    Thank you young man, another item for the security guide, with your credit.
    Enjoy the day and thanks again,
    Bill

    Our company has Chevy Impalas which are slowly being replaced with Dodge Chargers. Some areas have led light bars on the cars. At the mines we use Dodge Ram crew cab pickups with red/blue light bars.
    Here in the hinterlands, I have a Chevy Impala with 160,000 on it. I'll be getting a hand-me-down Charger next year, maybe.

    We learned that in the Air Police Academy. It can be a pain when you are doing this to air base defense ammo, but well worth it in the long run.
    Enjoy the day,

    I cleaned a supervisor's weapon, a .38 Colt Trooper from NYSP, once. (He wasn't good at cleaning the layer of rust, I cleaned it, sealed it, and reblued it for him. Helps when you dad was a reloader, armorer, and built his own rifles.)

    It was determined the weapon was about 50 years old.

One CPO traced his back to a small police department town in Missouri. Going back 16 years! Gee, wonder how old the ammo is?

    I think it is, I think they have thousands of .38s nationwide, and only use semi-autos when contracts require them.

    Wackenhut in Florida is still issuing the .38 caliber or .357 caliber revolver with .38 Special ammunition. Security recently was authorized to carry 9mm semi-autos without the coveted special waiver.
    Same for out here in Maryland. I think it's standard for Wackenhut...atleast it seems...

    We just got a 2007 Honda CR-V to replace our crappy 2002 Chevrolet Blazer. Unfortunately, in order to get this truck (valued at $28K) for $1.00, it must be a rolling billboard . So the sponsor put clouds and their dealership building on the side of it. It also sports a chinese knock-off lightbar from Uniform Warehouse.

    Because we invented America's security licensing in the 1970s. NASIR, where everyone looks to for guidance, was founded by the first Director of the Division of Licensing of the State of Florida.

    Security legislation, Chapter 493, is extremely reactionary. In the 1970s, you could carry a Winchester (Repeating Rifle) as a guard. That was taken away and all you could carry was a .38 revolver without special permission in the late 70s.

    It used to be you could use colored lights off public roads. Chapter 493 ensured that any light color, ANY light color, other than amber was illegal to possess for a licensed security guard/officer. (93 turned guards into Officers under state statute, but in name only, no vested powers)

    It used to be that security personnel could use force to protect property under Florida Statutes 775, just like any other citizen. Something must of happened, because FSS 493.6118(j) ensures that its a crime to use force to do anything but protect people from physical attack.

    Reactionary legislation, that's all. As the climate in Tallahassee improves towards security and more lobbyists are in place for the industry, the laws will be repealed or altered.

    I could dream

    The companies I did patrol work in between other things used the equivalent of a Geo Metro (Daihatsu Charade) with a 1.3 litre engine or Suzuki Vitara mini 4wd with a 1.6 litre engine. With fuel at $4.00 US a gallon - running costs are very important.

    My 2 patrols I had were about $20kUS each when kitted out with signage and were 4 door midsizes and the person who bought them off me has them on their 3rd engines now but can't complain about the reliability. For the aussies they were Nissan Pulsars.
