Not a topic I usually bring up here though I am an avid gun owner and gun rights supporter. I spent more than 2 decades in SF, first with 5th Group and then 3rd. So I’ve been around a few firearms and more than a few odd ones when ‘visiting’ overseas locations. This article at SurvivalBlog brought up some interesting and not commonly known info regarding the Dallas shooter. I mention it because it demonstrates the importance and EFFECTIVENESS of training versus hardware. You do have to respect what this nutjob did with a junk rifle.
