I never have to but there is always a chance. Being Handicapped I’m a walking target!
