    I'll be my left nut that the number of "lost" weapons by CCW license holders is only a fraction of that.

    While any weapon lost is bad, 179 out of over 188,000 in service is pretty small percentage wise. Ask the government how many vehicles they can (cannot) account for, I'll bet the percentage is higher...

    The sticky with me is that they could have been prevented with due diligence.

    Our local police chief left his glock in the boys room at the high school. That went over really well.

    Stop putting things into perspective. 0.095212 seems pretty low. When humans are involved, mistakes happen.

    Actually, .000095212 meaning .009% Pretty small compared to the size of the inventory. You are certainly right about the human variable sir.

    -27.9% of all statistics are made up by the way.:embarassed:
