    Good outcome. The only thing that disturbs me is the police comment / attitude about not getting his gin back for "awhile". They should be required to provide him a loaner on the meantime! ;)

    Common practice from pretty much every policing agency in the US to hold a firearm involved in a crime until all the appeals are finished.

    The number one reason to have two of your favorite carry pistols. When they take the first one for an indeterminate time you have a backup.

    Left Memphis 27 years ago. Winchester and Lamar was bad back then. Now I hear it is a rolling gunfight every night.

    Stay safe.

    ANY & ALL evidence in a shooting will be seized for evidence. And, who knows what condition it will be in when you get it back (if you get it back). That's why ya can't have just one gun.

    With the New Haven PD being famously anti gun, I will be surprised if he gets it back within a year, case closed or not. I also expect the good guy to be sued with the outrageous laws we have in CT.

    Glad the good guys lived.

    From the article:

    He said everything just right according to the report; now he need to clam up and say no more on the record until if and when he has to appear before a grand jury.

    Who knows what local prosecuting attorneys might decide to do in a "blue state" --- or a "red state" for that matter. Politicians are always on the make and willing to step on innocent people to get elected to the next office.

    That's another reason to carry a Glock. If I get involved in a shooting and the cops take it, it's not nearly as painful than if I was carrying a 3K Wilson Combat or some customized 1911

    In Kentucky, I have actually known of the police to do that more than once.

    Own a Stop-and-Rob in New Haven... you'd better be armed.

    Score one for the good guy, but next time maybe he'll keep his gun on his person.

    He needs to get a lawyer to file and get his gun back!! Unless they are charging him with a crime they have no need to keep his weapon! Force there hand!:steamed: The police have no right to take his porperty without charges being filed!:faint:
