    Bathroom ceiling painting?

    Don’t use the pink to white indicator type paint...... you will end up with a ceiling that has an interesting effect after every shower... clearly it didn’t happen to me when I was too cheap to buy paint for a small shower room and though I would use up leftover from another room ?

    I wasn’t there but sexual assault is a crime. I would expect to go to work without being assaulted wealthy men or not. it does not excuse ungentlemanly behaviour which may or may not have crossed the line to a criminal act

    Real emergency services car or not

    Not in an emergency and dealing 999 /112 in these circs will be ok. phoning auntie Mable for advice would not be ok though

    This can’t be real, woman can try out for the SAS

    What is wrong with providing smaller grips for issued police handguns? a handgun is a tool. Why not get the very best from your staff by providing the correct equipment. it is after all 2017. One of the best handgun shots I have come across was a female officer. Any discrimination claims, badly reported would have been a shot in the arm to a force to ensure theyprovide the best equipment to get the best from your staff. I am sure the smaller grips will be available now to all who would benefit from them regardless of gender. As a lefty I had a handgun adapted for my use with the magazine release permanently set to the other side. Its a reasonable adjustment I would say. i could use the right handed handgun . But the adapted was better. As for the thread... as long as the standards are met then it’s fine.

    Lefty’s needed

    Being a lefty has never been an issue... Unless you are shooting targets with a sling where your right arm is locked up operating a right handed bolt can actually seen more natural. From a bipod it keeps your left hand stable on the trigger... with the benefit of not really breaking your position... I currently have a lefty hmr and it always seems weird and more difficult to see into the breech A long time ago I shot .22 target and the club had a rifle converted for leftys with a welded steel cocking handle extension which looped over the top of the rifle.... inelegant but functional As for SA80.... just had to learn to shoot off the wrong shoulder.... I would in future go with a right handed... easier resale and once the bolt is closed theyre all basically the same

    Armed police office shoots himself!

    Arv courses now nine weeks... Not all shooting is static. I for one engaged in drills moving up and down the range including stoppage drills where a second officer would be stood over your head whilst you were kneeling. As for driving courses.... 5 week standard and four week advanced... A week for Tpac..... As for nds.... and loosing things. Shouldnt happen but it does... officers are human. The same could be said of any industry.... the doctor or nurse with a needle stick injury. The engineer or farmer trapped in machinery. The pilot with a missed item on a checklist. The postman mis delivering the wrong mail. The shop assistant giving the wrong change. All different in terms of scale but each a momentary lapse in concentration/ distraction... Police officers are not robots

    Traser watches ?.

    I've got one.... Expensive but bomb proof.... I would rather a nicer automatic than a quartz watch though as per some of the recent threads..... Silicone straps are good if you can get one of the soft ones....
