    I have been asked before. Usually I avoid the question. When Asked where my back up gun is I usually say Which one.

    I got asked a weird <stupid> question tonight.
    Was out doing a ride-along....and we stopped at Chili's for dinner. The hostess asked us if we needed any children's menus.

    People have this fascination with cops and guns. The questions always get worse and worse. My personal favorite is when people ask if I have ever shot or tased anyone, if I have ever been shot or tased, and does it hurt? I normally decline to answer whether I have shot or tased anyone, citing that it is not something I discuss. As far as it hurting, I ask if they would like to find out. :-)
    In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

    In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

    Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

    I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

    You will also be asked, "have you shot anybody", "have you ever been shot", ?

    Lots of weirdos amongs us. I tell them yes to the first, which is true, and it usually shuts them up.

    * How does that holster retaining device work?
    * Are there any gaps in your vest?
    * Would a standard handcuff key fit your shotgun latch?
    * Would it be a crime if I swapped your dashcam video tape with a porno tape, if I just hid the tape in your car and didn't actually steal it?
    * Where are the mounting bolts on that light bar? That would look cool in my bedroom!
    * Can that MDT play "Grand theft Auto?"

    Just a few I came up with as a joke one time on another forum

    #2 is in poor taste, looking back on it, since a local officer was later killed that way

    Answer to "Do you ever shoot people" should be "Not enough" with a hard and eager look at the asker.

    Why do people ask you if you knew a retired police officer and then say the officer died like 20 years ago? It happened to me this week.
    The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.

    That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.Ē Ė Jeff Cooper'

    TxCharlie you won't believe this but I had a student ask if I had a retention holster. I told him yes and then he asked how it works. I told him we weren't having that discussion. I couldn't believe it! I agree with the other folks, have you shot anybody or been shot are frequent questions

    Talking

    I remember a scene from a Dennis Leary show a few years ago. He was ridding the snot-nose daughter of the Chief around on a ride-a-long. She asked him if he shot some today. Reply goes something like this:

    NO,--- wait a minute, I thing I got one this morning while driving over the George Washington Bridge . I missed the one on the FDR but got one while on the Cross Island. Got two in Times Square and was hunting one before I got to the Precent.

    Not an exact quote but close enough. I would love to use something like this around some of the smart asses I deal with.

    Thats funny, because all cops in Canada have vests. Apparently this lady was a little dim.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
